About this Plan

Jitter Bug - free flight gas model.

Quote: - "Most of you model fans are desirios of building a contest model that will climb to a very great height for a given amount of motor run depending on contest rules. You will thrill at the steep spiral climb which this model will maneuver. At the top of the climb it will flatten out and glide for a long time, depending on air conditions. This model with its beautifully streamlined fuselage, painted in bright red and with its silver nose, makes a very striking appearance... "

* 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.
