About this Plan

Eee-Z-Fli P-50+1. Radio control sport scale model.

Quote: "At one time or another, many modelers just have to have a P-51. Many choose to model one of the various military versions, while others elect to be represented in the fast=paced world of air racing. The same basic airplane fits either application, so the choice is yours - the nostalgic days of invasion stripes or the flash and glamour of a Reno pylon racer.

The version of the classic North American fighter presented here follows the basic concept of the Eee-Z-Fli (oz12170) efforts published in Model Builder. Ease of construction, use of familiar materials and 'polite' flight characteristics were p[rime considerations. The basic appearance although not truly scale is pleasing and leaves little doubt as to what aircraft is being modeled. Like previous Eee-Z-Fli designs, repairs, should the ground rise up and bash your creation, are easy and straightforward.

The initial flight of the P-50+1 demonstrated pleasing performance. Ground handling was crisp and precise; even with the scale tail wheel location, takeoff tracking was straight. With neuttral elevator trim, the tail came up and the airplane lifted off into a gentle climb. A trim flight in the pattern required only one click of left aileron correction. The P-50+1 is stable in both pitch and roll, and the rudder has a good handle on any yaw requirements. Slow flight and stall exiercises demonstrated no adverse characteristics. With closed throttle the glides is slightly nose down and the flare and landing fall into the h-hum category, followe dby rollout, easily corrected with a touch of rudder. Later flights have indicated that the model is delighted with wheel landings.

With a little power left on, she rolls straight and the tail stays up for what seems like forever, just like the big boys! With the OS 25 FP running a bit on the rich side, loops, rolls and their usual combinations are very pleasing. The model flies smoothly, going where you tell it to with satisfying precision. With scale ailerons instead of the often used full-span type, the roll rate is more scale. Those desiring a faster rate can increase the aileron length inboard when building the wing.

So, if fighter tactics or pylon polishing are your bag, break out the balsa and start cuttting..."

    ScaleType: This (oz12204) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_P-51_Mustang
    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.

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.
