About this Plan

Flying Aces Stick Gas Model. Free flight power model.

The Flying Aces Stick (oz225) was first published in the pages of Flying Aces, Sep 1936. This here is a later re-drawn plan at full size, with wingspan 60in, scaled and drawn by J Haggart.

Quote: "1936 Flying Aces Stick Gas Model. Original model coloured light blue & Orange. Fitted 'Baby Cyclone' motor. All wood balsa unless stated.

Notes: Balance model 1-1/2 in back from LE (by moving wing forward or aft) for initial test glides." On powered flight, should model turn steeply, correct by moving wing over to side requiring more lift. Move wing forward a little at a time until you get a smooth flat glide without any stalling tendency."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Saw this electric RC version at the local field. I don't know who built it (the pilot had bought it from someone else) but the craftsmanship was impeccable [main pic].

* 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.
