About this Plan

Divider (MkI and MkII) - RC sport stunt model.

Quote: "The Divider, as the name implies, divides the big airplanes from the small ones. This is a small sport-stunt ship using the miniature proportional equipment, and it is capable of doing the full stunt pattern. You have to see it fly to believe it ...The Divider has a 41-1/2in wing span and the wing area is about 349 sq in. The first model was built as a tail dragger, and the second has tri-gear, prop spinner, and a moulded canopy for those who like the modern look... " Hi Steve - Here is Lou Weihs' Divider from RCM magazine issue 12-74. Model # pl-581.

Some photos of my friend's Divider [more pics 004-006]. This is truly an outstanding sport flier. You don't hear much about it nowadays. I never considered building it until my friend asked for a 20 size sport plane recommendation. I had never seen one, nor even heard of anybody building it, but I thought the plan looked pretty good, so we tried it. It turns out that it is a very good design. My friend has tried the 25 FSR, 25 FP, and Enya 19 on it, and it always performs well. The more powerful engines provide a stronger takeoff, and the lighter engines provide better flight performance due to reduced weight.

* 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.
