Baby Hawk (oz5430)
About this Plan
Baby Hawk. Free flight power model. This is a reduced size for .010 FF design, Bill Barr's Baby Hawk, MB issue 08-94.
Quote: "AUGUST THREE-VIEW: Last year, when we ran the MiniPower postal contest, 1st place winner Bill Barr was the only entrant who made the full complement of three maxes. He did it using his Baby Hawk, a tiny version of Jim Clem's Witch Hawk (oz4466). As you can see from the plan, it's the ultimate in simplicity.
The model is built just like a typical 1/2A free flight. It's important to build it as light as possible; the power of the Cox .010 is mpressive, but it still won't haul a 3-ounce airplane very high in 10 sec-onds. Strive for a model under 2 ounces.
This model is designed to fly to the right both under power and in the glide. Use right thrust and right stab tilt. You may need slight right rudder tab in case the model wants to straighten out at the end of the power run. If you have further questions, contact Bill Barr at 2000 Lark-spur Dr, Lexington, KY 40504."

* 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.
