About this Plan

Sky Chief - Radio control low wing sportster for .29 - 40 power.

Quote: - "Nostalgia is rather an infectious frame of mind, and one which I was in when I conjueed up this little 'light aircraft' type model, from the days when fullsize home-builts were more like models - and models were made from sticks and oiled silk. Sky Chief is no oldie itself though, as new trends in design and outline have been included in this 52in span sportster, which began in late 1973. The resultant creation has I feel the atmosphere of a modern light aircraft - and a sprightly aerobatic capability to go with it - yet as it purrs past on finals with the evening sun shining through all that fabric, you're back in the good old days..."

* 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.
