About this Plan

KK Ace. 30in span rubber powered cabin sport model. Includes full print instructions.

Quote: "The Ace is a high performance duration model - of remarkable stability. Construction is very simple and even the beginner should experience no difficulty. Study the plan and the printed balsa sheets in conjunction with these instsructions before starting to build. As some of the parts are very small, it is a good idea to cut them out only as they are required... "

Update 17/05/2013: Added printwood supplement for this file, thanks to vintage1.

I love the KK Ace. This one is slightly modified [more pics 003-005], I added a few diagonals and a folding prop but it's still a KK Ace and it definitely requires a d/t. It's my 3rd one as 'Hung' (the God of Thermals) seems to like this design! This one has a 'Button' d/t btw and flies sweetly. Easily good for over a minute in calm weather.

Yesterday I bought this little construction kit, a replica of the KeilKraft ACE, a rubber band model [more pics 006]. My grandson of 8 years likes these small planes. I usually build all my airplanes without Construction Kit as to build from a kit is not so cheap. But I found the construction box so beautiful that I bought one anyway - and my grandson will be very happy.

Here's the KeilKraft ACE [more pics 007]. I built this rubber band model airplane with electric motor. It's a pleasure to build this KeilKraf models. I'll send later pictures of the finished ACE.

Here's the KeilKraft ACE [more pics 008]. Equipped with small electric motor, flight ready only 160 grams. The smallest RC plane I ever built, with a total area of 10 dm 2. Thank you OUTER ZONE for this beautiful site. I can't stop building these small aircraft. With little wind, you can fly them anywhere without people to bother. They make no noise, and are not dangerous. Our ancestors had to fly these airplanes without RC. By modern technology, you can become. Yesterday I flew it for the first time - it is wonderful in the air.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
