About this Plan
Bi-Hawk. Radio control sport model.
Quote: "Hello Steve - Your website is one of the best things that has happened to modelers in my lifetime! I do have to go through my plans and figure out what I may be able to contribute. Here is plan for the Ecktronics Bi-Hawk. The plan dates to 1963 and was originally designed for single channel radio gear and an .049 engine. The designer listed on the plan is Dick Barnard. Cheers, Scott."
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 12/10/2021: Added tailplane file, thanks to DuaneHolliger.
Quote: "Hi Steve; This plan does not show the horizontal tail, and I see it has been requested. Here is a tracing of the kit part [see supplement file]. There is no separate elevator, as this was a rudder-only kit. I also included pictures of the box label [pics 009, 010]. The engine requirement is noteworthy. Apparently, an .020 is enough engine, but only if it is a 'hot' one."
Supplementary file notes
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsHi, this plan ( planID=7607) is missing the tail plane pattern. Is it possible to find it? Best regards,

Good point. Does anyone out there have a tracing of the tailplane parts? Thanks

The plan sheet 2 detailing construction of the lower wing and horizontal stab/elevator seems to be missing.

The more I look at this, the more I think there maybe never was a sheet 2. Bottom wing is a copy of top wing but with no centre section (plan says: Left wing make two, Right wing make two). Then the tailplane parts are all simple sheet balsa. If the horiz stab and elevator came in the kit box as precut parts, then this one sheet plan would be all the information you needed to build the kit.

Hi Mary and Steve, this thread helps with the Bi-Hawk tailplane shape: www.rcgroups.com/forums

Hello Steve - I have come across this photo of my grandfather's Bi-Hawk which may shed some light on the stab/elevator shape [more pics 004]. The photo is dated March 1967 and the writing on the back of the photo claims that it was a "good flier". Snoopy, complete with aviator scarf, can be seen manning the cockpit. Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers,

Added superb photos of this lovely completed model, thanks to Mauricio Bertello in Argentina [model photo & more pics 05-008]. You can also watch Mauricio's work in action at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VL6xt0r-aOQ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhB7dQ3XKGM&t=208s

* 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.
