About this Plan

PAA-Packet. Free flight PAA competition model.

Quote: "Most modellers prefer a quick form of construction, and the PAA-Packet is no exception to the 'quickie' tradition, it follows the layout of some successful 1-1/2cc FAI models previously built, with the same airfoil section (one devloped in the Apsley Club's wind tunnel) Theory was proved when the completed airframe came out at 4.15 oz, making 7 oz with the engine, and 11 oz loaded. A veteran ED Bee was used for the qualifying flight, and although it could only manage about 5,000 rpm gave a still air flight of 1 min 40 on a 15 second run, having a very tight left spiral climb..."

Update 04/04/2017: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy (patterned background removed) thanks to TonyP.

Quote: "I spotted the note about the RCGroups build-off starting in April. I have no idea what that is but I had a quick browse through some of the plans and spotted one needing cleaning, PAA Packet ID 7371. As it could be needed urgently I downloaded it and cleaned it on an 'emergency' basis and have attached it together with its cleaned article. Tony"

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

Nice one, Tony. Someone really should build this one, now. Funnily, I always see this as a twin, from the side view. Would look good that way, too.

* 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.
