About this Plan

Witch Hawk - 1/2A contest free flight model.

Quote: - "The small 1/2A Witch Hawk (237 square inches of wing area) was designed for the specific purpose of achieving a glide comparable to the larger 1/2A contest ships. This quality, combined with a hot climb, has produced a potent contest machine..."

Hi Mary, Steve. I was looking at the article for Jim Clem's Witch Hawk and noticed that page 3 is missing. So, I scanned it in and it is attached. It contains pretty important trimming info for anyone building this model. I have built several, both this size and the 500 version. The Witch Hawk 500 is the model for the One Design event at the 2017 U.S. Nationals.

* 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.
