About this Plan

Monocoupe (1935). Free flight scale model for .020 power.

Quote: "This is Hurst Bowers' plan for a 30 inch span model of the Monocoupe 90A 2-place cabin monoplane from the 1930s. He designed it about 1963, it was published in the French magazine MRA and later in the March 1998 issue of MaxFax, the newsletter of the DC Maxecuters club. Hurst's plan is for free-flight with an .020 engine, but he notes in the MaxFax article it would be ideal for electric power. If I built it, I'd likely scale it to about 45 inch span for electric RC."

    ScaleType: This (oz12017) 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
    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.

Hi Steve and Mary, Please find attached some shots of my completed Monocoupe from oz12017 [003,004]. I increased it to a 45 inch wingspan and converted to electric power. Thank you for all that you guys do!

Hi Steve and Mary, Attached is a nice photo in the sun of my Monocoupe from oz12017. I decided to do away with the wheels and wing struts, so that I could access the cockpit from the top and bottom for battery access.

* 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.
