Wanderer 72 - Radio control soarer. For 2 channel RC. Wing area 553 sqin, Weight with radio 25oz.
Quote: "Hi, Steve. Please find attached the plan for the Wanderer sailplane. This is the original, 72in version designed by Mark Smith and kitted by Marks' Models in the mid-1970s. No rib templates shown for the tapered portion of the wings, but any capable scratch builder will figure things out. Back in 'the day' one could get into R/C soaring for less than $100, with a Wanderer kit and a cheap two-channel radio. Very easy to build and repair, the Wanderer probably got more people into soaring back then than any other design."
Direct submission to Outerzone.

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.
