Quote: "102 inch span Bud Nosen Trainer. After observing a large number of beginners (and a few old timers) in recent years, we noted they all had about the same problems or complaints in learning to fly. The models all seemed to fly too fast, respond too quickly, were usually overcontrolled and their small 60 inch size seemed to make it difficult to see what the model was doing at times.
We think we have solved most of these problems with our 102 inch trainer! Recommended power is a .60 size engine - a size you can stay with for years. Take offs and landing are at a very low speed. Control response is slow and many mistakes go unnoticed. Knowing what your model is doing at any given time is much easier because of the large size. Most beginners would like a model that looks like a real plane, so we designed our trainer to look like a Cessna 150.

* 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.
