About this Plan

JetFire 40 - Radio control sport/trainer model. Wingspan 52in, wing area 559 sq in. For .40 power.

Quote: "The Jetfire .40 is an excellent choice as either an advanced trainer or a sport model. The shoulder wing design and long tail moment provide solid and predictable handling white still being capable of aerobatics and sustained inverted flight. The semi-symmetrical airfoil gives the model a very broad speed range: with a hot .40 at full throttle the Jetfire will surprise you with its speed, but you can still throttle back and come in at a walk on landings. The tail skid in the kit wasn't originally there - we added it only after we tore the Monokote off our prototypes while dragging them in on landings!

The structure is simple and strong, yet the use of the thick top block lets the nose of the Jetfire be shaped to a streamlined look and avoids that 'box with a wing on top' look. Enough of the preliminaries, let's get on with the building!

All of the building notes and construction photos that follow were done by Jim Pearson, a very talented modeler and long time friend. We thank Jim for his help and are sure you'll agree he's done a first rate job... "

Steve, Looking through your site, I noticed that you don't have the Airtronics Jetfire .40 listed. I recently scanned my set of plans into a PDF file so that I could make copies for another gentleman. I have attached a copy of the PDF file if you would like to upload it as well. David

* 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.
