About this Plan
Revenger. RC Pattern plane for .61 power.
Quote: "Revenger is the newest and sleekest design to be offered to the modeler in years. One of the unique features of the Revenger is its laminar airfoil wing. The laminar airfoil provides the modeler with a wing that few model designers attempt to use. Literally years of testing and development has resulted in a design that will take a back seat to none.
As with any scratch-built airplane, one of the biggest tasks is preparing the parts for assembly. I have found that two sets of plans (one for templates and one for building) will save hours of work in the long run. I would suggest making templates from chrome-cote card stock which can be found at most of the large stationary supply stores.
Cut the parts from the drawing slightly oversize and spray with 3-M-77 adhesive spray and bond to card stock. When dry (just a few minutes), trim to final cut size. A parts list has been provided as an aid in preparing your parts for assembly. I have broken down the assembly into major components, ie fuselage, wing, empennage, etc. This will enable you to jump around during build up. Throughout build up, the writer will assume you are using templates.
Fuselage. Cut two matching sides from 3/16 x 4 x 48 in medium hard balsa, using the fuselage template as a guide. Be sure to cut the front edge (firewall) for 2 degrees down thrust. Measure back (from firewall end) 3/8 in and draw a line parallel to edge, cut two top stringers 1/4 x 1/2 in and glue to top of fuselage sides(s) using Wilhold Aliphatic Glue..."

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

User commentsAs the designer of the Revenger I wish to have you make a change to the plans. There was a CG change that did not get incorporated before the plans became available. Please make the correction before you [release] any more plans. The aft CG should be deleted. A new forward CG symbol should placed forward of the existing forward CG on the same line as the Number 2 bulkhead. The original forward CG now becomes the aft CG... Dick Russ, Designer of the Revenger.

Thanks. This is done now.

Just thought I would share the latest Revenger I finished [main pic, 003]. I have been flying the original for 42 years and still flying great but I felt it was time to retire it and build a new replacement. I did move the canopy back a little to make it more sheek. It does fly fantastic. I did set the CG at 5-¾ aft of forward bulkhead. I also changed the paint design to be a little more modern.

* 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.
