About this Plan

Ffoxy - TA1 towline glider model.

Quote: - "Publication of this attractive A/1 glider in Aeromodeller willl, it is hoped, have the same effect on Junior free-flight aeromodelling in the UK as it has in New Zealand, its country of origin ...noteworthy features were its ease of construction, excellent towing characteristics (thanks to the relatively thick wing section and 'hatchet' fuselage) and ruggedness."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction


User comments

Hello Outerzone! I thought you might like to have the build article which was published a month after the plan was issued. At the end of the article it states that trimming and flying instructions would feature in the following month's issue of Aeromodeller, but I have not found another article on Ffoxy, so maybe it didn't happen.

* 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.
