Wayfarer - Svenson Wayfarer - Radio control sports biplane model. Kit # 30493.
Quote: "This is another plan I just used for building nice biplane. Even if this plans are for gas engine it is possible to make nice electric from it (this is what I did)."
Quote from Svenson 1973 Catalogue: - "One of the finest bipes you'll ever fly, the WAYFARER which first appeared in the Feb 72 issue of the American RC Modeler magazine, now comes as a SVENSON kit with the full endorsement of its author Don DEWEY, Editor of RCM. The WAYFARER will perform all the maneouvres in a realistic manner and has outstanding slow-speed characteristics. It is extremely easy to fly, and anyone with a few hours of proportional time on an intermediate trainer will have no difficulty in handling the WAYFARER. It can be slowed down to a virtual walk for a landing, flies at almost scale-like speeds with a .40 and is quite responsive to controls. Wing area abt 800 sq.in. Span 52in (both wings). Length 43in. Weight (with RC) abt 5-5 1/2 lbs. Engines .40 to .60. The kit is very complete and contains all the necessary..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
