About this Plan

Kosmo 3. Radio control pattern plane, for electric power.

Note the 'original' drawing here is the CAD zip download (in dwg format). That's the file that Giuseppe sent us, and that is his design, his work. The PDF file you see here is really just a taster, a PDF file in this slot for Oz users who don't have a CAD viewer.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Mary, This is not a design of mine, but it has a more important origin, it was designed by one of the best Italian F3A pilot of 70-80 years vintage: Benito Bertolani. He is over 80 now but still 'playing' with model. He has taught some teenagers how to build and fly free flight models. His pupils participated with good placements in one of the last world championships.

The model is named Kosmo 3 and is still kitted by an Italian company, but, while many models were built from the kit, nobody, Benito too, has a 1:1 plan. So I had fun drawing up a new plan, with the help of Benito himself. While the original model and the one kitted are glow powered I draw Kosmo 3 as an electric powered model.

Enclosed are the plan and a few photos of the electric version with the colors of the original one. You can also see Benito signing the plan and holding it with me. Ciao"

Update 13/2/2023: Added alternate version of the plan, thanks to Pit. This is as published on the Modellismo mag site, and includes the 'with pleasure' signature of Benito Bertolani.

Supplementary file 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.


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.
