Quote: "...other plan is the Astro Bipe by Fred Dunn. Don't remember where I got it, very rare. Even his wife did not know he had even finished it. I offered to give her the scans, but she didn't want them."
Quote: "Fred Dunn's Astro-Bipe was another newcomer which shows great promise. Although too new to be what Fred wants in the way of a model, both Dunham and Bonner who have flown it says it's a sweet baby. Certainly the inverted spins, reverse spins and other stunts that Fred put the bird thru spoke for themselves..." (from the article: "America's First National Championship Air-Model Meet" in American Modeler, Nov 1959.)

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

* 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.
