About this Plan

Jersey Jester. Free flight power model. K&B .15 engine shown. Class A contest model by Frank Ehling.

Quote: "Jersey Jester, by Frank Ehling.

While no serious student of the aeromodeling arts would ever call his research work 'finished,' or insist that his latest model would always remain his best, it is true that on rare occasions a top-notch designer will come up with a craft which he feels out-shines by far any of his previous designs - successful as they may have been for him or for his followers.

Frank Ehling, noted New Jersey competition flyer and designer, has had such splendid flight performances from this his latest .15-category free flight that it appeared only fair that we share the plans with other dethermalizer devotees. Herewith then FE's latest, his best and the one he'll have a hard time surpassing himself."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

* 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.
