About this Plan

Pipsqueak - Radio control sport model.

Quote: - "The Pipsqueak model is a general purpose small-field airplane, scaled down from the Midwest Esquire (oz384) and designed for the Cox Tee Dee .01. Special emphasis is made on the airplane's ability with a dual proportional system. The author has developed what he feels is the smallest and lightest Galloping Ghost system that will yeild smooth, positive control..."

Quote: - "If you want a good park size plane from the RCM catalog, check out the Pipsqueak. It was originally for .020. I've built a couple of them, powered by PeeWee 020 engines and 2 channel proportional, and they flew great. Of the tiny planes I've built over the years, this one flew the best..."

I noticed you didn't have any good Pipsqueak photos besides the one from the magazine. Here's one I built in 2007 [see more pics 003].

Here are some pictures of my Pipsqueak (Mini Esquire) built from your plans, tile printed from your website [more pics 005-012]. It flies very nicely. I built it with a short kit from www.balsaworkbench.com.

The Pipsqueak was an enjoyable build and it flies great! I have been adding spacers under the trailing edge of the wing to cut down on the ballooning when the speed increases, it has plenty of down thrust. It's just a matter of adjusting the wing incidence for how I like my planes to fly.

* 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.
