About this Plan

AJEP Wittman Tailwind - Radio control scale model. 39in wingspan sport scale model designed by Peter Holland for light 3 function R/C and 0.75cc diesel or .049 glow motors.

Quote: - "One look at the side view of the Wittman Tailwing was enough to inspire this builder ...I am old fashioned. I prefer a reasonably light wing loading on almost anything that flies. I cheated a wee bit. The fuselage is one-eighth scale and the flying surfaces are at the slightly larger scale of seven and a quarter to one, with the resulting loading of anout 10 or 11 ounces per square foot..."

* 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.
