About this Plan

Hi-Fly. Free flight power sport model. For OK .049 engine.

Quote: "You may have seen ships cimb fast, but never as fast as this one!Build thei contest model tofay and start piling up the hardware! The Hi-Fly, by Danial Mass.

The average model builder living in a big city is probably in the same boat as we are - able to go flying but once a week (weather permitting), and having to travel many miles to the nearest flying field, which is slowly but surely getting smaller. Under these conditions we need a plane which is dependable as well as good performing.

Having surveyed all types of planes we decided 1/2A was the answer to our problems. After experimenting with several jobs, we designed the Hi-Fly. It has all the features of simplicity, ruggedness, and dependability, combined with amazing performance.

The Hi-Fly is very stable under power and in the glide. It climbs straight up in a right spiral and glides in wide left circles. Materials needed for building the ship can be purchased for around the price of a movie ticket and the building time required is but a few evenings.

The fuselage is started by laying out the 1/8 in square balsa crutch. While this is drying, cut formers B to J out of 1/16 medium balsa. Formers A and B-1 are cut from 1/16 plywood. When the crutch is dry, pick it up and cement formers A to J in place, except for B-1..."

* 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.
