About this Plan

Patriot XL. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 55 in, wing area 742 sq in, for 60 power.

Discontinued kit from Great Planes.

Quote: "The easy, affordable way to enjoy big jet excitement! Like the original, the Patriot XL offers the hot pilot an irresistible combination: the exhilaration of jet-like speeds and looks matched to the building ease and affordability of other Great Planes' kits. Designed for .60-size excitement, the Patriot XL avoids the costs and complexity of traditional ducted fan jets by relying on familiar sport techniques for building and a front-mounted glow engine for speed.

Rockets into express-elevator climbs to the roof - then dives for screaming high-speed passes that exceed 100 mph! Excels on the power of a .90 and builds with the speed and ease of Great Planes' best engineering.

Fuselage and wing build flat on the boards from interlocking wood parts that ensure strength, straightness and perfect alignment. Unique turtledeck builds onto the finished fuselage, and transforms the space underneath into a strong, secure location for a retract air tank.

Photo-illustrated instructions simplify every building step, from installing dual aileron servos in each wing half to the addition of optional flaps and optional retracts."

Note the full (48 page) kit manual for the Patriot XL is available as a free download from

Quote:"The larger, faster, easier-to-build Patriot XL expands on the incredible popularity and performance of the original Great Planes Patriot kit. Designed around .60-.90 size engines, whether 2-stroke or 4, the Patriot XL provides amazing performance in an easy-to-build sport scale kit. Add the optional retracts and flaps to the thin, Selig-airfoil wing, and your Patriot XL goes from quick to blistering fast AND is easy to settle in for carrier-like landings."

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
