About this Plan

Bojo. Control line sport biplane model.

Quote: "HERE is Bojo the acrobatic bipe. A model that looks like a real plane and flies like a demon. It was designed expressly for stunt flying and simplicity of construction. If you want a model that has looks and good flying characteristics you'll find the Bojo bipe is what you are looking for.

The original model is powered by a Forster .29 engine. Most Class B engines can be used to fly this model. I believe a McCoy .29 glow plug operation would fly it to perfection. If a larger engine is to be used be sure to strengthen nose of ship. This plane handles very well and is a good trainer for beginners. The expert will find the Bojo a dream ship.

Start by cutting out lower fuselage side of 1/2in medium hard sheet balsa. Cut motor mount bulkheads making sure they will fit engine used. Bulkhead #2B is made from 1/8in plywood. Cement motor mount solidly and squarely in position. While this is drying cut remaining bulkheads as shown. Cement fuselage sides to motor mount bulkheads holding the fuselage up side down on flat surface. Place remaining bulkheads working towards tail end of fuselage. Make sure all joints are strongly cemented..."

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.
