Cessna 180 (oz5693)
About this Plan
Cessna 180. Free flight scale model for .06 cu ins engines, by Karl-Heinz Denzin. Graupner kit # 4601, Graupner plan # 4600 [the numbering used here makes no sense to me at all...] The plan is printed over 2 sheets and also includes 3rd instructions sheet then some colour scanned decals.
Quote: "To obtain good flying characteristics, tail surfaces and dihedral had to be slightly larger than scale, all other dimensions have been kept as true to scale as possible. The inherent stabilty of the model compares well with that of the sports model 'Cadet' which is known to be pretty foolproof. Caused by the large fuselage cross section, the sinking speed is relatively high but on reasonably somooth flying fields, landings are always normal."

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

ScaleType: This (oz5693) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cessna_180
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Steve thanks again for a wonderful plan from KHD! The numbering reflects that at Graupner's the avid modeller could choose from a) the plan as such (3,80 DM) or b) the kit including plan, printwood, wheels etc. etc. for 24,10 DM

* 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.
