Datafile:

ScaleType:
  • Lockheed_U-2 | help
    see Wikipedia | search Outerzone


    ScaleType: This (oz13651) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_U-2
    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 comments

I am the designer of this airplane. And although I didn't personally authorize publishing it here, I am in support of that as I do want to share this design for free. My only concern is that this is a preliminary design plan, and the U2 has not yet flown. I would like to caution that ribs should be cut slightly long and not notched until it's test-fitted over the spars for notch accuracy. Do that and you should be fine, building this.
The completed weight of mine was 11.3 oz, with battery on-board, ready for flight. Mine uses a 2 cell, 7.4V 500 mAh Lipo in the nose with a little nose ballast.

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.
