About this Plan

Skyrider - Radio control powered glider model.

Quote: -"The model is perfectly at home on any school field. Originally the power was a Cox Tee Dee .020 That was too much for this size model even with the digital radio in it. The model would handle it, but it kept trying to disappear strainght up! The power of a Pee Wee .020 hauls the SkyRider's 9-1/2 oz into thermal country very nicely, thank you. Once the engine quits,the SkyRider may be just trimmed for a nice glide circle and allowed to fly free if you wish; optimum duration comes with minimum control input anyway. Just steer it back upwind whenever it begins to drift behind you... "

Note this is a low resolution plan.

* 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.
