About this Plan

Graupner Dandy - Towline glider model. Graupner Quickie-Kit no. 4227. The manual points out this FF model was also suitable for 2channel RC, and there was also a separate power pod kit available.

Update 24/05/2016: added instructions for Graupner Pylon engine mount for Filou/Jolly/Dandy gliders.
"Found this engine pylon for 3 German Graupner gliders. Some one out there might want to replicate this original for his glider. It's for the cox 0,49 baby bee engine. The printed plywood is 1,5 mm, the printed balsa 4 mm, the aluminium plate 1 mm."

Hi Steve and Mary, With the plan of OUTERZONE, I have built the DANDY [see more pics 005]. In 1968 I was 15 years old, had no money for this plane. The model weighs more than 400 grams lighter than the original in 1968. That's very good because in our country, Belgium, little thermals at low altitude.

In the past year I have scratch built many models from plans on your website. See Graupner Dandy photos attached [more pics 006-008]. Canopy is a recycled water bottle.

* 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.
