About this Plan

Mandy. Free flight sports power model from Aeromodeller June 1964, by M Green.

Quote: "Mandy may not be curvaceous; but she's willing and obliges a patient modeller with ideal tuition into the arts of power flying. Special warp-free yet simple structure and down to earth trimming and building hints by Mike Green make Mandy a perfect sportster.

Specially commissioned by Aeromodeller from Britain's leading power contest flyer of 1963. 45 in span, for 1 - 1.5 cc. Mandy, by Mike Green.

THIS MODEL HAS been designed with the younger sports flyer in mind. It has not been the intention to break any records, but rather to provide an aeroplane of reasonable appearance, easy construction, which will give dependable performance aver a long period.

For the newcomer to the sport it must be stressed that patience in building and trimming pays off and can make the difference between failure and possession of a model which has its life measured in years. With this in mind let's run through the construction.

For the most part balsa is used, the vast bulk of which is 'medium' grade. Some tolerance is permissible but care is advised when choosing the wood.

Fuselage. We suggest tackling the bearers first. Either cut them from p]y, or use adequate sized square section hardwood - see the plan. Wrap tissue around the exhaust and air intake, and bolt the motor to the bearers. The whole assembly can then be fixed to the fuselage later..."

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.
