Wasp RC (oz13193)
About this Plan
Wasp. Radio control sport model.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary, I thought I might donate a recent plan of mine. I've been designing my own planes for many years, but this latest one seems to have hit a sweet spot.
It's a slight scale up (26 inch) and conversion to RC of the 1955 Mercury Wasp (oz10901) CL design. Flies extremely well on a 0.6 cc Redfin TBR FI. Fast, responsive but very smooth.
Flew it at our Munro Oily Hand (about 3 hours West from my home in Melbourne) earlier in the year and they were very taken with it so I was asked for the plan which prompted me to complete it with more notes.
Another is being built by a mate near Canberra for a Schlosser 0.5cc It would also suit a PAW55 or maybe a Merlin.
It's aileron/elevator and hand launch only, but easy to fly. In fact I liked the design so much, I've built a larger one (42 in) for a Super Tigre 20/15D, that one adds throttle and rudder so ROG is easy. Flies even better.
I've a few other designs if you are interested. Regards, Warren"
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsThanks Warren & Outerzone. Really lovely looking plane. I would build it to 55 inch or so with a nice .52 Enya 4C and 4 channel. Should be a cracker.

Go for it! An even larger one had crossed my mind. Do post a photo.

Have you posted the plan for the 20/25 version, Warren?

I just scaled the existing plan to 42" and built from that with a few mods, I guess I should have a go at a real plan. Give me a few weeks.

* 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.
