About this Plan

Mach None - Radio control sports model. For 2/3 channel RC and Cox Tee Dee .049-.051 power. This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

Quote: - "Before beginning construction let's analyze a few things about the Mach None. First, if you're a novice without much flying experience, put the kit on the shelf and wait until you've gained enough flying expertise that you feel you can handle a high performance airplane. Just because this airplane is powered by an .049 does not mean that it's a trainer for the beginner - the Mach None is truly a performance plane with the neutral stability, axial roll characteristics, smooth elevator response, high speed, and solid tracking of modern competition aircraft. A word of caution for those of you who believe that 'more is always better' and are already making plans to put a .10 or .15 engine in the Mach None to 'improve' its performance - DONT! First fly it as designed and discover for yourself what this package can do. Then if you insist on 'moving up' be prepared for a disappointment. It has been done with similar types of planes and a Max .10 produces little improvement while increasing all up weight considerably. A Max .15 has also been flown and at this point all resemblance to 'flying' ends and 'rocketry' begins..."

Here is a picture of my old Mach None, built from the Ace kit [more pics 003]. Cannon 3 radio using 2 servos. That is my brother-in-law and my sister in the picture, circa 1978?

* 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.
