Quote: "This rugged, simple design is a fast stable flier and maneuvers can be repeated time after time. Supersonic Slim, by Bill Winter.

For simple comstruction, durability and sheer flying fun Supersonic Slim is a tough guy to beat. Of all-balsa contruction on a larger scale than usual for this type of ship, it has put in more than a hundred winder-wound flights, with no damage beyond the inevitable nicks from picking fights with tall trees. Designed for straight flight and a good rate of speed, it is good for a cross-coutry dash of at least 1,000 feet and fday pof the week.

The original idea was for a high performance, all-sheet airplane with a realistic flight pattern. For us this meant a medium high flight (about 100 ft altitude) at good speed and in a straight line. However it can be adjusted by rudder for trun in small areas. Stability had be of a high order to get an arrowlike flight..."

* 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.
