About this Plan

AMA Delta Dart - Rubber sport model. Simple beginner's model.

Quote: - "The plane that fooled the 'experts' - AMA's Delta Dart. A phenomenally successful junior interest wherever tried ...too elemantary was the usual reaction. Old fashioned. Crude. Heavy. Inefficient. But respect came when kids found the Dart a snap to build and a good performer..."

User comments

Hi Steve & Mary, Since I was the one who begged for this plan on rcgroups I thought it right to share a photo of the resultant model [more pics 003]. I began cutting strips and constructing the model about 20.00 on New Year's Eve as a last effort to build a model to completion in 2016. By 23.00 it was done. Could have been quicker but I was using white glue! It hasn't flown yet but I foresee no issues.

* 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.
