About this Plan

Blizzard. Electric Free Flight Power model.

Quote: "Hi Steve; Your Outerzone site is expanding enormously and is creating an archive of plans even more impressive than what Frank Zaic did years ago in his yearbooks. I corresponded with Frank over a few years...

I have fallen in love with that new E36 Electric Free Flight Power class, which has as its main advantage the fact that rules are kept to a minimum. I decided to base my design in the Hi-Tee, so I used the Hi-Tee (oz1781) planform, with a little sweep on the tips as a base. then I used the Executioner (oz1774) triangular fuselage and rib structure. The result is the Blizzard, a very light (125.4 gm) model with warp resistant wing and tail. I had some short run tests a week ago and this past weekend was able to get it going on a full 15 second run. I was very impressed with it. It has a 250 watts/lb output. I'm sending you the plans, but am not sure if it is vintage enough to be included.

There is a thread on the Blizzard on the HipPocket Forum in Electric Power, see http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_forum/index.php?topic=13775.0."

User comments

I have build 2 Blizzards and can only say that the design is top-performing with newer 2205 motors and built to plan in safe trim. Competing mine has never placed me less than second in national and european contests and won a few.

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.
