About this Plan

Smoothie - Bob Palmer's famous control line stunt plane - from Air Trails.

Quote: - "One of the world's top-ranking stunt designers presents a fine fast model for .29 - .35 motors... Just as the name implies, Smoothie is a smooth flying contest stunt model designed to meet all the requirements for contest winning performance. Span is 51in; area 495 sq in minus flaps; length is 31in; the engine recommended is .29 to .35 displacement; weight 2lb 6oz; speed 65 to 70 mph..."

Update 22/03/2016: Have re-scaled this plan to correct wingspan of 51in (with inboard wing as specified on the plan 2in shorter than outboard) thanks to GeorgeAlbo.

Update 18/04/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy scanned from full size at 400 dpi, thanks to dfritzke.

Update 16/05/2017: added instructions, thanks to RonHopping.

* 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.
