Fokker DR1 (oz13360)
About this Plan
Fokker DR1. Radio control scale model. Wingspan 72 in, for Quadra power. Scale is 1/4.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Note since this is an Uncle Willies plan, it is very possible this isn't his design. This plan may well be the work of someone else, copied without credit. On sheet #4 of the plan there are codes (SAP-2 and UW-4) for cowls supplied by http://fiberglassspecialtiesinc.com at 1/4 scale. Does SAP maybe mean this came originally from Scratch-a-Plane?
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 (oz13360) 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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_Dr.I
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.

User commentsYep...it looks like a Fokker Dr1 plan from Flipper Flag Mfg (Scratch-a-Plane)!!! They also had very nice plans for 1/4 Scale Nieuport 17 & Fokker D-VIII... Greetings... Pascal

There is a DR-1 short kit available that uses Scratch A Plane plans.
Not sure if the Uncle Willie plans are the same, sure looks similar, with the same cowl listed. Charlie Simmons, one of our club members, built one years ago, flew fine, ground handling awful of course, it IS a DR-1. Uncle Willie is no longer with us, having assumed room temperature a few years ago. He re-drew many kit plans and did a good job, not bothering to get permission. If you are interested, download now, do not wait. His family likely threw them all away, similar to what happened to the RCM plans library. Some available, most lost. Your mission, Steve, should you choose to accept it: Find the rest of the lost RCM plans. They're out there somewhere, about half now on OZ.

Didn’t Uncle Willie also tend to re-scale his redrawn plans? I only bring it up as a caution to anyone who expects someone else’s kit parts to just fit.

* 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.
