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

User commentsI built a 150% enlarged Redwing at 27in span with 3 channel RC and a little 9g brushless motor using a GWS 5x4.3 prop (bench test showed 3.3A and 23W) - she flew very nicely. There's a build thread with some pics at http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1497261 also a short video. AUW was 165g and that was with a fairly large 2S lipo in there.

Recently I built an enlarged Frog Redwing RC, span is now 980 mm, 38,5 inch. Here are some pictures, maybe interesting for OZ [more pics 005-010].

The Redwing [main pic, more pics 012,013] is finished in Sams Superlite coloured tissue, I hollowed the nose blocks out much more than was suggested on the plan and built up the tail surfaces in the hope of lowering the overall weight. I thought I’d used light wood too but the all up weight is still a fairly hefty 26.7g (0.94oz) without rubber. I’ll be happy if I can get thirty seconds out of it but I’m hoping for a bit more.

* 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.
