About this Plan

Alpha - RC pattern plane for .45 power. Wingspan 53in, wing area 525 sq in.

Quote: - "For the sport flier, a .40 powered ship that will do all the Masters maneouvers - simple, lightweight and with mercy to your chequebook desire to use fixed conventional trike gear was primarily to keep the expemse and weight down to a minimum, so an effort was made to keep the airframe drag down. The fuselage lines are very similar to the Bridi UFO (oz6024). The graceful lines of that strikingly beautiful aircraft provided the inspiration for Alpha's lines..."

* 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.
