User commentsSee my Cloud Tramp built from plans on your site [see more pics 003]. I made a couple of changes not shown on the plans, a simpler wing mount without rubber bands, and a dual bearing prop hanger so I could adjust the thrust line. The little red spout from a WD-40 can made a perfect bushing in the prop and also for the laminated balsa wheels. Two loops of 1/8" rubber was just about right for my 8" carved balsa prop. I included a free-wheeler prop shaft for a better glide. Mine had a natural right turn in the climb and I just went with it, but the glide opened up a bit with barely a little right turn. Stretch wound with a hand drill, I could pack in nearly 400 turns for a much longer flight than hand wound. I'm sure with a little more adjustment I can get even more performance from the 'ol Tramp. My yard isn't big enough to contain it so I have to drive to a bigger field. Lots of fun for very little effort....

* 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.
