About this Plan

Zephyr - Radio control glider model.

Quote: - "An ultra-light RC glider that's great for hand-launching, slope-soaring or mini-hi-starting. With this glider, virtually any empty lot or public park becomes a flying site..."

A very nice plane for relaxed flying. I changed the airfoil to AG35. With 350mah lipo, 2x9gramm servos, 3ch transmitter and oracover finish its weight is 250 gramm. The perfect plane for my South Bavarian Homeland or similar terrain [more pics 004-006].

* 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.
