About this Plan

El Gringo - RC pattern model for .60 power.

Quote: - "Wanting stability in the wind, I figured that a high wing loading and rather long tail moment was needed. I also wanted my airplane to look a smuch like a real airplane as possible. I dont think that with proportional control, a full house stunt ship has to look like a model..." 68in span, 690 sq in area, for .60 power. Model # pl-436.

* 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.
