About this Plan

Ebenezer. Simple profile all-sheet sports FF model. For small engines. Plan shows 2 versions, with alternative tail surfaces and landing gear. April 1958 Aeromodeller.

Quote: "EBENEZER an all-sheet balsa quickie for free flight with small engines by B.C. Striegler.

WITH THE WORST of the northern hemisphere winter behind us (we hope!) now is the time to start thinking of a new sport job to fill in time on the flying field. What better than this pee-wee solid sheet number that can be knocked out overnight from a few sheets of standard 3in wide balsa sheet?

Bert Striegler's prototypes seen above have a flight log which takes them back over three years of constant activity, amassing no less than 400 flights in the case of the 'German' version with the Fokker type tail. With tricycle or standard undercarriage, radial or beam mounted engine, this little 20in span bipe will surprise you for its performance in spite of the flat plate aerofoil.

Plans below are one-third full-size, simply multiply the various measured dimensions three times and mark out directly on to balsa, using the actual measurements quoted as a guide. There's no need to be fussy over being exact in shape, just as long as you get those wing and tail angles right..."

Here is a picture of my Ebenezer [model photo]. Cox Pee Wee .020 for power.

I have built a few of these Bipes in both versions...the German version sinks really fast which can be a benefit...the bigger surface one I have lost one. I like powering them with diesel...with about 4cc of fuel. The peewee version flew out of site before the engine quit. To hard to gauge the fuel in the tank!

* 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.
