About this Plan

Estrellita - Low wing rubber sports model. Aeromodeller, January 1956.

Quote: - "Estrellita - a 30 inch low-wing that will bring back fond memories for pre-war fliers, and makes a fine sport model for small field flying... By George Woolls From Aero Modeller January 1956. This little low wing, was developed in an attempt to get regular 'fun flying' without too much cross country chasing. The comparatively low power, (half an ounce of rubber for an overall weight of two and a half ounces, and very modest by present day standards,) is however, sufficient to provide realistic take offs, fast climb, and regular flights of around the minute mark. Landings are a pleasure as they are 'wheely ones' with the model remaining right side up - given of course a reasonable surface. The youngsters who have never flown a low wing have a treat in store..."

* 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.
