Jr Falcon (oz2191)
About this Plan
Junior Falcon. Radio control gas trainer model, for single channel RC and .049 engines. Cox Golden Bee shown.
Update 19/02/2019: Replaced this plan with a revised version, thanks to Gene.
Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary, When Dave Fritzke first posted my drawing for the Jr Falcon, we were trying to make the plans for this great design available to everyone and hopefully not infringe upon copyrights. Back in 2005 the only way to have this was to have an original kit plan. We felt a tiled PDF file was the way to go. I chose to redesign the wing based on my experience with a Goldberg wing. Hopefully a wing redesign would not infringe and felt that It needed to be stronger than the original so I chose an I beam for the spar. Also added all of the ribs required to build the stabilizer.
Fast forward to the present. The drawing is now all one sheet. I never showed on the original release how to achieve the 6° angle required on W1 and this has bothered me lately. That is the main reason for this revision. Obviously, this is not the original and therefore not an eligible drawing per the Vintage Radio Control Society rules. What I would like is for this drawing to replace the current one posted at your excellent site. Gene"

Previous scan version.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsSteve: I downloaded and built this plan last spring from your site and the local Kinko's where I had it printed did have an issue the first go around with getting the scale correct; but the clerk acknowledged it was her problem and got me a first class full size plan. The build was the first I've done in near 35 years but patience outlived the lack of tools and accessories. The finished project is reasonably good looking equipped with a brushless setup at under 16 ounces without the battery. Wingspan 37" 7" chord 259 sq in wing area = 1.7986 sq ft. Total flight weight with large battery 20.25 oz. 2827 Motor. I just added a few ounces to the airframe with the addition old school wire of tricycle landing gear. Thank you for your devotion to the hobby, my regards from sunny Florida, USA.

Happy Anniversary! Greetings from Argentina. My first photos are of the model Falcon Jr and Mauricio (that's me) :) [more pics 006, 007].

I hope Andy Coutts sees this. I am very impressed with his covering job on his Junior Falcon. It looks like a tissue or silk covering. I am curious to find out more about this model's covering and, since he's using a Cox Golden Bee, I am also curious about his fuel proofing. I ask because I am almost at the covering stage of a 1/2a Q-Tee designed by Lee Renaud and, since this is my first glow fuel powered model, I am gathering information about what works and what doesn't.

The Jnr Falcon is just covered in tissue and doped as are all my models. None of them are fuel proofed as I have no intention of flying them under power. I trim them out for glider flight and photographs then hang them up and move on to the next project. In the past I have used catalyzed wood lacquer and clear Glatex 8 as a fuel proofers, not sure if Humbrol clear varnish would also do the job.

Hey thank you for the plan. I built this one in a couple months. 100 watt electric. I have included a couple photos [more pics 008, 009].

Jr Falcon [more pics 010]. Wood from the local DIY. Powered by an OS 2.5 cc, V-position halved for ailerons. Flies like the devil. Regards,

* 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.
