About this Plan

Little Plank - Radio control flying wing sailplane.

Quote: - "The Little Plank is one of the most exciting and challenging sailplanes we have yet flown. Designed for the experienced flier, it is equally at home in thermals or on the slope. Optional pusher engine shown."

Update 15/03/2017: Have rescaled this one up to fullsize at just slightly over 56in, thanks to anon.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

When printed at full size the 6 inch scale bar only measures 5 3/4 inches and the overall span is 54in. I suggest a further enlargement of about 1.0435 is required to achieve a full scale plan.

* 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.
