About this Plan

Robbe Geier. Radio control flying wing model. Wingspan 1515 mm.

Update 13/01/2020: Added model photo and catalogue pages PDF, thanks to ReneWalther.

Note catalogue pages show both Geier (#3150) and Geier-E (#3151). So essentially, the same model design could be used in three ways: as a glider; for IC power with a pod-mounted tractor prop; for electric power with direct drive brushed motor pusher-prop layout.

Update 23/04/2020: Added instructions, thanks to tiptipflyer.

Good afternoon, my name is Alberto Bortolin from Italy, Venice. I'm a 30 years old paraglider pilot and RC plane builder and pilot from when I was 12. First, thank you for your website and the effort you do to keep it updated. Outerzone has become my plane Bible, I love vintage planes and I am actually building 2: the Super Sinbad which is ongoing and the Robbe Geier (revisited) that I made last week during the forced Covid19 quarantine [pic 004]. Not having balsa in my workshop and with all the shops closed, I have made the wings with fiberglass covered foam, and the fuselage with 4mm plywood. I would be honored if you would put the pic in your gallery, but if you don't want that's no problem!
Thank you again, have a nice day!

Hi Steve and Mary, here are the instructions in German, English and French for the Robbe Geier (oz11695) and a picture of my Geier [pic 005] which I am flying for decades now. At first it was powered by a Webra Sport Glo (1.7ccm), now it uses a brushless motor. A lot more power and more than twice the flying time. Best regards,

Hello everyone, for those interested I have a mould of the fuselage of the Robbe Geier and will be soon able to produce some laser cut parts. I'm not equipped with a vacuum form machine for the canopy... If somebody can, please tell me...

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.
