About this Plan

Bell P-39 Airacobra - 42in control line stunt by Walton Pyron.

Replaced this plan with a much clearer version, thanks to theshadow. Quote: "also attached is a slightly different version of Walt Pyron's Acrobatic Airacobra which is already posted. This much cleaner plan is from American Modeler magazine issue 07-59."

Quote: "The Airacobra will fly as well as any stunt model out today. It is smooth, stable and will turn on a dime..."

Update 29/12/2016: Added a supplement alternate version of the same plan, by Uncle Willie (shows full wing layout), thanks to Bernd.

* 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.
