About this Plan

Diamond Dust. Radio control sport model.

See supplement file for full kit instructions. This is very detailed at 56 pages, and includes colour photos of the build.

Quote: "Introduction: Thank you for purchasing the Diamond Dust Kit high performance delta wing aircraft. Backed by Diamond Dust’s high quality reputation, the Diamond Dust will provide you with the superior performance and features you are looking for in a high speed high performance aircraft. The Diamond Dust features lightweight balsa, composite tubes, and light-ply construction. This lightly loaded delta wing design makes it ideal for extremely aggressive maneuvers as well as excellent low speed maneuverability.

Before Starting Assembly: Before beginning the assembly of your Diamond Dust, remove each part from the box and the parts bag for inspection. Closely inspect the wood pieces and parts bag for damage. If you find any damaged or missing parts, contact the place of purchase.

Using the Manual: This manual is divided into sections to help make assembly easier to understand and to provide breaks between each major section. Remember to take your time, and follow the directions closely. You can also check on the Diamond Dust RC website for any updates to this manual at www.diamonddustrc.com

Section 1: Framing of the Airframe.

Step 1. Locate all parts listed in materials list, and take inventory of all parts. This will help you familiarize yourself with the various components. Lay your print out on large flat surface (the larger and flatter the better). Cover your plans with either parchment paper or wax paper and tape them down to secure to your work surface.

Step 2. Assemble the rear spar by locating the tubes labeled 'Rear Spar' and 'Spar extender'. Insert the spar extenders into each end of the rear spar. You may have to lightly sand the spar extenders so that they go into the rear spar with a moderate amount of force, but first try the opposite end of the spar extender tube to see which end fits the best.

Step 3. Lay the assembled spar on the print to see how far the tubes should fit into one another. Adjust both sides so the center main spar is centered on the print and the end tubes extend to the correct length shown on the print (be as precise as possible when matching the print through all the steps). When the rear spar matches the print (tube engagement and overall length), apply a drop of thin CA on each joint..."

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.
