About this Plan

Altair. Radio control sport aerobatic model, for brushless electric power. Wingspan 50 in, wing area 450 sq in.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "I designed the Altair to use the (then) new Jeti 30/3 inrunner brushless motor and a 10-NiCAD pack. Obviously, the NiCADs can be replaced by a 4S lipo pack, although attention needs to be paid to keeping the CG in the right place.

The Altair was a good sport acrobat, capable of most sport maneuvers (ie loop, roll, spin, stall turn).

The construction is pretty much classical stick work, with about the only odd points being the triangular cutouts in the fuselage sides and the use of ‘facing strips’ to keep the shrinkfilm covering on the sides from touching (and sticking to) the side framework.

The aileron torque rods (not shown) were commercial products."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
