About this Plan

Piranha - 74 in span RC flying boat by Don McGovern.

Quote: - "The Piranha design spans just about 74inches, requires rudder, elevator and engine speed control. Originally laid out for Citizen-Ship analog proportional equipment, a last minute switch to the new digital proportioal equipment was made. The design does not need aileron control as it was not primarily designed for stunt pattern flying, but those who wish to modify it for ailerons or other control functions will find the aircraft large enough to take the installation necessary..."

Update 05/01/2017: added (2 part) article from Flying Models Dec 1966 & Jan 1967, thanks to dplumpe.

* 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.
