About this Plan

Little Bit - Tailless sport model for .10 power.

Quote: - "Hi Steve, Attached are scanned plan and article for Dereck Woodward’s ‘Little Bit’ simple tailless model as presented with the now defunct ‘Radio Modeller’ back in ‘91. The plan’s a bit low-res (the original had gone surprisingly brown and brittle, so I pinned it to the wall and shot it with the digital camera rather than bending and scanning) but I’ve cleaned it up as much as I can and it should be good enough to build from. This model’s sooo simple it always fascinated me (I believe Dereck did it in several sizes and If I come a cross them I’ll send them in too) so I hope it’ll be an interesting addition to your collection! Regards,"

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

All Dereck's models were simple to build and very much FUN models to fly. He was a good natured guy and entertaining to talk to. You really can't go wrong building this or any of the other sizes he did.

Hi Mary/Steve! I've attached a picture of the Little Bit I built from plans I downloaded from you last year [more pics 003]. I flew it today for the first time. It was a glorious 30 seconds! I have some further adjustments to make on it I think. The OS 10 is pretty heavy for this plane. It required 4oz of lead in the tail just to balance. End result was a rather piggish plane in the air. Still. Looks good sitting there :)

* 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.
