Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 24/01/201: Added Mouche drawing, thanks to Pit. This Bourdon plan (see comments) was published incomplete - no tail parts were shown, but there was an instruction to refer to the 'Mouche' plan for tail layout details.

Supplementary file notes

Mouche drawing (MRA March 1960), showing tail layout.


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

Is tailplane and rudder coming later?

Ah, good point. Funny I never even noticed there is a 2nd sheet missing from this one. Will have look and see if we can locate it. Thanks.

Maybe not a missing sheet... what does the French text under the 'Empennages' heading say? Something like ...same as the 'Mouche' plan?
SteveWMD - 27/12/2016
Empennage notes says that the tailplane is similar to the Mouche model tailplane, the rudders could be a little reduced, refers to the Mouche plan for tailplane info on bullettin of 16.2.1949.

* 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.
