About this Plan

Aerostar 20 - Radio control sport trainer model for .20 power and 3-4 channels. Discontinued kit from Midwest. Wingspan 52-1/2in, wing area 472 sq in.

Quote: "Your first flight - You'll learn to fly the Aero-Star .20 with confidence. That's because the Aero-Star .20 has been designed to self-recover from any attitude. Just close the throttle and let go of the sticks, it doesn't get any easier than that."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 21/05/2017: added build manual, thanks to Josh O'Connor.

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

Some photos of an Aerostar 20 that I built [more pics 003, 004].

I was the source for the Aerostar 20 plans that Rob Reynolds helpfully scanned in for me and sent to you. I have just scanned the instruction booklet that came with that same set of plans [supplementary file]. Thought it would be a nice way to preserve one of the legendary step by step build manuals that Midwest was famous for.

* 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.
