About this Plan

Gee Bee Profile 40. Radio control profile sport model. Wingspan 44-1/2 in, for OS 40LA engine.

Quote: "If you have been looking for a way to put the FUN back into your Sunday flying, you have just found it The Gee Bee Profile is a nimble little profile hot-dogger that assembles in only a few hours and is easy on the budget. It does not require any special building or flying skill - just a few hand tools and a little tail-dragger time.

With its oversized control surfaces it turns, loops and rolls in the blink of an eye, but the thick, high lift airfoil and light wing loading allow the plane to slow way down for gentle spot landings. If equipped with an engine like the OS 40 LA it's possible to be airborne in a matter of feet, zip through three rolls, loop on its own axis, then go into the 'hover' mode while waiting for your buddies to get off the ground.

What more can we say? The Gee Bee Profile maximizes fun for minimal cost and time!"

    ScaleType: This (oz14825) 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.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gee_Bee_Model_R
    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.

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.

Scaling

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.
