    ScaleType: This (oz7445) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

I built this kit in the early 80s. I was flying round the pole at the time and converted the Monsun to a twin engined RTP model. It flew beautifully. Photos attached [see more pics 004, 005].

How can I find the specifications of the two electric engines used and the battery (specially its weight spec ) which you used for flying of this beautiful modified model? Cordially,

Thank you for your kind words. This model is RTP (round-the-pole) so there is no battery. I bought the motors from Ballards (England) who were the RTP specialists for many years. You can still find this equipment at where there is information on how RTP works if you are not too familiar with it. The book 'Electric RTP Flying' on is even more informative and there are some photos of my Vic Smeed RTP 'Wattsname' on Outerzone here, which was designed from the outset as an RTP model. Hope this helps !

* 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.
