About this Plan

Zue - Radio control model.

Quote: - "Although 'Zue' was designed as a contest model, she's a sport flier as well. Basically, Zue is an expendable type, not too elaborate or expensive. Maneouverable and light, yet she is rugged enough to withstand rough landings and high speed ...Zue would fly nicely with a .19 engine, and with a K&B .35 R/C is definitely over-powered , but a reliable throttle control make sit a fairly mild airplane..."

Steve, Here is a plan for the ZUE designed by Bill Wischer. I got this plan from John Pond about 20 years ago. My first digital proportional airplane was a Goldberg Falcon 56 with a RCM digitrio back in '67. I read back in the '80s that Bill's wife Margaret (Dolly) designed the Super Zue for a proportional radio that she also designed. Goldberg modified the Super Zue for the Falcon 56. Thanks again.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

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


User comments

Bill Wischer was actually the son of Bob and Dolly Wischer. Many consider the Zue to be the epitome of rudder-only design in the US.

* 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.
