About this Plan

Buzzard. Free flight towline glider model. Wingspan 60 in, wing area 345 sq in. Note plan also shows optional power pod, with 1cc diesel engine.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hi Mary/Steve, Please see attached a plan for the Buzzard, a great design by O.F.W. (Peter) Fisher. The Buzzard was kitted by Peter’s company Performance Kits in 1966. The Buzzard was described as follows:

Buzzard. 60 in span. 345 sq in wing area. O/A length 31.9 in. Tow-line, slope soaring, Free-Flight or Radio-Controlled sailplane. It can easily be converted to power assisted flight with 0.75-1c.c. engines.

I’m also including a Performance Kit advertisement, from Aeromodeller January 1973, which shows the Buzzard and its description.

The plan for this came from the estate of the late John Kemp, via his friend David Hill. John Kemp was a close friend of the late Peter Fisher and had a number of Peter Fisher’s plans. I have been working with David Hill to get these plans repaired, scanned and cleaned up, so they could be posted on Outerzone. So much of Peter Fisher’s designs are still hard to find, or simply unavailable, so it will be great to see them on Outerzone. All the best, Mark Robinson"

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

* 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.
