Delfin II (oz13376)
About this Plan
Robbe Delfin II. Radio control sport-scale model glider. Wingspan 3020 mm.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "The original Robbe Delfin (oz13375) glider was first released in 1970. In 1976 the fuselage was revised, this was called Delfin II. The numbering has nothing to do with the full-size original's numbering! The wing plan fits both of them. Building instructions and catalogue pictures are German only."
Quote (using Google translate, from instructions): "General description: The Robbe-Delfin II is a fully aerobatic RC glider model with pendulum rudder. It is very elegant and has been faithfully recreated the well-known Yugoslav high-performance glider of the same name. The model is not only characterized by its excellent flight characteristics, it also shows an elegant flight pattern. This is not least due to the pleasing lines of the finished polyester fuselage with molded rudder unit.
The Robbe-Delfin II can be used universally. Even less experienced model pilots will be able to use it successfully as an introduction to model gliding.
In thermals and on slopes, the Delf in II will inspire you with its performance and appearance.
General information for the construction process: The numbering of the individual components essentially corresponds to the sequence of the construction process described in the instructions.
Please read the entire assembly instructions carefully before starting construction. In connection with the parts and materials list as well as the construction plan, get a precise overview of the type and purpose of the various components and of the construction process itself before you start work.
The construction plan for the fuselage, rudder and horizontal stabilizer with side and top view as well as cross-sections should be used for assembly. To protect the plan from being damaged by glue, an overlay made of thin, transparent polyethylene film must be used. If this is not available as a larger section, already separated packaging bags are sufficient.
There is a photo sheet in the middle of this brochure. With the individual illustrations, we give you further visual information about the respective status of the assembly.
The construction plan enclosed with the assembly box is drawn on a 1:1 scale and is used as a construction base for the elevator and vertical stabilizer. The numbering of the components corresponds to the order of assembly.
The material list is worked out as a table. It specifies the parts list number for which the boards, strips and cuts, etc. contained in the kit are used.
An example: The balsa bar 5 x 10 x 600 is included 1 x in the kit. The parts, item no. 50, 54, 55, 56, 57, made. So if you use the material list as a final piece, you never run the risk of cutting strips, boards and other materials..."
Note the photo [main pic] here, with thanks to pikpak, shows a MkII version with additional engine power pod.
Quote: "It is a MK II, according to the canopy. The external difference is not so great. The MK I (just 'Delfin' w/o anything else) had the canopy cut-out almost to the TE, which obviously weakened the fuselage too much. Instead there was a hole with (quite flimsy) ABS cover so that the aileron clevises could be fitted. Otherwise there are only small differences, the wings are unchanged AFAIK."

ScaleType: This (oz13376) 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.
