About this Plan

Gee Bee Zeta - Scale model for RC for .60 power. Scale is 1/5.

Quote: - "A sport scale model from a famous racing heritage ...The Zeta was such a beautiful aircraft that I could not resist doing a model of it. It had excellent proportions for amodel and, since it had been very aerobatic, it seemed a good bet that the model would also inherit its fine flying characteristics. With the help of Pete Miller and Bob Granville, I obtained a fine collection of photos of the Zeta. With all this documentation, I was able to do a very accurate rendition of the Zeta ...the model is not difficult to build and everything is pretty normal. The landing gear is a little different from most aircraft as the main landing gear struts emerge from the fuselage centerline with an outboard shock strut ...wing struts were attached to the windshield bow, which gave a lot of strength to the real craft...."

* 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.
