About this Plan

Outdoor Flyer. Simple rubber sport model.

Quote: "Your model for this month is a small version of the 'Inez Jane', a high performance 'stick' type model which has become so popular among lightweight rubber-powered type fans in the past year. The original Inez Jane was not only easy to build, but was also a sensational performer on the contest field as well. At the T Eaton Co's Contest last year I made 5 official flights with this model, losing it each time, but fortunately having it returned every time to the contest field. When the prizes were given out, we had won second place in the contest.

Though our current contest rules do not have a category for so small a model, you should not let this fact stop you from building one. Just show the 'Outdoor Flyer' to your friends, better still show them a couple of flights with it, then start organizing a little club and contest of your own.

You beginners who have been following and building each model of this series will notice that the 'Outdoor Flyer' has a double-surfaced wing just like a real aeroplane. This is generally considered superior to the cambered type of wing featured on our model in last month's issue. Most important of all fellas, is that good rubber strip is once more available at all leading hobby shops in quantity after being absent from the shelves for almost five years..."

* 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.
