1/2A Mirage (oz2453)
About this Plan
Mirage 049. Control line aerobatic model. Flying Models August 1980. This is a smaller 32in version of the original larger Mirage (oz2345), for Cox .049 engine.
Quote: "This much requested 1/2A version of a popular Fying Models Stunt C/L design published one year ago flies as well as it's larger brother. Lightness is the key to a great 1/2A performer. By Lou Walgast.
The design preseneted here spans 32 inches - one of the largest 1/2A designs to date. For its size, a finished weight of 10 to 12 ounces is competitive. Four ounces of that total will be the engine, tank, wheels, spinner etc. The other 6 - 8 ounces is your basic airframe. I had no trouble at all keeping the unfinished airframe under six ounces and the finish under two.
Special care was taken in laying out the nose section to allow minimum problems to develop concerning tank hold-downs, as well as to provide easy access to all the other components. The tank is removable, as is the nose gear..."

* 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.
