Jr Falcon (oz8144)
About this Plan
Junior Falcon. Radio control trainer model. Wing area 250 sq in, for .049 engines and single channel radio. A reduced-size version of the successful Falcon 56 (oz2424) design.
Note this here is the original version of the Jr Falcon plan, from Carl Goldberg. For an alternate modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format, (features I-beam wing spar, and some minor differences) see Jr Falcon (oz2191).
Quote: "Knowing a good thing when he has one, Goldberg scaled his Falcon down to smaller size. Appearance, design and construction features are so much like the 56in plane you would have difficulty telling them apart in the air - except for the noise. Junior is intended especially for any .049 engine ...which gives lots of leeway. The fuselage sides have same W-joint in the center, the same doublers fore and aft, the same keyed formers, top and bottom. Wings are made the same way, with Symmet-True methods to assure easy and accurate assembly. Intended basically for Rudder operation, the Jr. Falcon may be flown with kick-up elevator and plans show where to cut the stab for this addition. Despite modest size, there is lots of fuselage space for radio gear, both under wing and in the nose compartment. Designer Goldberg feels Junior is ideal for the 'package' radio units, depicts the Citizen-Ship R/C Pak in one sketch. Another suggested and illustrated installation is C & S Finch receiver with Septalette Mark V actuator, for proportional rudder."

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.
