About this Plan

Ruteress - Control line combat model. Swedish design.

Quote: - "Although fairly conventional in areas, to knowledgable eyes the contruction is anything but usual, the wing being based on a 1/16in sheet full depth spar and box leading edge. Giving extreme lightness, this kind of contruction, when carefully carried out, is deceptively strong; but probably not up to 'Dominator' or 'Warlord' standards. Using carefully selected materials the original models turned the scales at 12 - 13 oz all-up, which for a 2.5cc size model makes for the crisp performance delivered. "

* 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.
