Fairchild PT-19 (oz327)
About this Plan
Fairchild PT-19. 72 in span gas RC by Chuck Hollinger from Aug 1956 Air Trails.
Quote: "All this beauty and performance too. The designer of the now famous R/C Piper Cub J-3 (oz256) went back to his drafting board and produced the best-looking low-wing model we've ever seen. With more than 75 flight to her credit, she's already racked up one spectacular win - first place at the big Northwest Meet in multi-control event. All flight have been rise-off-ground variety..."
Update 22/09/2013: Have re-sized this plan up to the correct scale at 72in wingspan thanks to DavidK. Also have split it into 2 sheets now for easier printing.
Note: See also the Jetco version of this same Chuck Hollinger design Fairchild PT-19 (oz5052) for a possibly more detailed plan, good quality scan too.
Update 24/01/2017: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, also added article pages, thanks to Bernd57.
Supplementary file notes
Previous scan version.
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz327) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairchild_PT-19
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.
Do you have a photo you'd like to submit for this page? Then email email@example.com
User commentsPrevious version of plan was (I think) drawn at 280dpi but the pdf display was showing at 900dpi.

Hello Mary and Steve, this is my brushless version of the PT 19 from Chuck [pics 010-013]. See video of the maiden flight at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkdkK6YBZ.... Also a few photos of the build. I scored a set of decals from eBay of an original Jetco. I was the only bidder imagine that! So I didn't destroy the originals. I had them printed at the OfficeMax the only paper but a clear coated him and glued them would spray glue on the backside and applied very pleased with the outcome.
Hope all is well with this covert stuff and the best to you,

* 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.
