This classic Bill Dean F/F sport model also makes a fine R/C electric. Mine in the photos [see more pics 003, 004] is the seventh Bandit I have built - first six were in the late 1950s and were all F/F of course. This one has a 150 watt out runner propped down to 120 watts, R/E/T control and weighs 16 ounces. It is a lively performer with a steep spiral climb at full throttle and a great glide.

Hello to you up there from down here. My aeromodelling began around 1952 when I lived in the UK. My first attempt, an Auster Arrow flying scale series from KeilKraft. I always longed for the day I could afford to buy the larger kits but only managed to build the Pirate using a second hand E D Baby purchased by mail order from Bud Morgan in Cardiff for 26/-. Your site has been a wonderful discovery for me and I thank you beyond measure for it. I am sending you this recently completed Bandit photo [more pics 005]. It is electric powered and covered in the old fashioned way with fabric and doped. I have used the iron on stuff but I still like the satisfaction of watching the material shrink and the drumskin texture when complete. Regards from New Zealand.

* 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.
