About this Plan

Basic Trainer - Let's Fly - Simple profile trainer for control line. Note the plan shows two wing airfoils, for basic trainer or stunt trainer.

Hey you two, I ran across that RCGroups PDG thread saw you had been updating the list so I decided to run thru it again. So, here is the CL Trainer from the August 1960 MAN. There is no article associated with it other than the instruction sheet.

Plan was printed in the magazine at 1/4 fullsize, this has been scaled up to full wingspan at 32in.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

* 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.
