About this Plan

Waco Taperwing. Control line scale model. For K & B 29 power.

Quote: "A grand old bipe, favourite of many a famous stunt pilot, returns as a slick control line flying scale powered with .29 to .32 engines.

Even if you can't remember the good old days, you can see what a fine model this Waco is for stunting or for real detailed scale flying. With no apparent dihedral, an almost-symmetrical airfoil, and with landing gear well forward, the WTW makes an excellent subject for U/C work. The Taper Wing, with its generally clean shape and efficient tapered wings, was great improvement overits predecessor, the Waco 10.

Two models made by the author logged more than 150 flights, with one model taking stunt and scale honors in the same contest. The hot rock stunters can go easy on the super-details for a lighter, nore maneuverable ship..."

* 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.
