About this Plan

Jerseyette. Parasol gas model. Can be flown as free flight or Control line.

Quote: "ONE of the most inventive model builders in the East, Frank Ehling of Jersey City, NJ, comes up with this specially designed diesel or glow plug powered Class A or B free-flight or control-line 'goat' model which has been developed for the beginning gas modeler or club novice.

To assist the less experienced flyer, Air Trails makes available full size plans for the Jerseyette. Information on obtaining these is to be found on page 96. With the full size drawings are included both floats and skiis. The Jerseyette has been flown off land, water and snow with equally good performance.

It would be hard to devise a more conventional type of aircraft model than the one presented here. Designer Ehling has worked to keep construction as simple as possible. He does not claim any world-shattering records for the Jerseyette. It is an easy model to build and fly, and - important - an easy model to adjust.

A variety of power plants may be utilized in the model. Any Class A or Class B motor can be chosen. For powering by engines under .20 cu in the designer recommends the model be built as light as possible without sacrificing strength. For Class B engines harder woods may be used throughout.

Fuselage is typical box-type construction with addition of rounded formers on top. Formers 2 through 5 are 1/4 in sheet stock; 6 through 10 are 1/16 thick. Pine struts are used to hold wing to fuselage..."

Update 23/03/12: Added a better quality scan of this plan, by theshadow.

Update 11/10/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy (also now includes parts and drawings on sheet 2 for both skis and floats) thanks to dfritzke.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
