About this Plan

Jetco Dragonfly. All sheet balsa biplane model.

Quote: "Your 'Dragonfly' is designed for free flight using motors of .010 to .025 displacement, and for U-control using motors of .035 to .065 displacement. While the ship can be built for both, it is much more advisable for you to decide which type of flying you intend to do before you begin construction. Read instructions thoroughly before setting to work..."

Steve, Here's a plan I created of the Jetco Dragonfly. I've scanned the kit contents and traced them in AutoCAD to create the pdf plan here. I also scanned the kit instructions and Dragonfly logo for decal making. Wingspan 19.5in. Free-Flight or Control line. For .010 -.065 engines.

Hello OZ! Here are a couple pics of my Free Flight replica Jetco Dragonfly [003, 004] which was maidened on New Year's Day,2021! It's 16 inch span, reduced from 19.5 inches, built from discarded EPS foam meat trays from the supermarket, and decorated with Sharpie markers. Weighing in at 27 grams, it's powered by an 8520 coreless DC motor, 20 Farad supercapacitor, and a 65mm prop. It flies great, very easy to trim, and turns in reliable one-minute flights in dead air. Wishes for health and happiness in the new year from Mike and Richie on the sonex413 YT channel! From Monson, Massachusetts, USA,

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.
