About this Plan

Nieuport 17 Mini Profile. Radio control profile sport model.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "I found this model when a friend asked about it on RCU. When he found the plans, I asked for a copy so that I could get it scanned and posted to Outerzone. Here it is. There were three mini-profile rudder only model plans offered by Ace RC in 1969:
- Fokker D-VIII
- Nieuport 17
- Mini OT
The Mini OT is on Outerzone see Mini OT (oz12259). All three were designed by Chris Soenksen. The Mini-OT has a review describing the concept and the building process. While an experienced builder could build one from the plans alone, the article might be helpful to explain the aircraft.
Any of these should be a cute model when combined with modern RC equipment and electric power. So far, the Fokker D-VIII is still missing. Hopefully, someone will find a copy of the D-VIII plan and submit it to Oz. Thank you for taking care of these, Ray"


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 (oz12663) 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
    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.

* 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.
