Added pic of his nicely finished Spartan model [see more pics 003], thanks to Sundancer.

By all accounts Henry Austwick's prototype Spartan was, for a F/F cabin model, quite a "hot" performer, so I guess my electric R/C version performs in an authentic manner! My model in the photos [see more pics 003, 006, 007] is now nine years old and was built from a replica "John Venti Classic" kit which had been stashed away for years. It was the second model I built after moving to France and, as I didn't have a workshop at that time it was built on the dining room table, so I appreciated the precisely cut parts. I probably erred on the side of overkill in the power department, as at full throttle the model is off the ground in about six feet and will hold an 80 degree climb effortlessly for as long as I dare to as demonstrated in the flying photograph taken just as it lifts off! Specification of my electric version: Weight 40 ounces, wing loading 12.5 oz/sq. ft. Motor Turnigy 3632-1200 300 watt. Prop APC-E 10 x 5, battery 3S 2200. Full throttle watts 230 at 20.6 amps gives VERY rapid 80 degree climb. Half throttle watts 80 at 6.7 amps gives lively level cruise. Maximum watts/pound - 92.

* 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.
