About this Plan

Pacemaker. Control line class A team racer. Gull winged design. April 1953 Aeromodeller.

Quote: "Here's an out of the rut team racer with a high contest record, both for appearance and performance. Its Gullwing configuration and trousered undercarriage are departures from the normal team racer design which we welcome as a considerable improvement in realism. As for performance, the top registered speed of Pacemaker is 82 mph, using an ED 246. This has steadily been speeded up from its original version which started life with a speed of 68 mph. In exhibitions, the prototype has taken first places at the Bolton and Southport Exhibitions, plus the Championship Trophy at the latter show. It also gained second place at the 1952 Yorkshire Evening News Concours d'Elegance. Though designed for the ED 246 it is easily adapted to any of the 2.5 cc engines, and if radial fitting is desired, an additional ply bulkhead can be fitted over shortened engine bearers..."

* 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.
