About this Plan

Micturator - Water bomber. Sport amphibian model, very loosely based on the Canadair CL-215 (Scooper). For .19 - .25 twin power, a 'scale-like' sport flying amphibian.

Quote: - "It occurred to me that a wing design better than anything I might come up with already existed. Tichenor had used it with great success in his RCM Funster (oz6545). It is the Telemaster 40 wing which is available as a kit from Hobby Lobby. All that was necessary was to reposition a few ribs then add some structure between the nacelles ...Then we filled the tank with coloured water, drapped the flaps about ten degrees and took off. With nine pounds of airplane and two pounds of water, it took about 200 feet to lift off. On the second try we made the water drop in close enough for Tichenor to get a picture. Looked great.
The Micturator is fun to fly. It is stable about all three axes and has no bad habits. It's even more fun to fly off the water. Take-offs are a joy to watch and the take-off run seems to be shorter than on land. Several touch and go water pickups have been made... "

* 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.
