About this Plan

Doonie Glider. Simple chuck glider model.

Quote: "We are presenting a rather small glider with flight characteristics next door to amazing. Because of its rather small size it is not beyond the reach of the builder whose supply of balsa is getting low. When flown with a catapult, which is explained later in the text, the original Doonie reached an altitude of nearly a hundred feet and had an exceptionally slow, floating glide..." Hi Steve - Here is Alfred Cleave's Doonie Glider from Model Airplane News magazine issue 01-44.

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

* 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.
