User comments

It should be noted that a 4-cycle engine is the proper choice for this model. Properly fitted, this model should be added onto the must build list due to its incredible flying characteristics.

I agree with the above comments. The Whimpy is one of the best ever, especially when fitted with an OS 26 Surpass and a 10x4 APC propeller.

* 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.
