About this Plan

Puss Moth. Free flight model for rubber power.

Quote: "De Havilland Puss Moth - Hearts Content.

THE first westward solo flight was accomplished by Captain JA Mollison, a British flyer, in his De Havilland Puss Moth, 'Hearts Content'. Captain Mollison took off from Portmarnock Strand, Ireland, and landed at Pennfield Ridge, New Brunswick, Canada, August 19 completing the flight in 30 hours 12 minutes. This marks the shortest time from land to land on a westward crossing. Leaving Canada, Mollison set his wheels down on Roosevelt field, Long Island, New York, August 21.

The 'Hearts Content' is powered with a Gypsy 3 inverted 4-cylinder air-cooled engine of 120 horsepower. The body of the Puss Moth is constructed of steel tubing, covered with fabric. the tail assembly consisting of a bal-anced rudder and an adjustable stabilizer. The tail wheel is of steerable type, and is controlled from the cabin. "

    ScaleType: This (oz14198) 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/De_Havilland_Puss_Moth
    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.
