About this Plan

KK Eaglet. Rubber powered cabin model from Keil Kraft.

This is a modern CAD-redrawn plan.

Quote: "This plan includes all formers and the instructions sheets. This is a 7 page PDF bit map file and all but page 5 will print out on letter size paper. Page 5 is the full size drawing. The instructions were a challenge to say the least, especially the illustrations.

The original post by aeromeddeler and the videos of a twice size electric powered Eaglet aroused my interest so I downloaded from plans from Outerzone. I then proceeded to create a cad file earlier this year.

As the CAD drawing began to take shape, I found an error in the print wood for the stabilizer trailing edge, T5. The airfoil shown for the stab did not reduce to 3/32in at the width of the trailing edge shown on the drawing. Correcting requires a wider stabilizer trailing edge or increasing the trailing edge of each rib to 3/32in at its width and then have a sudden drop off to the trailing edge.

Having spent the majority of my career working with airfoils in a wind tunnel, I chose the wider stabilizer trailing edge. This cosmetically eliminated T8. Everything looked good in the stabilizer solids but I am not sure everything will work out."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
