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

User commentsHi, Steve. Back in 1986, I built one of these from the kit and powered it with an OS .25FSR. The kit quality was typical of the Japanese kits of the time, i.e., phenomenal, with excellent wood and crisp die-cut pieces. Mine was a complete can of worms on the ground, and the lack of a steerable tailwheel only made matters worse. Once in the air, it was a very lively performer, but I had my hands full when it was on the ground, even on grass runways. I would suggest moving the main landing gear back, so that it's barely forward of the wing's leading edge, and incorporating a steerable tailwheel. Apart from these improvements, I wouldn't change a thing. It's just a great small-field model. Regards,

Noticed there wasn't a pic for the RPM Barnstormer. Here are some ooold pics of the one I built in the mid '80s [more pics 003, 004]. Absolutely one of the best flying machines I've ever had the pleasure to fly. I will be building one for floats soon!

Hi Steve, Great website, thanks! Here are a couple of pictures of my 25L [model pic and 005, 006]. I built it from a kit about 10 years ago. It was an excellent kit and fun to build. It is also a great flying 4 channel model.

Hello, what dimensions should that plane have for an OS 10 engine?

* 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.
