About this Plan
Adante. Radio control sailplane model.
Quote: "The Adante is one of the highest performance sailplanes available. The design is intended to deliver flight performance not before seen in a commercially available kit. There have been no compromises to make the airplane easier to kit. The epoxyglass fuselage, the extra heavy duty joiner system, and the sealed flaperon hinge line are all included to improve the plane's flight capabilities and durability. We hope you feel the result is the best sailplane you can buy. Before beginning construction, we would like to thank several individuals without whose help the Adante would not have come about. First, Dave Shadel for his assistance in the area of foam cores and foam wing construction Second Col Bob Thacker for building one of the flrst prototypes ard providing invaluable advice in finalizing the design Finally, Joe Newland and Ed Holder, These two gentlemen have encouraged advised, begged, pleaded and pushed from the very beginning of the project through the production of the first kits, and the debt owed to them is a very large one indeed."
Direct submission to Outerzone.

* 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.
