About this Plan
Svenson Polo. Radio control trainer model. An ideal choice as a first R/C model, for engines in the 0.9 to .15 cu in class.
Quote: "POLO by SVENSON, made in Knokke Belgium. Dear Steve, here is the POLO by SVENSON; the cheapest model ever released by Svenson! Flies with 1.5 cc engine, easy to build. I've had more than 10 built. Flying with it is very nice. I hope many people build this model and share that same fun with me. Thanks, Greets"

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

User commentsHi Steve and Mary, here is my red POLO by Svenson [more pics 005]. This is equipped with a 2.5 cc OS FP. This engine is quiet, by his double room exhaust. The POLO is very lightly built, covered with ORACOVER, with my old 35 Mgz Graupner transmitter. Thank you for OUTER ZONE site.

Hi Mary and Steve; Here's my white POLO by Svenson, my favorite airplane [more pics 006]. Very cheap and yet the POLO can do everything as its big brothers. I have many children without a budget, let fly with my POLO. I have made a lot of kids happy with this aircraft. Nowadays no longer - with the advent of the computer, children are not outside more. But I still like to fly the POLO. Kind regards.

Hello Steve and Mary, Please find here two pictures of my scratch build Polo, build over the past years [more pics 007,008]. Now and then a little bit... I've used a tailwheel and it's electric. 2836 kv=1200, with a 8x4 prop, on a 3S 2200 mAh to 3S 3700 mAh. Ground starts are marginal with the small wheels, but a light throw out of the hand is enough. A very gentle trainer plane from way past. In a new jacket. Best regards from Belgium,

Here's some video of my scratch build Svenson Polo here, on 3s electric: https://youtu.be/be82LE2bAK4. Filmed at the The Little Wings field, Belgium.

* 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.
