About this Plan

Douglas A-26 Invader - RC scale twin. Sport scale warbird for two .40 - .50 2-stroke or .48 - .65 4-stroke engines.

Quote: - "I wanted to build a fairly large and simple twin engine scale plane for general weekend flying. I also tried to keep the cost down by designing it to use a pair of .40 sized engines. I did not go to any great length to keep the weight down as I built my A-26 and it came out at around 12lbs. Flight characteristics are good and show no bad habits."

Quote: - "Hello, here's the Twin Engine A-26 Invader from RCM 08/2004. The scan is not from me, is from my Friend Willies (Uncle Willies). Regards,"

User comments

I first built this model in 2009. After my first flight I wrote some comments [see supplementary file]. I'm currently re-building the model as because of an error on my part the first one finished up in pieces. In contrast to the first model, I'm using Century jets electric retracts. I'm using the same Saito motors but mounted in the 2s position. As well, I'm covering the model in 1/2 oz fibreglass cloth using Deluxe Products EZE Kote. I would strongly encourage anyone to have a go at this build. It's easy to build and easy to fly. Just pay attention to engine reliability.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
