About this Plan

Focke-Wulf Ta 152. Semi-scale CL stunt plane. Wingspan 56in, wing area 615 sq in.

Quote: "Semi-scale World War II planes have added an entirely new dimension to control line stunt! Planes in this category began to look so much alike that it was hard to tell them apart, now they have that exciting scale look added to flying qualities for top performance. Focke-Wulf Ta 152, By Keith Trostle

The stunt design of today is the result of an evolutionary process which started when control lines were first placed on a model. Most designs available today, when properly built and finished, are capable of executing a smooth, well integrated stunt pattern, which includes the 5-foot radius corners of the square and triangular maneuvers. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to develop a design capable of turning these corners as outlined in the rule hook and still perform a completely smooth, precise pattern which the rule book also outlines. Until the rules are changed so that the total pattern is no longer stressed and each manuver would consist only of 5-foot radius corners, variations of the basic Nobler (oz6212) or Thunderbird (oz6238) configurations will continue to be the most successful in competition circles.

Personal desires and requirements must be considered when selecting a stunt model to be used for competition need a moderately fast airplane (60-65 mph) which allows little time in the maneuvers for an unsteady hand to cause bobbles, but yet is not so fast that it becomes difficult for slow reflexes to keep up..."

* 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.
