I built the Zoot Suit as a three channel electric RC model. I really love its spindly old time looks! Even when properly balanced, it is prone to Dutch rolling - especially at higher throttle. The glide is beautiful, though. The polyhedral and tiny rudder mounted forward of the stabilizer are not the best combo for an RC model and should be revised for controlled flight.

Just added super pictures of the Zoot Suit John Dagg built from the Outerzone plans [more pics 003, 004].

I have built 4 Zoot Suits (free flight only) and other copies built and converted to r/c have not shown any Dutch roll tendencies. If you let the model fly "free flight" with minimum control inputs you will find the problem disappear.

* 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.
