About this Plan
Quaker. Radio control cabin power model, originally a FF design from 1936. The legend on the plan says:
"The Quaker from 1936. Old-timer free flight for R/C or F/F flying. Developed by Dick Mathis from a 1936 design by Paul Karnow, originally kitted as the Megows Gas Model (oz12082). Conforms to SAM rules for F/F & R/C contests. Can be powered by .29-.45 size motors (.45-.60 preferred). Suited to 2 or 3 channel R/C installations (RET). Manufactured in Lone Oak Texas by Dick Mathis Design Group."
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Dick Mathis' Quaker, circa 1975. This is a full size plan. This plan needed much tape repair and heavy ironing prior to a large format scan. A good dose of gentle digital cleaning followed."
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsNot really a correction, but just be aware that there are no outlines for the wing tip ribs W2 through W4. You'll have to "wing it".

Hi- Attached some photos of my little Quaker built from your plans, scaled to give me a 44" wingspan [model photo & more pics 004]. Covered in Solite 'antique' with black vinyl trim. Regards and thanks for a superb site!

* 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.
