About this Plan

Eagle Runt. Free flight cabin power model. Wingspan 44 in. wing area 225 sq in. For Arden ignition engine.

Quote: "A realistic cabin type model with super performance for the contest and sport flyer. This exceptional flyer has a wing span of 44 inches and 225 sq inches wing area. Designed to meet all AMA rule requirements.

Simplicity and sturdiness of construction is the keynote of the construction of this model. The fuselage is the conventional square box or framework type and requires no particular skill to construct. Be sure, however, to study and thoroughly analyse the plans to be completely famioliar with all phases of construction.

Before starting construction be sure to place some good quality waxed paper over the plans. The side view is the only section to be covered with waxed paper. The use of waxed paper will prevent the glue from adhering to the plans.

The 1/4 square longerons should all be good straight grain. After the longerons have been selevted place them down over plans as shown ion fig.1 Be sure to place the pins alongside of the longerons and not through the wood... "

I saw a Runt fly decades ago at a Brooklyn Skyscrapers meet in NY and have been looking for the plans ever since! Thank you OZ!

A promising looking "plotcher" with real charisma that would actually have to be scaled UP for 1/2A Texaco. The high aspect ratio wing and airfoil are an asset but I would give serious consideration to beefing up the wing sparring.

* 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.
