About this Plan
DAD. Durée Altitude Distance. Free flight gas model.
Quote: "Hi Steve, Here is the French DAD airplane plan. DAD means 'Durée Altitude Distance' ie 'Duration Altitude Distance'. The 16th of June 1945 this plane broke the three French records in one flight, altogether with the world altitude record. The DAD was designed by Jean Guillemard. The plane has been build in large numbers in France: easy to build, attractive, easy to tune and reliable in performance. There exist four DAD versions, and three plans. This plan dates back to 1945. In JMP_blackfoot opinion, the ancestor of the DAD is the J.R.6, certainly the initial of Jean and Robert, the Guillemard brothers. Robert Guillemard died in 1945 while flying his Thunderbolt P-47. It is JMP_blackfoot who has put his scanned plan online on the French Retroplane forum. I and Olaf Joest from Germany have cleaned it. Note: the above comments are from JMP_blackfoot. Regards,"

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

User commentsBonjour, I built this model and am satisfied with it, it flies very well with an OS Max 15 FP, I use standard 5% Nitro fuel, and as a radio a Futaba FF6.
Bons vols à tous...

* 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.
