About this Plan

Gnumpf-X. Radio control sport model.

Wingspan 101 cm.

Note plan shows parts at fullsize, and general layout at 50% scale.

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

Quote: "I put two of my plans on Dropbox for free download (for private use, not commercial). In times of Corona the best thing to do is stay at home and build another model.

The first plan is for the Gnumpf-X, a model designed in 2006 for pylon racing but due to perfect flying characteristics also suitable for fun flying or just running in of new ic engines (free motor mount means good cooling). Two airfoils are possible, I would recommend SD6060. Faster than the 8052 but as easy to fly.

In case you don't have thin plywood available for the fuselage, 3 to 5 mm balsa will do the job as well. You just have to change the frames to a bigger cutout.

In Germany there still is a small pylon class where the Gnumpf-X and similar models are flown at speeds from 180 to 250 kmh at low height for four minutes around a tight and short course. The models are powered by up to .32 ic or electric engines. The complete equipment is standard material and therefore very cheap. Only the unlimited class take these stock motors and beef them up a bit. See https://club-pylon.de.tl/

Best regards, have fun building and flying and stay healthy, Timo"

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.
