About this Plan

Tipsy Nipper MkII - Stand-off scale model for .29 to .45 power.

Quote: - "To me the deisgn is perfect for modeling. It is round in the right places for beauty and square in the right places for construction. The shoulder wing must be removed and requires tight fitting. It is the only factor that keeps it out of the beginner's class. The foam wing is simple to cut and is cored out in the centre for lightness..."

No wing dihedral mentioned in the plan ?

About the dihedral angle: yardstick wing spar looks doubled at the central section, like for a dihedral brace. The correct angle could be traced following the bottom contour of F19 and F18 formers.

The wing tip position is drawn on the elevation, therefore as long as the plan scales correctly at 1:1 (easily checked from the o/a dimensions printed on it) the dihedral can be measured directly.
Skippy - 04/07/2017
Dihedral on a Tipsy Nipper is 5 degrees 30 minutes on each wing panel.

* 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.
