About this Plan

Fuego 50. Jetex model.

Quote from hogal: "Fuego 50 is a Jetex 50 powered sports plane designed by G Blumenthal. The designer states that this design has to be built light to get optimum performance and that it is the culmination of approximately a dozen designs in the proceeding year. It certainly looks a handy craft, I wonder how many will get built when either Rapiers or Jetex become readily available again. Enjoy the design and if you decide to build from the plan please take care and measure twice before cutting." Quote from article text: - "Unusual features of this sleek looking model are the butterfly tail and neat unit housing under the wing. American style Jetex unit is explained by the fact that our contributor hails from the States. AN ALL-SHEET DESIGN FOR THE JETEX 50 UNIT BY G. J. BLUMENTHAL. SINCE my first Jetex job approximately a year ago, I have built about a dozen designs with varying degrees of success. I've tried big ones, small ones, bird wings, flying wings, conventional designs, etc. Finally, I believe I have reached a point where I know what is required in Jetex design. Because of the limited run on these small power plants, the plane must be fast in order to get any altitude. Therefore it must be small, and a small plane in order to have a good glide, must be light. These considerations brought about the design presented here. Reading the article on Jetex design in the January AEROMODELLER, I found that the force set-up in my ship compared very favourably with that advocated in the article. The plane climbs rapidly to a good height and has a slow flat glide. The full size parts drawings and the all sheet construction will afford fast building."

* 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.
