About this Plan

Jetco Eastwind 76. Radio controlled powered glider model. Wingspan 76 in, wing area 420 sq in. For Cox .09 engine and 2 channels.

Quote: "The Eastwind R/C Powered Soarer features a .049 to .09 reatractable engine installation which folds into the fuselage at altitude for reduced glide drag, removable for towline lanching. Heavier loading permits flight in higher wind when lighter ships can't penetrate return from downwind thermals. Controls: 2 or 3 channels: rudder, elevator, inboard ailerons or flaps."

Note there is no printwood with this plan but a comparison with the larger plan at Eastwind 100 (oz9024) may be helpful. Most likely the wing ribs are identical. That plan also has complete instructions text.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
