About this Plan

Vic Smeed Flipper 27. This 30in span biplane for 0.5 cc power F/F can easily be converted to an electric R/C park flyer. The original Flipper was a 1965 design with only a tiny 18in wingspan, rudder only RC, and was by all accounts very twitchy to fly. This is a later redesign of the plan, larger and with 3 channel modern RC.


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


User comments

Hi Steve, I enlarged the Flipper 27 to 800mm span, and built it as per the plan [see more pics 003]. It is a beautiful stable little bipe.

* 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.
