About this Plan
Aeroflyte Bambi. Australian free flight rubber sports model.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 03/07/2020: Rescaled this plan to correct fullsize at 24 in wingspan, thanks to Pete.
Note as pointed out by Pete this plan shares a surprising amount in common with the Keil Kraft Playboy (oz2035) design, although the Playboy is smaller at 20 in span.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsLooking at this plan, the similarity to the Keilkraft Playboy is astonishing. That suggests a project for the coming winter - build both of them and see how they compare, performance-wise.

I don't think the span of Bambi is 33 ins. Looking at the wood sizes on the plan it's more like 21 ins and very like the KK Playboy. Perhaps a Bill Dean design?

Thanks Pete. You're right. Just found a scanned advert showing the Bambi was sold as a 24 inch kit, thanks to the http://www.antiquemodeler.org/ website - which is difficult to link to in a useful way since it is perversely designed using some kind of steampunk 1990s tribute-style frameset layout. The file you want is in Newsletters section, the Geezer (SAM 270) 2013-09-10. Actually, here's a link to the page inside the frame, see if this works: http://www.antiquemodeler.org/sam_new...

* 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.
