About this Plan

Rohma. Radio control cabin model. For 3.5cc power. Aeromodeller April 1954.

Quote: "TWO years continuous flying through all weathers has proved the 'Rohma' as a tough sport radio model of the first order. Rough landings in ploughed fields have been taken in its stride and a spiral dive into hard earth under full power did not incur even as much as a tear in the tissue covering. In the only contest entered, the Northern Heights Gala Spot landing Competition, it placed a good third under fairly windy and poor conditions. Using a 3.5 cc engine, it is fast, though lightly loaded (13 02. sq/ft) and will penetrate any moderately strong wind. Though fast, it is not in the ''guided missile" class, and is perfectly safe to fly even tor a beginner in Radio Control. It can be put in any position even near the deck with excellent recovery, especially if one assists by keying the transmitter at the right time. As a cyclist, Sid Miller had to consider the convenience of packing, so the model was constructed in units. Every part fits easily into a box 42in x 9in x 9in, including meter, fuel, repair requirements and all the other odds and ends..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
