About this Plan

Playboy Senior 425 Electric - Radio control model. A classic old timer for 1/2A Electric Texaco and 1/2A Electric Sailplane events. The original Joe Elgin designed Playboy dates back to 1940. This modern version is 425 sq in wing area, and uses a belt drive 4:1 geared Speed 400 electric motor.

Quote: - "Anyone who has flown Playboys will tell you that it seems to be the first plane to find a thermal and the last to fall out of it. Maybe that's a little exaggerated, but the fact is the glide is always slow, with a low sink rate..."

* 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.
