About this Plan

Bad Medicine - Competition 1/2A-A free flight for hot .049 to .051 engines. Design and pencils by Mike Ransom (with apologies to Jim Clem). Wing area 280 sq in. Weight 6-1/2 to 7 oz.

Quote: - "Carrying just 280 squares, 'Bad Medicine' tippy-toes a fine line between optimum climb and acceptable glide, offering the best of both worlds. The plane was developed by Mike back in the 74 contest season, originally intended to be a backup ship for this year's Nats. However its prformance capabilities quickly made it Mike's number one tourniquet for shutting off the competition."

* 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.
