Quote: "Hi Steve! Awesome site! Thank you for taking the time to run it ...a new plan you do not have, it is a pullout from 1992 issue of Model Airplane News, the Gnat, I had it scanned in 2 PDFs. Hope this helps! Thanks!"

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 12/04/2021: Added follow-up article "Gnat Tabs", thanks to GeoffreyMalling.

Note: we actually don't have the main build article here yet, if anyone can send it in, that would be great. Steve:)

Mary & Steve Here is a pic of the "Gnat" I built [more pics 003]. It has an AP .09 and 4 channels.

Built a couple of years ago from the pull-out plans, still flies very well today, very fast tonneaux! [More pics 004, 005]. I use a Supertigre X11 for power (spins a 7x3 at 19000 rpm).

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.
