About this Plan

Elanic. Radio control sport model, for .61 power.

Quote: "With a big 75in wingspan and a good .61 for power, this slick sport flier is sure to please.

Webster's Dictionary defines the stem of the word 'elan' as eagerness for action: the suffix 'ic' as an adjective denoting the nature of the noun. Elanic was designed and built with the explicit desire to have an aircraft that would perform according to its namesake.

The self aligning method of fuselage construction will assure a ssquare fuselage and will provide accurate centering of the vertical fin, as well as locating the wing to its specified ange of incidence.

Contruction. Wing. Note the wing is built upside down. The top of the wing is straight, and built flat against the work surface. Dihedral will be present only in the bottom of the wing.

Cut out rib pattern block where shown by dotted lines. Coat a sheet of 3/32 x 4 x 48 in hard balsa with Elmer's rubber glue. Glue pattern block to this balsa sheet..."

* 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.
