About this Plan
RC-1. Radio control sport model.
The original RC-1 design was by Chester Lanzo in 1934, with wingspan 84 in. This here is a later redrawn plan for 3 channel RC, with wingspan 63 in.
Quote: "Scaled and adapted for R/C Assist by Alfredo Hebön of Argentina."
Direct submission to Outerzone.
This plan is available for download in CAD format.

User commentsDoes anyone have a scan of the 1934 original RC-1 plan? I guess maybe there never was such a plan, if (according to the AMA bio) it wasn't a great success, and Lanzo moved quickly on to building later versions.

Hi Steve and Mary, I don't have the plans for this ship but I do have a nicely built seven-foot-span RC-1 in my shop, which I got from the estate of a modeling friend [main pic]. My friend didn't build it; who did, is unknown. The RC-1 at one time was being built in numbers for SAM O.T. R/C competition because it did fly reasonably well, could be built light and by swapping engines, could be flown in several different classes.

I have the original RC-1 plan and will get it to Outerzone ASAP

* 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.
