About this Plan

Gulfhawk - Radio control scale model of the Grumman Gulfhawk as flown by Major Al Williams. For .61 power and proportional radio control systems.

Quote: "Al William's famous Gulfhawk, the Grumman G-22 has always been the apple of my eye. This chubby little red-orange bipe is a sight to behold in action. The lack of good dependable proportional equipment was the main reason I didn't venture into this project in years past - I'm not the type of guy that pays $500 or more only to watch a beautiful scale ship bite the dust! Then a few months ago I received my EK Logictrol 7 from Harvey Thomassian with the assurance that my rig was thoroughly flight tested, and that if I followed the charging instructions, no loss of signal or glitches would be experienced. Let me say here and now that I have never had a finer piece of equipment in my possession - I was off one and one-half turns on my receiver tuning slug and never lost signal for one moment! Need I say more? Here was the equipment for the Gulfhawk project! After installing the new gear into the Grumman's fat belly, getting all linkages, incidences, and thrust settings properly established, I proceeded to paint and put the final trim lines on the the pipe. I was fortunate in having one of the RC'ers from the WRAMS who actually worked on the G-22 help with these details. The day finally arrived for the Grum-man's first flight. It was the first Sunday of October a beautiful warm day with no wind to speak of, and a clear blue sky with just a few puffs of clouds here and there. I don't know how the wordgot around, but when I arrived at the field, there was a waiting crowd! If I didn't fly that day I think I would have been tarred and feathered..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
