About this Plan
Chase C-122 Avitruc. Scale twin IC model for control line, of the military transport. Wasp .049 power shown. Hobby Helpers plan HH-255.
Direct submission to Outerzone. This plan is missing the tailplane layout.
Update 10/04/12: added a second lo-res page showing missing tailplane and formers.
Update 19/02/2018: Replaced this plan with a single page plan that is complete and shows all parts (inc tailplane) at 300 dpi, thanks to ratracer.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz2715) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chase_YC-122_Avitruc
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User commentsHere are some photos for the file [more pics 003-006]. I began this model in high school, 1959, with a classmate who had the plan. Because of the box-like fuselage, Joe built his R/C using a two tube radio available left over from his father's projects. The transmitter used a clockwise rotating control switch with neutral at 12 and 6, while right rudder was at three o'clock and left at nine. Therefore, if one had just used left rudder and needed it to turn left again, it was required to turn right before left . As the aircraft was rudder only and under-powered with two early cox Thimble drome engines, flights were entertaining and a challenge. One time it finally got some altitude and got in range of a radio controlled traffic light which tried to take over. Joe would frantically rotate the switch to make a turn and then the light would change. The plane was eventually freed from the traffic light, flown back and safely landed. This plan would still be a good R/C at double sized. As you can see, mine is control-line as per the plan, with two Cox Baby Bee engines - and still unfinished, interrupted by the Air Force, marriage, children and other projects. I hope to finish and fly it while I can still stand upright.

* 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.
