Air Champ (oz12288)
About this Plan
Air Champ. Control line sport model, for OK Cub .074 engine.
Note this planfile includes both the original 1957 Scientific plan and the modern redrawn plan (in vectorPDF format).
Quote: "Here's my latest project to add to your site. It's a Scientific Air Champ. It was designed by Walt Musciano and kitted in the late '50s. It was the first control line plane I ever built. My initial try with the Scientific kit, about 1962, was too heavy and couldn't stay in the air with a Cox .049. I wasn't smart enough to thin the walls of the 'hollow log' fuselage in the kit.
Fifty-eight years later I scratch-built this one from much lighter wood and powered it with an OK Cub .074 motor. Wingspan is 17.75 in and it weighs 7.5 ounces.
I made my own CAD plans from a kit I bought on eBay. Brodak dope, Veco wheels, Froom spinner and the cowling I made from a Diet Pepsi can. Regards,"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsLook at that brushed finish, every swirl equal to its neighbour and all in perfect alignment :-)

* 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.
