About this Plan

Touchdown. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 48 in, wing area 362 sq in. For .15 to .25 engines.

Note the Touchdown (oz1229) was first published in FM, April 1966. This here is a later kit plan from the kit as sold by Aero Precision.

Note this plan shows 2 optional wing layouts: a 48 in span 'Trainer' wing with flat-bottom section (no ailerons); and a 42 in span 'Perfomance' wing with semi-symmetrical section (with ailerons).

Planfile includes build instructions.

Quote: "Good day, I ran across an anomaly in a plan and figured that it was worth passing on to OZ. I purchased a kit called the Touchdown. I opened the box and looked at the ribset and it was semi symmetrical. Then I looked at the plans on OZ (1229) and the plans showed a flat bottom airfoil so I unrolled the plans and compared them.

The kit box shows the same designer but the kit plans are different from the plans currently on OZ. It looks like the same fuselage but the horizontal stabilizer is a slab balsa as opposed to the built up stabilizer on OZ. More noticable is the wing, My kit plans (and the kit box cover) offer two wing options. One flat bottomed airfoil and one semi symmetrical. Also different span options. I'm attaching a picture of the box top and a copy of the plans."

Update 4/4/2023: Added alternate plan scan, thanks to theshadow.

User comments

Please find my 2023 finished Touchdown (oz14042) [main pic & 007]. This kit (from OZ posting) was almost complete with the wing parts 95% there. The fuselage was less complete and looked like the kit was previously started, missing all of the formers, firewall, sides, & bottom. The biggest challenge was converting this to electric and creating the curved nose covering to access electronics. My build is a little over 2Lbs, and flies well with a .10 Rimfire motor and sub-micro servos.

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.
