About this Plan

Soarcerer - Intermediate slope soarer (rudder and elevator). Wingspan 52in. Classic design.

Quote: - "Dave Hughes charming little intermediate slop soarer is a real delight to fly. Originally designed for rudder-only but now with 2 function proportional, Soarcerer will do everything a model of this type theoretically should not - rolls, bunts, inverted flying and guaranteed first try spins. Stays airborne on the merest whiff of lift - and is also quite happy in winds of up to 40mph. Don't ask for the why's and wherefores - it just happened."

Soarcerer, Radio Modeller, October 1969.

This is the model that really taught me the basics of r/c flying. I had no access to an instructor so it was a case of 'do it yourself'. Needless to say, my "Soarcerer" took a real beating but it was one tough model. With an old Fuji 15 sitting on a pod (I fly flatland), time after time and crash after crash it just kept right on flying! Eventually I partly sorted out my skills until one day it got 'planted' for the final time in a high speed spiral dive that I didn't know how to recover from......... I still have the fin & rudder from that model for memories sake..... I should build one more. Thanks to whoever submitted this plan and and always, please keep up the good work, this is a great site!

* 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.
