Quote: "Live Wire Cosmic Wind. An R/C Scale model for rudder only or multi-control flying.
After 2 years of exacting development dmeco is proud to bring you this new Live Wire 'Cosmic Wind'! Among the most interesting aircraft of our time are the cute little Goodyear Trophy air racers; built by amateurs these fabulous little airplanes compiled a fantastic record for speed and safety!
The Live Wire 'Cosmic Wind is patterned after a series of them which offers several fine versions from which to choose. In gleaming red and white it is the 'Little Toni,' as number 4 in rich bronze and cream it is the trophy winning 'Minnow,' or in brillant green and white it can be the 'Ballerina'; three great air racers which you can duplicate and fly in miniature!
Here is a low wing R/C scale model which will handle any type of R/C equipment with ease!
Its extreme stability allows it to be flown rudder only and you can have peak contest performance from this single control. The plans and instructions show lust how it is done. For the more advanced the Cosmic Wind gets the most from the wonderful 8 channel equipment, the models inherent light weight plus its load carrying ability makes this a most satisfactory combination!
There is no limit to the maneuvers which can be performed with the Cosmic and 8 channel, all loops, rolls, spins, inverted flight, you name it and the Cosmic will do it! Ground handling is excellent too, taxiing and take offs are something to behold! Complete info for multi-controls is furnished.

ScaleType: This (oz11702) 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/LeVier_Cosmic_Wind
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.

* 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.
