About this Plan

Curtiss JN-4D Jenny - Large scale biplane model. Dick Hansen's Jenny from American Aircraft Modeler, issue 09-68. Wingspan 100in, for Enya 60 power.

Quote: "You will be surprised how much easier a large airplane is to fly and handle on rough ground... the Jenny is a fun airplane, not a super detailed ship to win contests with. Although she does have two trophies to date. It is not hard to build... wind penetration is good, she turns well on ailerons and flies a little faster than expected, probably due to the thin leading edge. Having a simple flat bottom airfoil creates much lift at slow airspeeds and much more lift at higher airspeeds. It should be flown with that in mind.
One drawback of large aircraft is the assembly and disassembly time at the airfield. This is why the wings are of one-piece consruction and the only functional flying wires are included..."

* 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.
