About this Plan
Aerotique. Sport model for .25 - .35 power and radio control.
Quote: "If old airplanes excite you, then this Aerotique should be your airplane. It's aerobatic and can be set up for slow and easy flying or for the hotdog pilot.
Aerotique is a continuation of my design efforts to capture that special thrill of aviation when it was in its infancy. Let's face it, old airplanes exciye me. Although not a scale airplane, the Aerotique look old, flies slow and easy, and attracts lots of attention. Landing gear geometry is such that take-offs and landings can almost be made with your eyes shut. Because of the thick, high lift airfoil and the light wing loading, it cvan be landed ata snails pace and never drop a wing.
But friends, we put the wing on the bottom for a reason! With lots of control throw and the CG slightly to the rear of that shown on the plans, Aerotique lives up to its name. It is aerobatic! The roll rate is brisk, loops are tight, snaps and spins are instantaneous and inverted flight is a breeze.
If you like to put around the pattern in slow flight like I do, Aerotique is for you! Or, if you are a real hot dog pilot like some of my friends, Aerotique is for you!
Just a word a bout construction. Aerotique, like her sister Miss Vintage (oz4746) is designed to look complicated. Yet the construction is sound, fast building and economical. The fuselage is constructed of 1/8 in Sig Lite Ply and Spruce..."
Hi Steve - Here is George F. Jennings' Aerotique from RCM magazine issue 04-81.

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