About this Plan

Charger. Radio control sport/competition model for OS Max 15 power and single channel RC.

Quote: "A radio controlled, rudder-only airplane developed for sport or competition flying, the Charger is the end result of many months of building and flying R/C rudder craft. I feel that in the hands of the average flyer, it is capable of performing all the maneuvers required of 'rudder only' types. It will loop, roll, Cuban eight, do simplified proto take offs, touch and go.

The best part about the design is you don't have to be an expert to put this little craft through its paces. The Charger is a rugged plane that can take a spin-in without exploding. Its contest abilities are well proven - so build and trim it as the plans show and you are in for many hours of fun. I like to build the surfaces first so let's get started.

Pick your wood carefully with an eye to weight. Keep it light.

Horizontal stabilizer: Make two rib templates of aluminum. Stack fourteen pieces of medium balsa between templates then carve and sand to shape..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
