About this Plan

President - Free flight cabin model.

Quote: - "In keeping with the present trend toward power models for the small diesels and gloplug engines, Mr. Hatfull's handy-size cabin monoplane, combines the stable layout with clean lines. Elliptical flying surfaces and streamlined fuselage give the President contest model appearance. However, the construction is as simple as could be desired, the good lines being obtained without any structural complications. Although the original model was powered with a .87 Amco diesel, other suitable motors would be the Mills .75, ED Bee, Allbon Arrow and Frog 100. Slight modifications to the engine bearers and housing would be necessary according to the motor used, and it should be remembered that, in the case of the Frog 100, the mounting is radial. There would be some variation in the performance of the model in relation to the motor used, and the differences in motor weights would have to be taken into consideration in relation to the CG position..."

I built the President, with my father's help, when I was about 13! We got 3 flights then it flew away, never to be seen again! This fate was normal then, we just built another one!

* 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.
