Thank you for a treasure trove collection of free model plans. I had a KK Ajax kit when I was a kid. Never got around to building it and finally it was lost to time somewhere along. Thanks to Peter for rendering the Achilles which reminds me of the Ajax. It is built strictly to plan [model photo & more pics 003-010] other than substituting a Sunnysky Angel 2212 800kv motor for the Mills . I have also added a small elevator on one side. It hasn't flown yet but feels very light and the thrust appears way too much. I like the 11 5 prop as it reminds me of the rubber model. Thanks again to you and Peter for making it all possible. From Peshawar.

I flew the Achilles last Sunday. It flew off the drawing board as aeromodellers say. No trimming needed at all. This motor is well matched to the airframe. The elevator works too. Thanks for the plan.

Another update after some more flying. The elevator seems inadequate for a gentle landing, although I would call it acceptable for a free flight model so I wouldn't hesitate to add the second half. I am increasing battery size from 800 to 1000mah 2Sas I am getting only 5 minutes air time. All in all a rewarding effort.

* 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.
