Gross Wing Half A (oz12989)
About this Plan
Gross Wing 1/2 A. Free flight power model. Pusher layout.
Note the 72 inch Gross Flying Wing (oz12976) was originally designed in 1941 by Bernard Gross. This here is a later redrawn plan, by Eut Tileston in 1988, showing a reduced scale version at wingspan 50 in, for 1/2A engines.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsEut Tileston won a lot of contests in the eighties with his 1/2A Gross. This was pre-computer radio days. On the 80in enlargement, he had sliding trays. On this one, he held the transmitter at a 45 deg angle to achieve the mixing. Orientation on the horizon could be difficult if you had short term memory issues.

* 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.
