About this Plan

Turbulent City 10. Sports radio control model for .09-.12 power.

Quote: "Have you ever sketched airplanes on the back of a placemat while relaxing in a restaurant? I had this O.S. 10 that was suddenly released from duty by a crash and there is nothing that pecipitates ideas like a loose engine.

One such idea was found its way onto a placemat was eventually enlarged to good thinking size and with a littlw work became the Turbulent City Ten. It was to be small enough to fit in a compact car without removing the wings or could be taken along to the field for a second plane.

It turned out to be a good flier and is fairly fast at full throttle, but handles well. You will find it exciting to fly and though it is not recommended as a first aileron model, if you are comfortabe with a .40 size sport plane you should have no trouble.

Wing. Since the wing is needed to fit the hatch/canopy assembly to the fuselage we will start with the wing. The spar holes in the ribs can best be made using a template. Formica works well as does thin aluminum. The 1/4 in spar holes can easily be cut out with a #11 X-Acto blade. As you cut out the ribs, allow about 1/32 excess of wood near the leading and trailing edges, for final sizing later. Stack the ribs on two short pieces of of spar material. This will align them for sanding..."

Update 09/01/2016: Rescaled this plan to correct full size at wingspan of 36-1/2in, thanks to anon.

Update 11/01/2016: Replaced this plan (again) with a better copy. This one is a 400dpi scan of the fullsize paper plan, thanks to Balsaworkbench.

* 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.
