About this Plan

Dioxide Darling. CO2 duration model. Pusher layout, for Campus 200 engine.

Quote: "Dioxide Darling. Designed and flown by Frank Ehling. Build a copy of this remarkable record job that did better than 23 minutes on 3 flights.

LAST July word flashed through model circles that unpredictable Frank Ehling of Jersey City NJ, had done the unpredictable again. This time he established a new national record for carbon dioxide gas powered craft of 23 minutes, 14 seconds. This 3-flight total bettered the previous record by more than 8 minutes!

This record breaking canard pusher is presented above in half-size plan form. The model is so simple (the mark of a good designer) that the drawings are self-explanatory. Total weight of the craft with engine is only 9/16 ounce. Lightest grade indoor balsa is used throughout."

* 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.
