About this Plan
Estes Astro-Blaster. Radio control rocket-glider model. For 2 channels (ailerons and elevator). The plan also shows optional alternative installation of a pusher prop Cox .049 Black Widow engine.
Note the kit included foam wing cores which were then made up by sheeting with 1/32 balsa. There were no ribs or wing formers.

The Estes Astro-Blaster is a high performance model designed for the experienced R/C builder and flyer. It requires the use of a mini or micro type R/C system.

* 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.
