About this Plan

Eagle 2. Radio control sport/trainer model. Wingspan 63 in, wing area: 715 sq in. For 29-.45 engines.

Quote: "INSTRUCTIONS: Welcome to the sport of Radio Control flying! Congratulations on selecting the Mark II Eagle - today’s top trainer and all around sport model. Many new improvements make the Mark II even easier to build and fly than past versions of the Eagle.

It may seem a bit early to speak of flying, but your successful first flight begins right here. Before starting assembly, please read carefully through this instruction booklet. It won’t take that long, and building your model and installing your equipment will seem easier, since you will know where you are going.

ENGINE, PROPELLER & ACCESSORIES: Your plane flies well using any 2-cycle engine size from .35 to .45, or 4-cycle engine .45 to .61. The numbers .35 to .45 refer to the amount of space the piston moves through inside the cylinder of the engine. This space is called displacement; larger displacement generally means more power. If you live in a hot climate, or your flying field is approximately 3,000 feet or more above sea level, you should stay with a .45 engine. It’s a good idea to select an engine that is popular at the flying field, so that if you have any engine problems, other modelers will be familiar with the engine and be able to help.

USING THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL: Before you start gluing and sanding, take some time becoming familiar with the plans and looking through this entire instruction booklet. It is designed to guide you through the construction process step by step, so build in the order given in this book. Balancing, setting up and flying the model are also covered. Like a full-size airplane, the EAGLE II is built from basic structures (stabilizer, fin, wing, etc.), which are then assembled into the complete airplane. Special procedures or comments will usually be explained before a step, so you will be prepared. If a step begins with a statement like 'Note,' 'Warning,' or 'Important,' it is a good idea to read through the step before doing it.

A check-off box appears at the beginning of each step. Check these boxes as you build, so you can tell at a glance what steps you have completed. Some steps are repeated and must be marked twice, as in the case of the left and right wing panel.

HOW TO READ THE PLAN: There is one plan sheet in this kit, showing the Fuselage (Body), the Wing, and the Tail Parts. Everything on the plan is drawn to full-size and shape and shows how the finished parts fit together.

The plan is drawn to show the model completely assembled, but as a result, the areas inside or underneath are covered up, making it hard to understand how these parts fit together. Therefore, for clarity, some parts are drawn with hidden lines, others with breakaway views, and some are entirely removed from the structure and shown separately. For example, on the fuselage, the left side of the completed model has been removed to show the details inside. Sometimes a surface is broken away to reveal the detail behind or underneath. Dashed lines indicate details that are hidden behind or under another part of the surface..."

I just received one of these kits from a fellow club member but the plans were missing. This will be most helpful, thank you so much for posting!

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.
