Electric Taurus 60 (oz7376)
About this Plan
Electric Taurus 60. Radio control pattern plane for electric power. A classic design updated and redrawn for electric power.
Quote: "Hi Steve. I would like to tell you about an airplane I have been flying for about a month. It is Ed Kazmirski 1960's Taurus (oz612) design. I have modernized it using his outline and adding electric power. The original was 72 in wingspan and using a reed system. I made two versions, one 50 in wingspan and one 60 in wing span. The 50 in flies very nice but is tight inside the fuse. The 60 in has more room where needed.
It is very stable but needed more rudder for knife edge. You will see from the pictures the 50 in version has the original fin and rudder and the 60 in version with the enlarged rudder. It now does a knife edge. With small movements on the controls, it is one of the most pleasant airplanes i have flown.
It is constructed from balsa and ply. I used a hacker 30, 1100kv with 4 cells. A turnigy 3536-1400 will do just fine. I used a plush 60 amp esc. I am presenting my version of the taurus here in pdf and dxf. If anyone wishes more information, they can email me at email@example.com or call me here in Florida at 954-370-2669. I love talking model airplanes."

* 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.
