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 (oz146) 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
    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.

Hello, Congratulations on your site. I built the glider Cicogna from the plan Alberto Dotti. The only change concerns the fuselage to add a brushless motor. Here are some pictures to complement your site if you wish. Best regards,

I am very pleased to see that this site has inspired modelers to build from the plans residing on this site. The plus is that we get to see photos of the finished models. This will, in turn, generate more inspiration to build again.

Hi just starting this model, any pointers as with regards to using a brushless motor.

The Speed 400 on 7 cells was really being pushed to the limit. Running at between 8.5-10 Amps (depending on the prop), it was converting about 2/3 to power and about 1/3 to heat. So the power delivered to the 6x4 propeller was a measly 40-45 watts.
I have used the Emax CF 28-05 1600kV on a number of models as a 'lively' replacement for the Speed 400. Run it on a 7x4 and, if you have too much power, throttle it back on your transmitter using 'Gas Curve' if you have that feature. Use a 2S Lipoly and be generous with the speed controller - an 18A Turnigy Plus would be perfect!

* 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.
