About this Plan
Robbe Delfin. Radio control scale model glider. Wingspan 3020 mm.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "The glider Delfin was released by the former German company Robbe in 1970, based on the Yugoslavian glider prototype, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VTC_Delfin. It could be built with either a thermal wing with 3m wingspan or an acrobatic wing with ailerons and 2.20m... Building instructions and catalogue pictures are German only."
Quote (using Google translate from catalog pages): "The Robbe Delfin is a fully aerobatic RC glider model with pendulum rudder. It is elegant and was faithfully recreated from the well-known Yugoslav high-performance glider. The model is not only characterized by its excellent flight characteristics, it also shows an elegant flight pattern. This is achieved not least by the pleasing lines of the finished polyester fuselage with molded rudder unit.
The Robbe Delfin can be used universally. It is therefore not only suitable for experts and for competition flights. Less experienced model pilots will also be able to use it successfully as an introduction to glider aerobatics. The expert succeeds in performing aerobatics, his whole ability to show. You can choose your Delfin version from three assembly packages according to your wishes. In addition, rib sets for the thermal and aerobatic areas, and the elevator ribs, are available separately."

ScaleType: This (oz13375) 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/VTC_Delfin
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.
