About this Plan

Don Quixote. Scale model for radio control.

Quote: "This scale model (1:3.5) of the Polish homebullt is not only an appealing full sized aircraft, but extremely docile, with superb flying and ground handling qualities. By Laddie Mikulasko ...One of my favorites is a small Polish homebuilt called 'Don QuiKote.' The plane was designed by J. Janowski, who wanted to own a plane which was easy to build; easy to fly, and good looking. I think that he succeeded on all counts. If there is anyone interested in building the full sized aircraft, the address of the builder or plans EAA in the States, or the EAAC in Canada. Eight years ago I built two models of Don Quixote, the same size. I had a lot of fun flying them and entering several Canadian scale contests and flying rallies. Eventually I sold them so that I could concentrate on other modeling projects. As time passed, I could never forget this plane ...I made a new set of drawings and in a short time the model was built. Once again I'm having fun with it and receiving many nice comments... the model is exact scale, except for the engine, a 4-stroke, 2-cylinder engine would make it exact ...the model was designed to be easy to build for a relative beginner who has built at least one or two models before. To build the model, simply follow the order in which the instructions are written. Most items are identified by number or letter so that the description of the parts is made easier. The whole model is made from balsa, with some plywood and spruce."

Update 22/08/2016: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to davidterrell80. Quote: "All extant plans have some clipped geometry at the top of Sheet 1, from the interpage gap. The loss is disguised by the latter addition of a frame by a previous restorer. This scan, from a dissembled magazine, provides a decent look at all of the geometry. Created from 1st generation magazine scan."

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.
