About this Plan

Lancer 45. Free flight power sport model.

Plan is marked: "JE Tileston, 1988. Co-operative Plans Service, 2011. Archive #002841. Digitally cleaned by Mephisto (Lubo Hrncar)."

Note the Lancer 45 plan (or at least, a good clean copy of it) has been missing for years. This here looks almost exactly the same as the (unclear) one previously available online - but is at much higher resolution, at 400dpi. This version will print clearly at fullsize.

Direct submission to Outerzone.


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

Hi Steve, if you are keen, one/some of these photos could accompany the Lancer 45 plan we have recently added [more pics 003-008]. Hopefully some more of these great little models will be built. I notice other photos of the 45 I have found show the high thrust line version like my latest. The only low thrust version photo with the upright motor and like this plan seems to be my 60 inch one. The picture with the two of them side by side tells the story [more pics 008]. I have seen ads for the 49 showing an inverted high thrust version but the plan doesn't talk about it. It shows low only. The 72 plan shows high thrust line but says it can be low thrust line upright if you want. My conclusion is that Lancers were always intended to be high or low thrust line at the builder's discretion. In my case I prefer the low thrust line but it was not practical on my little Lancer due to prop clearance considerations so it has a more conventional looking high thrust line. They look great in whatever version.

* 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.
