About this Plan

Alexander Flyabout - Radio control stand-off scale model. For .09 - .15 power. Scale is 1/8.

Quote: - "This model is in the stand-off scale category and is scaled at 1-1/2in equals 1ft. This resulted in a model of 56-3/4in span, and needs no more than a .15 for power. In my research on the Flyabout I used a 3-view drawing that appeared in a Nov 1931 issue of Aero Digest and also referred to photo the company used in their advertisemnets during the period. The model is not difficult to build..."

* 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.
