About this Plan

Parakeet - Radio control sport biplane model, for .15 to .25 power. Also kitted by Tidewater Hobby.

Quote: "Known for its simple construction, great three channel RC performance and sporty, realistic appearance, my popular sport-flying Pronto (oz1740) captures the very essence of fun. The design has long been a favourite of mine, so when fellow modeller Chuck Cusick challenged me to convert it into a biplane, I couldn't resist..."

* 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.
