About this Plan

Duster - Radio control sport model for O.S. 40 FX engine.

Quote: - "Preliminary specifications were discussed for a new .40 powered model with outstanding low speed characteristics, with flight characteristics simllar to the designer's Rookie (oz7611) of the early 1960s. It seemed logical to couple the design parameters of the Rookie with the long nosed styling of a crop-duster, thus the 'Duster'. This model does not push the envelope with brute power or speed. Duster combines the more realistic side of model performance with above-average acrobatic capability...71.5inch tapered low-wing, with effective-but-docile split flaps, powered by an OS .40 FX. With 910 square inches of wing area, weight is 7.25 lb for a wing loading of 18.4oz per square foot. The split flaps lie forward of the standard strip ailerons..."

* 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.
