About this Plan

Tiny single channel rudder only RC cabin model, with Cox TeeDee .010 power. The Pageboy is a small version of the Schoolboy, made as small as possible to prove a point about miniaturisation. A clipped wing version at 8in wingspan was successfully flown.

Update 06/06/2013: Replaced this plan with a clearer version, thanks to theshadow.

User comments

My Pageboy was not much of a success, too small and too heavy. My Cox 010 was way too much power for the model, even with the prop on backwards and running rich. I used a lighter radio than Ken did but mine was so twitchy it didn't last long. I built several of Ken's designs and they all flew well, but not this one. My favorite was the Roaring Twenty, a very similar model but twice the size.

Hola Mary and Steve. Another Ken Willard "great plane": PAGEBOY, ID: oz358 [more pics 003-009]. Electric version, powered by a AD-C5 micro outrunner (4.6 g and 3700Kv), 4 x 2, 5 prop, 6 Amp ESC and Lipo 2S 450 mAh. A very fun model, able to perform simple aerobatic figures possible with only two axes. Saludos from Spain.

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.
