About this Plan

Minnie - Radio control sailplane. Simple 2 function hand launch (javelin hand lanch, that is) glider design by Mike Proctor.

Quote: - "I do hand launch the model, but prefer to use a very short bungee made from 30ft of Terylene control line thread (Keil Kraft) and 15ft of 1/4in flat rubber. This combination gives a simulation of a mighty heave from a good thrower but without effort or strain. My best flight so far has been 5 min 30 sec and that was on a windy day..."

Here are some pictures of the Minnie Glider that I built from plans downloaded from your site [model photo & more pics 003, 004]. With a little trimming I had the glider flying 75 ft from shoulder height. Great website keep up the good work.

* 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.
