About this Plan

Hawker Tempest. Radio control scale model WWII fighter. Wingspan 106 cm. Scale is 1/12.

Sport-scale model designed for RC combat.

Note this plan is freely available online (see datafile), since it was shared by the designer himself.

Quote: "Blueprint only for private, but not commercial use."

Quote: "The other model is a 1/12 Hawker Tempest and yet untested, not build and flown. In 2009 I published a plan for the Hawker Typhoon which proved to be easy to build and fly, very tough in aircombat contests and is build until today in good numbers. I made the minor changes from Typhoon to Tempest already in 2009, but never managed to build one due to many other projects. If you recognise any mistakes, please tell me so I can correct the plan for other modellers. Also position of CG is drawn only approximately. Pictures and experiences from you would be helpful to bring this plan in a modellers magazine one day.

I've flown the Typhoon with .15 and .20 engines, others used .25 and also electric motors of around 300-400W and 3S3000-4000 accumulators. It's a small and light aeroplane and doesn't need much power to fly. For aircombat contests and the tight manouvers flown more reserve is needed, of course.

As guidance for building the Tempest, it's a good advice to follow the build of the Typhoon: www.rc-network.de/forum/showthread..."


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

    ScaleType: This (oz12422) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hawker_Tempest
    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.

At least one plan by Timo has been published on RCME, and he is also on https://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/. I'm sure there's something about this plan there, too. I also like the 1/12 Bf 109 plan that he sells, primarily designed for scale combat but will work as a small fun warbird. It has options for many versions.

Yes, I put the link to Timo's post releasing the plan in the datafile, on this page. For reference. It's at https://www.modelflying.co.uk/forums/postings.asp?th=154347 :)

* 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.
