About this Plan

eSKA. Electric powered radio control aerobatic model. For 30 watt motor. 31in wingspan.

Quote: "eSKA (electric Simple Kit Airplane - pronounced 'ee-skah') is an original kit designed for modelers with an interest in electric-powered airplanes capable of park flying and sport aerobatics. eSKA was designed from the beginning for light-weight brushless motors and LiPoly cells. This airplane makes use of strong, lightweight design and construction, which improves electric-powered flight performance and duration. Using the suggested motor and cells, eSKA will have unlimited vertical performance. eSKA was designed to fly a wide range of aerobatics, from very tight maneuvers to large, powerful loops, slow rolls, snaps, and big stall turns. eSKA's light weight and thin, semi-symmetrical, progressive airfoil allows for a wide speed range. eSKA is controllable and flies smoothly even in high winds, yet slow down and land like a feather. eSKA is a great-flying electric powered model that flies predictably, not your typical 'flip-&-flop' park flyer. eSKA should not be flown by a beginner R/C pilot. eSKA was designed to make motor battery changes as easy as possible, with no tools required. You don't have to turn the airplane over or remove the wing to change batteries. Just lift the front battery hatch up and hold it to the side for easy battery access. The recommended motor for eSKA is the Astro brushless .010 geared motor powered by 3S1P - 1200mAh LiPoly cells at 7 amps. This combination gives spectacular performance and long flight times. eSKA is light, yet tough, and its pop-off battery hatch and slide-off wing help reduce damage from less-than-perfect landings. eSKA is a simple-to-build, fly-anywhere airplane that is just plain fun to fly. This kit features leading edge design and interlocking laser cut parts for exceptional fit, quality, and ease of construction..."

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.
