About this Plan

Focke Wulf P0310 Victoria Tail. Free flight scale model for rubber power.

Quote: "Greetings Steve and Mary, I saw this free download from Tom Hollman's maxfliart YouTube Channel, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ctoCKsoTcY

The FW Victoria Tail was one of the German Secret Projects from WW2 but was never flown. This 25 in rubber-powered free-flight model was designed in 2007 by Michael Isermann, then beautifully build and flown by Keith Sterner in 2011, using his self-made contra-rotating prop unit. (However, these units are no longer being produced.) The model flew."

Note pics here on this page showing completed model [main pic, 003] were found online. These are stills grabbed from the excellent video by Tom Hollman on his YouTube Channel maxfliart, see link above.

ScaleType:
  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

A beautiful plan, this must be quite distinctive on a flying field. The original never got away from the back of the envelope, which was good for the pilots who would have to fly it and try to live and tell the tail, I mean, tale. A pity about the contra-prop unit going out, it seemed to have worked well in the quoted YT link.
Iron Kreuz is a funny "company" name, the absolute best in my memory was a US outfit doing vacform scale airplanes in the 70s named The Guano Aircraft And Zeppelin Works. Unbeatable.

I have a couple of aircraft (the Douglas Skyshark and the Westland Wyvern) with contra-rotating props that I would like to build. I would love to get my hands on one of those contra-rotating units.
As an alternative I have also thought about using a LEGO Technic differential to get the props contra-rotating. LEGO has two different differentials. One is looks like this:

The other looks like this:

They should work for this model too. You will still have to do some fabication, but I think it is do-able.. You would have to put a shaft in a shaft where one runs off the gears (changing the rotation direction) and the other is a direct drive.

Thanks Pit. Tom also has a link to some pictures in the description of that video of the contra-rotating drives too. It might help those who would like to fabricate one themselves.
I also found a thread with instructions on how to fabricate a drive if anyone would like to build one here:

It is in Czech so you will have to have google translate it if Czech is not your langage.

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.
