Hello,my first rc model aircraft was a deacon. 1976.was a wish come true,ever since I started building models age five (1965) all I ever wanted was a rc model plane. It was fitted with MacGregor single channel radio (second hand) and an Enya 09 engine - by the way why is the silencer on the opposite side to all of the other engines of that type? - anyway the day had come for its first flight, with out any sort of range test, the engine was started and the model was launched. After allowing it to climb fifty feet or so it was time to press the button! You guessed it nothing happened! With the fuel tank full it flew in a straight line never too be seen again. So after forty years that first rc flight it's still as clear as a bell. Have just bought a Enya 09 next job build a new Deacon. Second time lucky? Must say have built quite a few rc models since the first Deacon. Best regards Tony Wright

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
