Hi, Here a few pictures of my Mini Cardinal [main pic 003, 004]. This is electric powered. Thanks,

Good day, I built the Mini Cardinal for electric three-channel RC earlier this year [pics 005-009] and have attached a couple pics for OZ. I forget why I chose to electrify the Mini Cardinal plan and not just build from the Electric Cardinal plan also hosted here but it is what it is. In any case it has far too much dihedral and too little fin and the little thing Dutch rolls quite badly in flight. I plan to add a little area to the fin to correct for that but the attached pics are as-built. Thanks as always for running a great site.

* 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.
