About this Plan

Flying Sorceror. Free flight sport model. From the 'For the Tenderfoot' series.

Quote: "Do you believe in flying saucers? Now you can - this one's for real, an 020 free flight... AFTER some years of study, the Air Force apparently has decided that flying saucers really don't exist. Perhaps they should have paid more attention to Southern California before making up their minds, because flying saucers have been seen there for quite a while. Of course, these saucers are not too big and don't fly too long, so possibly the Air Force can be excused.
These UFO's are in reality models, the latest version being the Flying Sorcerer. Earlier models were powered by various-sized engines, including one Jetex-powered version. Then there was the model known as the Flying Pizza because of an unfortuĀ­nate color scheme composed mainly of yellow and red!"

G'day! Just wondering how do these flying circle wings keep stable without dihedral? Is there an easy explanation?

I built this when I was 13, it really flew great! Once I got the balance right it just seemed to glide forever!

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.
