Dyke Delta JD-2 (oz6415)
About this Plan
Dyke Delta JD-2. Sport scale model by Laddie Mikulasko. For OS 26 4-stroke engine.
Quote: "Lowering the wing loading while increasing the power loading had a dramatic effect on the model's performance. I am sure that the electric version can be made to fly much better by using a different gear ratio. The model is a good stable flier with take-offs and landings being straightforward. Although the plane wasn't designed to do aerobatics, it will loop and roll but, as with any delta plane, it will not spin. When stalled it drops the nose, picks up flying speed, and recovers almost immediately. The take-off is only practical using a hard surfaced runway since the scale nose wheel is very small.
If you decide to build the Dyke Delta, be certain to select light wood.
Before you start building the model, you should be aware that the model uses elevons for control. You may use either a mechanical or electronic mixer. On my model I used a mechanical type manufactured by the Logictrol Company years ago; however, the Du-Bro Company manufactures a different but acceptable style. The easiest installation is the electronic type that is a feature of most newer radios.
Before any construction is attempted please study the drawings. To make building of the model easier, I numbered all of the pieces and will refer to individual parts by numbers.
Construction: The model is built in one piece directly over the plan. The only detachable parts arc the cowl and rear of the cabin. Start by cutting out all the ribs and formers..."

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz6415) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dyke_Delta
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
