About this Plan

Skyphonic. RC sport model for 1/2A power.

Quote: "The Skyphonic is a swept wing model with clean lines. It is very easy to build and, as important, easy to fly. The model is designed around the relatively inexpensive two-channel proportional units... construction techniques used are those used by Carl Goldberg in his .049 RC kits. I used his techniques because they produce a quick building and strong model. The plane is so stable I would highly recommend it for a beginner, even as a first plane..."

Quote: "hallo Steve, among the thousands of foreign magazines in my home, this number misteriously remained for years on my father's workbench. Now I realized his interest was on article of revolutionary electric engines Kroker Sea Wasp and Sea Ram. With these motors he became Italian national champ for electric speed boats in the sixties. But my interest was always for the cover plane a very nice 1/2 A with swept wing, it seems an easy flying beginner model too..."

* 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.
