About this Plan

Langley - Rubber conmetition model. Mulvihill Trophy winner.

Quote: - "National record of 22 minutes and 49.5 seconds ...I feel the success of this model is due to its simplicity, rugged construction where needed and clean lines. Langley has on occasions been upset in the glide due to rough air or thermal activity and started stalling. It stays in a gentle stall, never building up to disaster, then works its way out and back to its normal smooth glide. Build it and see for yourself..."

* 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.
