About this Plan

Whipsaw. Control line combat model. 31 inch span profile fuselage combat-stunt controlliner for all .09 to .19 engines.

Steve, See attached plan for the 31 inch Whipsaw control liner from Ambroid. Not sure of the vintage, but I think it's early 1960s.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 29/01/2019: Added tail template file, many thanks to Pit. Shows parts for horizontal stab and elevator.

Supplementary file notes

Alternate version of the same plan thanks to rchopper56: larger filesize, but clearer (grayscale).

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

No horizontal tail plan?

I guess this is a case where the kit would have included the horizontal stab and elevator ready formed, so there's was no need to show them (in plan view) for construction purposes. But if anyone out there can submit an outline tracing of the tail parts, that would be great. We'll add it as a supplement.

How can I get the elevator and stabilizer? Thanks,

Added now, see supplement file (thanks to Pit).

Ambroid had a little 'toon for many of their models [more pics 004; see also Jetstream oz7937 & Charger oz2903]. Scanned from a full page magazine ad that showed many of them. You can see these graphics are on the plans.

* 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.
