About this Plan

Doubloon by EB Jones - 1/2A power competion design.

Quote: - "Winner of the 1/2A Power class at the 1974 Nationals, ths 38in span straightforward design is ideal for high pewrformance 0.049 cu in glow motors... the idea was to have a reasonably sized model, climbing faily straight, with a good pull-out at the cut-off stage. The thin, flat section, low pylon and large fin appeared to give the required climb characteristics, while the auto-rudder meets the good pull-out requirements..."

* 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.
