About this Plan

Tupolev ANT-25 - Tshkalov's Ant-25 RD - Semi scale R/C powered glider, for .09 power.

Quote: "A stand-off scale powered glider that was never really a glider but a ship designed to break distance records ...powered gliders, usually built as semi-scale ships, have distinct advantages for certain types of flying over other, more classic designs. Besides their scale appearance, which I find pleasng, they are easy and slow on take off as opsed to an unpowerd sailplane on a high start launch. You also don't need all of thet space... my model is not a scale flying aircraft and there are moderate adaptations on it. Elevatroor is enlarged and so are the wingtips. Even the undercarriage is specially arranged... "

Just to make sure it is clear... A model from the plan may well behave like a powered glider - but the "real" Tupolev ANT-25 was a long-range experimental aircraft that broke some distance records in mid-1930s. Wikipedia has an article with details.

* 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.
