About this Plan

Oclet. Free flight model for CO2 power. Wingspan 26 in, wing area 92 sq in.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT The Performance Kits Oclet has been specially designed for use with the Telco CO2 engine, which we have been testing, before production, for a number of years. The Oclet can also be powered by the Brown CO2 and any other CO2 motors of similar all-up weight and power output. Due to the very low weight of these engines, the Oclet can also be easily converted for use as a rubber powered model.

The parasol type wing mounting configuration was chosen as it gives exceptional stability, coupled with the ability to trim for very tight and flat turns, which are required for the model to be flown on small flying fields, such as village greens, parks and recreation areas.

The prototype kit model has been extensively tested under all weather conditions, and if built correctly, will fly perfectly with virtually no trim adjustment.

CONSTRUCTION Before commencing construction, cover the plan with a piece of wax paper; the inside wrappings of cereal packets are suitable, this stops the structure sticking to it. Pin plan and wax paper to a piece of Insulating board with drawing pins.

Fuselage: Build the two basic fuselage sides, which are shown shaded, over the plan, starting with the 3/32 x 3/32 longerons, then add the 3/32 x 3/32 uprights and the formers F2A, F2B, F8, F10, and F16. F16 is only used for the rubber powered Version, and can be omitted for the CO, powered model. Care should be taken to ensure that these formers are positioned so that they are flush with the outside surfaces of these basic fuselage sides When dry build the second side over the first. All parts are held in place by steel pins while drying. Remove the sides from the plan, sand-paper lightly, and carefully separate with a razor blade.

Assemble the fuselage over the plan view, starting with the formers F7, F9 & F11 and the 3/32 x 3/32 spacers, which are positioned directly beneath them. Draw in the tail and cement the terminal 3/32 x 3/32 upright in position. Next add the formers F12, F13 & F14, and their respective lower spacers, followed by the remaining five tail section spacers. It will be noted that there is an extra top spacer, which is cemented against the one under the L.E. of the tailplane. Draw in the nose, adding F4, F5 and F6, and their respective lower spacers.

At all stages check alignment with the aid of a set-square and visually by looking down the inside of the fuselage through the nose aperture. When viewed from the nose all top formers and respective lower spacers should be parallel to each other... "

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
