Avro G (oz2802)
About this Plan
Avro G. Scale rubber model enclosed biplane.
Quote: "Avro G of 1912. A 15-1/2 inch wingspan rubber powered indoor biplane flier. Designed for Golden Wings Club by WC Hannan, who explains indoor scale competitions.
Has radio control depressed you? Control-line got you going around in circles? Getting too old to tow gliders? Chasing free flight models a pain? Can't spend the time needed for free flight scale? But still like aircraft that look like aircraft? You need INDOOR FLYING SCALE!
That is the solution offered by Harold (Bill) Warner, organiser of the indoor flying scale meetings being held regularly at the Sepulveda California Junior High School in the USA.
Historically, indoor scale has been with us for a long time, probably for about as long as aircraft of the man-carrying variety have been around. Very early issues of 'Flight' show examples of Bleriots, Antoinettes, and the like, which were flown indoors. Even the tiny paper gliders of that era sometimes approximated the general outlines of specific flying machines.
More recently, round-the-pole flying scale has held the interest of a fairly sizeable group of modellers, who appreciated the small flying site requirements coupled with protection from the elements.
In the Twenties and Thirties, a few indoor flying scale models were published in the yarious magazines, but evidently, the type was overshadowed by the 'super-light' microfilm competition aeroplanes, and remained essentially a novelty, with few dedicated adherents... ."

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 (oz2802) 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/Avro_Type_G
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.

* 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.
