Thanks for publishing my picture. As you can see I have converted my Contestor to electric power and rudder only RC, perfect for windless summer evenings.

Hi Steve and Mary, Once again Outerzone has saved the day! This latest build started off as a replikit conversion/ restoration of a Keil Kraft Competitor [pics 008-010]. Your website provided a really helpful guide in rebuilding this including the detail for the removable undercarriage. All up weight excluding battery is 285 grams. Power plant is a BR2403 low profile brushless motor paired to a 30A ESC. The prop is a 10 by 4.7 slow fly an servos are 5g digital servos from 4-max (4M-045-DH). The battery bay is right under the C of G so I will experiment with both 2S1000maH and some slightly beefier 3S batteries. Thanks again for an excellent resource. Kind Regards,

Dear Sir/Madam, please find the attached photograph of my Kiel Kraft Contester I made during the shutdown [more pics 007]. It was made from a 'Vintage model replikit but it has been converted to Electric flight and three channel RC. Covered with Litespan and home made decals.

Hi Mary! Here are some pics [011, 012] of my Keil Kraft Contestor 1947 . It's converted to RC and electric power. Weight is like a "wake" with rubberstrings, 244 grams. Quite new and not been in the air yet. Best wishes from Sweden,

* 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.
