About this Plan

PK Apex Mk14 - free flight gas model for 0.75 to 1.5cc power. Plan says quote - suitable for Free flight, SC radio, PAA load or Clipper cargo events.

Update 11/01/2015: Added wing section drawing, thanks to Humphrey1957.

Quote: "Hi Steve. I had the original wing section. It is here somewhere rolled up with the plan. The rest I took straight from the plan. I scanned the originals and sent them to Dave Brown in Lithgow. I had him cut me several kits one of which was at 60%. It is getting a .25 Schlosser. All the laser cut parts I scanned See the 60% jpg file. The tail is just flat. No section."

Supplementary files

Wing section drawing, also scan of some 60% laser cut parts and colour logo.

User comments

Hi there at Outerzone. This year at Oily Hand Diesel Day, hosted by Cowra MAC here in NSW, Australia the 'Apex MK14' was the model of the meet. I have included pics here of my build of the model [model photo] and a group photo of the twenty two models that turned up for the concours judging and fly off [more pics 004]. Of course everyone downloaded their plan from Outerzone. I would add that the Apex is a well mannered and great flying model. There were lots of comments about how ugly it is. But everyone who built one got over that as soon as they flew it. All flew straight off the board with minimal adjustment or fettling. For more info on Oily Hand go to www.cowramac.asn.au.

I built the Apex 14 when I was 12 in 1963, at that time living in England. Powered by an ED 1cc diesel, on the tiniest amount of fuel it would fly for miles with me running behind it to see where it landed.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
