Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsHi Mary/Steve. Just finishing this Hearns Hobbies Sportster 50" for brushless electric 3 ch radio [see more pics 003, 004]. nice model to build, the plan mentions using an ED racer 2.46 diesel which seems odd, way too powerful for a 50 " wing span model as this. a mills 1.3 or other 1,5 cc diesel would be fine for free flight or r.c. or go electric as I did.

Hi - here are a few photos of my new Hearns Hobbies Sportster 50, build from the Outerzone plan [more pics 008-010]. A slightly larger version now 55", an OS 15 engine and normal 3 channel radio. It flies just amazing, very slow and stable. My old one - its photo is also on this site [more pics 003-005] - was lost last year around this time while flying in France in the Ardenne near Revin. If any one has found it please let me know. It flew so well, that's why I made a new one. Now all red, it could do with some cool stickers - perhaps make some Outerzone stickers ?

Thank you for the lovely photos. The Outerzone stickers are a great idea! We'll look into it ...

* 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.
