This is my first attempt at scratch building [see more pics 004, 005, 006]. I downloaded a plan from Outerzone, the Quaker Flash by Paul Karnow from Megow. 67", Motor 40 OS FS 11x5 Prop. The prop on the plane didn't work too well, so it was changed to 11x5. Must say the motor is way over-powered for this model, only flying it between 25 to 40% power. I really enjoy your site, thanks for the hard work in keeping the site running.

Try a 20-30 size 4 stroke, I have one with a Forster .29 ignition for SAM events and it goes up at a 45-60 degree angle till I cut the engine, a .19 2 stroke is more than enough for sport flying.

* 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.
