About this Plan

Antoinette. Radio control scale model. Scale is 1/6.

Quote: "Big, graceful, and slow characterize this much-loved airplane from aviations early history. Model has 8-foot wings and weighs 9 pounds, yet flies realistically on only a .36 ...the Antoinette flew again in modern times when it was chosen, because of its unique appearance and size, as one of the airplanes in the film Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines. To us, it was the most graceful of the old machines, and the idea of an RC version took shape. The 2-in. scale model presented here is adapted from the film ship, since some points of the original left much to be desired with respect to modeling. To build the Antoinette for entry in AMA scale competition, some additional research is recommended ...some modifications had to be made to achieve a stable, structurally sound RC plane. The two major changes were a conventional airfoil and a more forward landing gear location. A small amount of lead (one pound) was added to locate the center of gravity at 33% of the chord. "

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

    ScaleType: This (oz5126) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
