About this Plan

Hot Canary - Free flight gas model, 34 inch beginners FF model for motors up to .87cc, from Aeromodeller September 1953.

Quote: - "When a model flies consistently and well in all waethers for eaighteen months, and still remains in flying trim, it obviously has something. Such a job is Hot Canary; the somewhat austere lines may not appeal to the aesthetic builder, but the all-round ruggedness and flyability are just what is required by the average knockabout club junior..."

* 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.
