About this Plan

Hearn's HotRod. Control line sport trainer model.

Quote: "Hi Steve & Mary, Here is the HH Hot-Rod, a rather special model for me. It was my first IC powered model, and my first C/L model. As a barely teen age country boy who had yet to see another C/L model 'in the flesh', let alone see one fly, the detailed instructions on the plan allowed me to fly from the first take-off without any 'major incidents'. The Hot-Rod was designed and drawn for Hearns by Monty Tyrrell, one of the pioneers of C/L flying in Australia in the late 1940s and though the 50s and 60s. A few years after building this model I met Monty, and we became firm friends as he mentored me though the ups & downs and ins & outs of C/L Stunt. We went on to fly R/C together, he was quite a character, and a bit of a larrikin. Sadly, he became ill and passed away in the late 1980s, far too early. Cheers, KraftyOne."

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

* 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.
