About this Plan

Sportsman. Control line sport model.

Quote:- "Here is a ship which is versatile enough for primary training with throttled engine, for team flying, perfectly suitable for sport flying and at the same time maneouverable enough to compete in stunt events. The Ohlsson 60 engine has become virtually the standard power plant for this job, although a Super Cyclone would likely still boost performance. The Sportsman can clip off 65mph, loop tightly on 52-1/2 foot lines and float in slowly for those soft three point landings which are so satisfying to the pilot..."

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.
