About this Plan

Aeronca C-1 Scout - Stand off scale model for .19 to .29 power and radio control. Scale is 1/6.

Quote: - "A stand-off R/C oldie that really captures an age. An easy aircraft to build and mild mannered in flight with a .19 for power early 1931 the company felt there was a market for a faster more highly maneouveable C-2 type plane for air racing and air show aerobatics. The airframe was changed by reducing the wingspan from 36ft to to 29 ft 4in. Fuselage was beefed up by using heavier steel tubing, and a slightly larger engine was insdtalled. Advertised as the C-1 Scout, the first plane serial number X-1129 was completed March 1931, and performance was beyond expectation... "

* 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.
