About this Plan
Minimoa. Scale free flight glider. German language plan.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz1748) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Göppingen Gö 3
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsI'm intrigued by the fact that this plan uses a convex aerofoil, but the KielKraft plan oz1033 uses an undercambered aerofoil. The latter would have been used by the full-size aircraft, so it's strange that a German model doesn't use it.

In reference to previous comment on airfoils: Actually, the airfoils on this plan oz1748 are very much truer to the original full scale than those on the oz1033 plan. The actual Minimoa reportedly used Gottingen 681 for the root and Gottingen 693 for the tip... neither of which has any "undercamber" at all - both have a straight line underside aft leading into an elevated leading edge region... quite similar to the very widely used NACA 2412 (except much thicker in the case of the Goe681... which is a 16% thick airfoil).

The enclosed image [more pics 006] contains Minimoa's airfoil specs and the plots of those airfoils in case you'd like to include them on the plans page for reference. The model's airfoils are a bit thinner than the (16% thickness!) root used in the original but they're really a fairly good approximation. Cheers!

* 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.
