About this Plan

Aviette. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 830 mm, for 0.6 cc diseel engine.

Quote (google-translated from the German): "The predecessors of today's ultralight aircraft were so-called 'Aviettes' (the word 'avietka' is used in Czech), which were built by amateur designers as early as the 1920s and 1930s. These were mostly small and very simply constructed aircraft that were powered by converted motorcycle engines.

Since the operation of these light aircraft caused more trouble than joy at the time, they were not widely used. But for the model builder, the replica of these simple and often very pretty aircraft is an obvious choice.

The Aviette model is not a semi-scale model of an original; however, its appearance is typical of the constructions of the time. The drive of this model is also almost 'historic' if you install a small model diesel with 0.6 cm displacement. With this motorization, the Aviette has sufficient power for prototypical flying, because the light aircraft of the time were of course not powerfully motorized.

If you like it a little faster, you can of course drive the model with a small glow plug. A Cox Tee Dee 049 or 051 helps the Aviette achieve amazing flight performance.

Despite its pretty appearance, the Aviette is very easy to set up. A short construction description is therefore sufficient for the successful construction of the model.

Fuselage and landing gear: The fuselage is constructed from two side walls made of 2 mm balsa, plywood frames 1 and 2 and frames 3 and 4 made of 2 mm balsa. Do not forget; The tank room must be carefully sealed with fuel-resistant paint. The lid for closing the tank compartment consists of 1.5 mm balsa and 0.6 mm plywood. Everything else can be seen from the plan.

The landing gear is machined from 2mm Standralite and attached to the fuselage in the usual way. The wheels have a diameter of 40 mm.

Elevator and rudder: The tail parts are made of 3 mm balsa. The rudders are hung on thin hinges (Kavan, Order No. 129). After both parts have been covered, the vertical stabilizer is glued into the cut-out in the horizontal stabilizer. Finally, the fully assembled tail unit is glued to the fuselage.

Wing: The wing consists almost entirely of balsa; only the scorn is made from a 10x4mm pine strip. The two wing halves are attached to a stable middle part and firmly connected to it with 3 mm plywood connectors. After gluing the wing connectors, the center section is planked at the top with 0.6 mm thick plywood. The wing is attached to the fuselage with two M4 plastic screws..."

* 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.
