About this Plan

Little Ship. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 44 in, wing area 350 sq in.

Note this is not a full size plan. This is a scan of the drawing as it was printed in the pages of the magazine in 1951.

Quote: "As for actual ship design, that is a story that could fill a book; however, I have included a few examples as a coss section of work done in this new class. The ship shown in the drawings and in picture 1 is a fairly good example of what I consider about the upper limits of the 'Midget RC' class. Construction is very simple and flying performance leaves little to be desired for beginner or expert..."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Also appeared in Ziac Yearbook 1951/52, see supplement file.

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.
