Hi Steve, I'm a long time fan of Outerzone. Great site! I have a question about the most recent plan posted - the "Electro-Mite" by Paul Del Gatto. It is shown as a pylon electric FF, described in American Aircraft Modeller, December 1960. Interestingly, the Pacific Aeromodellers Club of British Columbia web site has an article from the December 1960 issue of Mechanix Illustrated http://pac.memberlodge.org/page-1633576, also showing an Electro-Mite by Paul de Gatto. Only here it is an electric control-line model, with the flight battery incorporated in the control handle. So what's going on here? Regards,

Thanks Gerry, thats interesting. I guess the name was used twice - I suppose often the editor rather than the deisgner slapped a name onto a design, and the naming was maybe sometimes haphazard?

* 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.
