About this Plan

Electra - Radio control cabin model, for 2.5cc motors.

Quote: - "I've noticed that we're still missing a few important models. Here's one. Built about a year ago and intended as an 'all weather' flier. Mine weighs half a pound more than Vic's original, so it's fairly fast but ultra stable. The PAW 19RC TBR starts in a couple of flicks and provides superb smooth power. A couple of hours of air time so far, and not a scratch. It's a superb aeroplane for beginners, at least as good as a J60 and quicker to build. As I have zero computer draughting skills, this is just my raw scan, at 600dpi. I hope you'll be able to get something reasonable."

Direct submission to Outerzone. Note this plan is scaled up from 1/6 size print which had hatched background, and is not easy to read.

Update 19/04/2017: Replaced the hogalised PDFvector plan with an updated, revised version, thanks to Al.

* 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.
