An awesome flying model! Superb on 3 channels. Flown with both a .29 and .40; it handles the power very well. One of the very best 3-channel trainers I have ever flown. Original kit model has fuselage formers made of balsa ply!

Hello. Here is the scan of the German instruction from TAXI 1. I made a scan from the original one, from my unbuilt TAXI 1 ... :D TAXI 1 was my first RC Plane. It was built by my grandfather at his lifetime and I finished it. The TAXI was killed while I flew it with a 6,5ccm webra blackhead... :D The kit from the TAXI 1 is unbuilt and was a very cheap auction at ebay. I had to buy it...

Hi, Here is a photo of the Taxi Graupner rebuilt according to your plans [pic 005]. Fitted with an electric motor. Kind regards,

Hi there, I hope all is well. This is a picture of my Graupner TAXI been build from your plans I have tried to make it as authentic as I could [main pic, 007].
Tailplane and fin separates as well as the undercarriage are removable for easy transportation should I need to, please feel free to use it in your pic gallery.
I’m about completing the RCM New Era III model as well as the Veron Piper Cherokee 180, all three models I have owned and build in the 1980’s.
Thank you for your fantastic website and thank you for bringing all those forgotten nostalgic models back to life, please keep up the good work. Many thanks. Kind regards,

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.
