About this Plan

Uplift - Low wing multi design.

Quote: - "Parallel chord wings are used for their simplicity and ease of duplication. Although tapered wings look nicer, at the moment they appear to have no particular advantage for multi-stunt flying and I have a wing jig for making 66in x 12in x 15 per cent wings. Conventional ailerons are used as I do not particularly like the action of strip ailerons, nor an I convinced that they are a lot easier to build than the type used here. The wing section started life as NACA 0015, but this presented difficulties in spinning due to excess stability, so a bit was carved off the template to make a shaper entry at the leading edge..."

Presented in part 1 of article from November 1964 Model Aircraft. Wing span 66in for a 49-61 engine.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

Hi Steve, I was reading the February, 1965 issue of RCM Magazine. In the Plans Service advertisement was an "Uplift" with the same designer, span, and power as listed here. So, I suspect this plan was sold in the USA through RCM Plans/Hobby House Service. There, the plan had the serial number 145. I will be searching for the plan here, in the USA; but, I thought to make a note here, for historical purposes.

* 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.
