About this Plan

Live Wire Champion. RC Trainer. Wingspan 55 in, wing area 595 sq in, 3 channel radio. For .15 to .35 engines.

Quote: "The popular 'Champion' is patterned after the Aeronca Champion, ever popular among America's pilots! You get the scale appearance plus the famous Live Wire design features that give fine wind penetration, extreme stability, excessive ruggedness and wonderful maneuverability!"

The Live Wire Champion firts appeared in 1954. This here is the later MKII version of the plan, marked as kit # 146, dated 2/81.

The main difference between the MkII and MkIII versions of the Live Wire Champion seems to be the fuselage width is narrower in the later model, reflecting the smaller sized R/C equipment becoming available.

Update 06/05/2014: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to JJ.


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
