About this Plan

Cosmic Coyote. Radio control advanced sport model, for .40 - .45 power. Design uses a foam wing.

Quote: "The Cosmic Coyote is a sport pattern aircraft with a racey look. But don't let the sleek Formula One Racer's appearance fool you, for underneath this streamlined cosmetic veneer lies a typical sport aircraft, in regard to flight characteristics. The Cosmic Coyote is designed to be powered by engines of .40-.45 cubic inches of displacement. A conventional .40 will haul it around the sky in fine style, while the installation of a more powerful Schnuerle type engine will produce a real swift and nimble "hot dogger."

Being an avid Formula One flier, I have long yearned to build a sport aircraft
with a 'racer' look. I think that the Cosmic Coyote, with its cheek cowls, wheel pants, and clean lines accomplishes that goal. The basic airframe is, however, pure Sunday Flier. The Cosmic Coyote is not intended as a beginner's or advanced beginner's project. It is, however, well within the capabilities of any RC'er who has had a reasonable amount of four control function building and flying experience.

If you're tired of the usual box fuselage, constant chord wing, sport designs or the sport pattern aircraft that fly fine but don't resemble any known full size aircraft, then the Cosmic Coyote should be of interest to you.

Conventional construction methods and techniques are employed and all pans and materials are readily available, or can be fabricated. The cheek cowls, on the Cosmic Coyote shown in this article, were scavenged from 'deceased' Formula One aircraft, that the ground leaped up and grabbed. If you know a fellow RC'er who flys Formula One, it's a good bet that he will have several of these cowls in his can't throw it out/may need it some day junk box. The existing openings in these old cheek cowls can easily be reshaped to suit your needs..."

* 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.
