About this Plan
Lady Bug. Radio control sports model. This file includes 2 versions of the same plan, the Lady Bug Rev B and Rev E. Differences include the wingspan, tail surface outlines, and uc gear.
Quote: That would be the Lady Bug Rev.B. 21 1/2" span. Rev.E has the 2 wing options. Rev.E has 22 1/2 and 18 1/2" span options.

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

User commentsFlying the Rev B version [see more pics 003,004] with a 250 electric, 1200 kv and a 7 x 3.8 prop, on 7.4 volts. Weight is 8 1/8 oz so weight:thrust is close to 1:1. She balances and flies best with the cg a 1/4 inch forward from what the plan shows.

Mary, Here are photos of my newest Lady Bug, enlarged from the 22" span of the plans to 36" [more pics 005-008]. Power is a 880kv electric 400 brushless motor on three cells and weight is 28 oz, a bit heavier than I expected, although the performance is completely adequate. Covering is nitrate dope and Polyspan with color from rattle cans. C/G has to be on or preferably ahead of the main spar and thus forward of what the plan shows. This agrees with my experience with the smaller Lady Bug. She flies best when the wind is calm. Keep up the good work.

Here are my latest builds from Outerzone sourced plans. Both came in under the stated weights in the plans and are covered with Easy Built Lite Tissue. The LadyBug is doped and the Stits Sky Baby has 15mil Doculam over the tissue. The LadyBug has flown and the SkyBaby is awaiting final touches.

* 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.
