Dear Steve and Mary, here's my hull under construction: a small electric motor in place of the rubber engine [more pics 009, 010]. I hope to build as light as possible.

Here is my GYPSY, structural work done [more pics 011,012]. Now the remote control installation and finally cover with Japanese paper. The rubber band model weighs 8 OZS or 230 grams. I'm going to try to obtain this weight with RC. Of course, it will be impossible to get 8 OZS or 230 GRAMS, but 300 grams or 10 OZS should be able. It is very fun with so little wood to build a model that is also still RC flying. And it takes very little money.

Hi Steve and Mary: first flight made today, very good airplane the Gypsy by KeiKraft [more pics 013, 014]. Will be even better if it's summer, now it's cold.

Please find attached a few photos of my Gipsy, built from the Keil Kraft kit recently relaunched by RIPMAX [more pics 015-019]. It is a very nice kit, the wood choice in mine being quite good and the laser cutting helping building no end. I converted it to electric power and radio control, as I wanted a park-flyer without the 'downwind chase' hassle and did not fancy piling-up turns on a rubber motor. The model was covered in Solarfilm's Litespan for its strength and puncture resistance. It flies great on a 'bell-type' outrunner motor that, with a GWS 8"X4.3" propeller cut down to 7" diameter draws 5.3A from a 2S 500mAh battery. The review was published in the RCM&E Feb 2019 issue should any of the 'Outerzone' fans wish to know more details about the conversion.

* 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.
