Radio Queen (oz5471)
About this Plan
Radio Queen. Radio control model. Famously the first RC model to fly across the English Channnel in September 1954.
Quote: "Radio Queen. Original design by Lt Col LJ Taplin. Structural modifications by Pte Cook. Kit manufactured by Kandoo Products, 89 Spon End, Coventry.
Both old and modern construction is shown on the plan. Much of the lettering has been re-inked, some mistakes corrected and much of the lettering replaced (both by hand and typed). The wing panels have been squared up during the inking. Inking was done on an old plan and you may see a fuzzy line in some places as the new lines did not hide all of the old line. Where possible the original lines and lettering were retained. Jim Johnson (Skystone) 7/25/05."

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

User commentsThank you for re inking the Radio Queen plan and making it available for download. I have a problem understanding exactly how to fit the 1/4" x 1" and 1/4" x 1/2" cross braces between the triangular removable front screen sides. Is there any indication anywhere?

I’ve seen two versions of the RQ. One with an empennage with squared off tips and the other with rounded tips.

* 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.
