About this Plan
Commander. Radio control sport model, from Wik Modelle.
Quote: "Hello Steve and Mary, herewith I send you the plan for the 'Commander', a RC-1 pattern plane from the 70s, designed and boxed by WIK Wilfried Klinger. You're already hosting the later version Commander II (oz4957), the one attached is the first Mk. It's mostly a bit shorter then the later versions, designed for a fixed undercarriage and without any plastic parts. I bought this kit as NOS in 1987 or so, built it during the early 90s, then let it rest another 20 years 'till last summer when I finally maidened it behind a screaming VECO 61 (at my 100% LiPo based flying site - another story ;) ). Here are two plan sheets, the building instructions (4 pages, German), some pix of the box and a scan of the original decals. Later this year I will hopefully take some snapshots of the plane itself and then send these, too. Best regards, Hubert"

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

Here some recently taken pictures of my own Commander [more pics 008-010], equipped with an old Veco 61 (mind the 'Silencer'). The 11x7 3-blade prop is equally useless, btw. In fact I really do like the plane. Nicest thing are the landings. It flares out like a Jumbo :)

* 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.
