About this Plan

Frisco Kid - Pylon power model.

Quote: - "Here is the hottest free-flight gas design to appear during 1954 - just in time for this year's International FAI events ...simple to build, clean in design, the Frisco Kid barrels up there, right in the groove, flight after flight... "

From Flying Models, April 1955.

Hello, here again after nine days in the hospital I have found that one of the new plans incorporated has been the FRISCO KID. I have done it in scale for 1/2. Two - one for me and another for my son and this is the result [more pics 003-010].

* 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.
