Hi there, Here's a couple of pics of a model the plan for which you only posted a few days ago! It's called the Sky Hopper [pics 003, 004]. Now the plan is all in Chinese and the only info I could glean from it was the prop and wheel sizes, nothing else! I didn't even know what it's made from but I've had some 2mm Depron foam that I bought a while ago and thought with it's angular lines it should work as a guinea pig. Seemed to work out ok, weight 21 grams ready to fly. As yet unflown due to the virus lockdown but I reckon it'll go ok.
Keep up the great work. Cheers,

So, this is quite obviously a copy of Ed Lidgard's great flying Zip (oz12531), with the windshield area of the cabin squared off, and the vertical stab shape changed. Tom Houle designed a double sized 'Zip' for Flying Model's mag by Carstens Publishing in 2012 and named it the Retro Sport.

* 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.
