About this Plan

DHC-2 Beaver - Radio control scale model floatplane. For .40-.50 engines.

Quote: - "This ship is designed to look, fly and sound like its full-scale counterpart. It isn't an aerobatic machine, but with a strong .40 4-stroke, or even a .50 (it you're brave) when it breaks water you can point it straight up, and only its dininishing size will make you level off. Of course, for scale-like takeoffs and landings, flaps are mandatory. Dropping the flaps on the turn to final will allow you to point the nose down at a 30 degree angle and spot your landing for maximum scale realism. My side mounted Saito .50 is admittedly large for this 6.5 pound ship..."

Hi my friends, this my Beaver built from plans by Ed Westwood [more pics 003, 004]. I changed the float for landing gear. Constructed in balsa, plywood, fiberglass, covered with Monokote and colors of Aerotaxi of Colombia in '60s years. It's powered by O.S 61 four stroke and futaba radio 7 channel. It is a beautiful plane and great flying model. Greetings from Colombia. Thank you.

* 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.
