User commentsThis was my very first RC model back in the sixties. I used a .19 OS glow engine, MRC three channel radio (no ailerons), doped and painted nylon tissue covering. Flights were done until fuel tank emptied and then dead stick landed because nobody around knew how to do a powered landing. Very good gliding flight characteristic model.

My first RC model airplane, no ailerons, no elevator, rudder only control and engine throttle. Very hard to land on the runway with no elevator.

* 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.
