About this Plan

ULS Cherokee (Ultra Low Speed Cherokee). Radio control sport model for indoor flying. Wingspan 29 in, wing area 150 sq in. Uses foam construction.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Mary/ Steve, We are releasing 2 plans for our ULS planes; Cherokee and V35 Bonanza. These are now out of production. See attached full size PDF files, as well as building manuals. Links to YouTube Flight videos are below.

The ULS series was designed to be Ultra Low Speed indoor planes. We have two planes in this series, the Cherokee and V Tail Bonanza. The production kits were cut from a proprietary material, but Dollar Tree foamboard (paper removed) proved to be a perfect substitute.

Keep doing what you do with Outerzone. We donate thru PayPal to your most excellent site, and strongly encourage others to do so. Thank You, Joe Petro"

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

    ScaleType: This (oz14499) 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/Piper_PA-28_Cherokee
    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.

Question: How thick is the foam material? Thanks!

I think the Dollar Tree foamboard mentioned is 5mm thickness.

I've built whole airplanes from Dollar Tree Foamboard, and it has a big advantage over any other foamboard. it weighs half as much. The actual name is Adams Readi Board, but Dollar Tree is the only place I've found it locally, price recently increased to $1.25. Inflation. Still cheap, comes in 20" x 30" sheets. Won't last long, but made a real good quick and dirty test model for receivers of unknown goodness. Paper peels right off easily if you need to bend it. Hot melt glue works fine.

* 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.
