About this Plan

Skylane. Radio control sport-scale model. Wingspan 72 in, wing area 700 sq in, for .45 to .61 engines and 3 or 4 channels.

Quote: "Ultra stable stand-off scale, trainer or sport model. Really big, absolutely beautiful, quick to build, and a dream to fly! This nicely sums up the Global Skylane kit. It is the best looking intermediate sport flyer around. The Sklyane is a big, ultra stable, semi-scale, easy-to-see airplane that wil fly most maneuvers like the real thing.

The Skylane's airfoil transitions from semi-symmetrical at the center panel to almost flat bottomed at the tips. The scale-like tapered wingtips have built in washout, giving rock-steady low speed flight with no tendancy to tip stall. All these features add up to create a truly great, semi-scale, sport aerobatic airplane that you will love to build and fly.

Intelligently deisgned for easy building. Although semi-scale, we strived to design the Skylane to build quickly. Feature for feature this totally awesome, fully cut and ready to build kit beats anything in the 60-size market. When you fly it with a .60-.65 however it is a top notch sport flyer. Yes this one plane which satisfies the needs of all flying skill levels."

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

    ScaleType: This (oz13215) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
