Fieseler Fi 156 Storch (oz666)
About this Plan
Fieseler FL156 Storch. Scale German WWII STOL observation plane. From March 1967 Aeromodeller. Scale is 1/12.
Quote: "Ten years of excellent service to hundreds of flying scale enthusiasts confirm the pedigree of this one twelfth size design which we are now reissuing with radio control conversion. As a free flight model it has few peers. The proportions are near perfect. Only the odd fuselage section offers any difficulty and this is soon solved by use of a simple jig for assembly.
The Storch is easy to trim and fly, with characteristics very close to the full size. Gliding speed is slow and response to the rudder will be immediate thanks to the long fuselage which now embodies a simple self neutralising two position escapement. The size of the model permits it to accept all known commercial single chanel outfits.
The novel fuselage is a former and stringer assembly. Start by pinning formers to temporary carriers and mount on the jig, spaced in line and at correct height.."

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

ScaleType: This (oz666) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fieseler_Fi_156
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
