About this Plan

Container Fli. RC sport model. Based around a modular container system.

Quote: "From Sweden comes this new dimension in R/C. The five performing functions shown are just a sample of what can be done. Use your imagination and create new ones to suit your needs.

I have always wondered, why just fly around there up in the sky? Can't we do something more with the R/C model? Nowadays most of our R/C equipment has plenty of functions but all of them are not in use. Some people are using retracts and flaps but nothing more. I would like to bring a new dimension to R/C flying such as dropping bombs, firing rockets, taking pictures (using an 8mm movie camera) dropping a parachute, towing sailplanes, etc.

But to find a model which provides all this was impossible. Therefore, I decided to build a model on which I can hook containers which contain the thing that I want, and are activated by standard connections, and with a towing-tower on the top of the wing. So the Container Fli was born.

The model is big, but not too heavy, and can carry a lot of weight. It would not win any beauty contest but it has a practical beauty, short take-off and landing, and can be flown from nearly any kind of surface. The model can also be flown by a novice, but a novice might have some problems in building it.

All measurements are in millimeters but to help you fellows. I have given the measurements in inches in parentheses. They are not always the exact measurements in millimeters but as close as possible, and with the small dimension that we build our models in, it should cause no problems, with the difference.

Construction. Fuselage: Cut out the two 3/32 in plywood sides simultaneously and the formers F5 and F8 from 3/16 plywood, as shown on the plan..."

Note this is a low resolution plan.

* 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.
