About this Plan

Avro 560. Rubber scale model. 1923 Ultralight aeroplane.

Quote: "The Avro 560 was contructed in 1923 and was piloted by Bert Hinkler in the Light Aeroplane competition held at Lympne, England. The '6' on the rudder was assigned to it during the meet, where the Avro won the Endurance event. Drawn by Bill Hannan 1967. For best results, keep it light!"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz11683) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro_560
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Here are some photos of the Avro 560 [pics 003-006] which I built from plans on your site. I have not had a chance to fly it yet, due to both bad weather and the Covid-19 lockdown. I hope you can use them.

* 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.
