About this Plan

Wizard of Oz - Simple 4 foot glider for radio controlled slope soaring.

Quote: - "The Wizard of Oz is strong, four foot span, has a sheeted fuselage, sheeted leading edges and large enough compartments for any of the popular recievers and actuators. With a 4-1/2 volt torch battery, Terrytone and Conquest actuator the weight is around 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 lbs giving a loading of 10 to 11 oz per square foot. The model is quite orthodox. Stability is taken care of by adequate dihedral and balanced side areas..."

* 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.
