About this Plan

Pierce Arrow. 2M class RC glider.

Quote: "Steve, Here is a good one for your site. This plane was a contemporary of the Craft Air 'Drifter' and Mark's Models 'Wanderer' 2 meter, 2 channel gliders. I flew both of those as well as this plane, and I think I liked this best of the three. You will have to work out the few bulkheads from the side and top views (but they are square or rectangles) and the basic wing rib is shown in the side view. If you are considering building any classic 2 meter bird, this one is well worth considering. Final span should be about 76in."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 14/03/2020: Added kit review from January 1975 RCM, thanks to RFJ.

Here is my sister again, sporting the Farrah Fawcett look and holding a Pierce "Arrow" 2m glider [more pics 003]. Simple 2 channel machine and a good flyer. Pic from the late '70s.

I suppose it doesn't matter much now, but I'm going to set the record straight. Ed Slobod designed the Pierce Arrow around 1973 or 74 during a layoff from Douglas Aircraft. Eddie, Tom Williams and I were all members of the SFVSF at the time. Tom Williams came out with the Drifter about 1 year later. Tom "Value Engineered" the Drifter to a lower price point. The two models are very similar but the Drifter was derived from the Pierce Arrow, not the other way around. Williams sold his co about ten years later and drifted away. I ran into him at Mojave in the '90s I think. He had built a Long Eazy. Eddie died in 2009, RIP.

* 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.
