Quote: "Hello Mary, I hope you and your loved ones are doing well. I am sending you this material, which is my own design.
Brief introducton: I thought of a model that would allow me to perform many acrobatc maneuvers, that would be very stable in its fight, that could fly at high and low speed, in addition to being propelled by an engine glow and that this is a Cox .049, since it is one of the most world-known engines, also to the list of objectives, I wanted it to be totally transportable and I got to work on the drawing board.
After making some pencil and paper drawings, the desired model was born, which I called Cox Fun Model. The model was successful. He can perform all kinds of stunts and will give you a lot of satisfaction.
It can even be an excellent model for learning how to do some low-cost aerobatics. The message is: 'You can, you can do it!'

* 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.
