About this Plan

Great Lakes Trainer. Radio control scale biplane model, for .90 power.

Quote: "Hi Steve, Back in 2007, I wanted to build the the Great Lakes Trainer. I found the Great Lakes Trainer (oz415) plans drawn by Hurst Bowers for Flyline Models. The size was too small for my use (40 inch with a .25 engine). I imported the pdf file into CAD. After many hours I had a drawing file(dwg). I now could scale to the size I wanted (63.5"-.90fs engine).

It was a fun project. I now started building the front with the engine and landing gear. It look so good that I continued until I had finish the complete frame. Lots of details had to be worked out and lots of fun doing it. Flying is fun, slow and steady, but landing in a cross wind is a bit hard."

* 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.
