About this Plan

High Diver - radio control stunt model. April 1954 MAN.

Quote: - "After deBolt's experiments with the full symmetrical airfoil and short coupling, a la the U-control stunt, the High Diver was begun as a more moderate experiment, using convex undercamber (NACA 2412 airfoil) in combination with both rudder and elevator. Not only did results warrant this plan, but a number of interesting possibilities were revealed. The elimination of ballooning is perhaps the most important..."

* 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.
