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

User commentsI have built several planes from your plans collection, which I must say is an amazing achievement and a benefit for the future of modelling. Here are photos of the 56% KK Elmira, built from depron, brushless motor, 2x 3g servos, 7.4 v repurposed e-cigarette lipo cells approx 250mah. It is also shown with a 25% Elmira [more pics 003-005].

Re: Elmira R/C glider designed by Cliff Goater. His company, Saturn Models, also produced the Symphony R/C sailplane. I flew the prototype at the first World R/C gliding championships at RAF Halton.

It would be useful to know the full size plan sheet dimensions are.

Joe, see knowledgebase article 105 here: Checking the page size of a PDF plan

Quicker way is when you've opened the link and see the PDF, move mouse curser to bottom LH corner of plan and the frame size pops up. In this case 51 x 30 rounded up.

Yep. That's a handy shortcut too. Of course your mileage will vary depending on what software/plugin you use open PDF files, of course. And what kind of device/PC/MAC/mobile etc, you are using. But yes, for me, on PC with Reader DC, that works.

* 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.
