About this Plan

Gay Devil. Control line stunt model.

Quote: " This model was designed to give the builder a stunter he can fly the 'devil' out of without fear of loosing a big investment in both time and money. It combines contest performance with unusual ease of flying. Everyone enjoys piloting a plane that performs and handles well. A quick glance at the plans will show that it is not the elaborately constructed and heavily doped stunt ship seen quite frequently; instead it is a down-to-earth design both aero-dynamically and structurally. The transparent red finish is certainly appealing, especially to spectators, as it passes between them and the sun to show off the internal wing structure. We do not claim this model to be all new. Instead it reflects influences of other models observed over the years. Structurally it is different from the majority in that no leading edge sheeting is used and that the wing and fuselage are built as one unit, not separately. This technique represents a big saving in construction time. As for flying, Gay Devil is stable and nonsensitive; it will pull extremely tight maneuvers without loss of speed when a lot of control is used. It flies through squares and triangular loops with ease (to both flyer and model) and without hesitation or bounce..."

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

* 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.
