About this Plan

Fokker Super Universal. Free flight model for compressed air power.

Quote: "HA Reynold & Joseph S Ott's Fokker Universal Compressed Air Model. Source: Original plans, see July-August issue of Aviation Mechanics for Ref. Wingspan 72in. 30in x 3in x 2-1/2in tank shown. Larger tank may be fitted for longer duration."

Here is a plan for a 1928 Fokker Universal, done in 1931 By Joe Ott & H.A. Reynold, It was basically designed around a 3 cylinder compressed air motor that had like a 3 foot brass air tank. Though it's a bit spartan on detail, but with a 6 foot wingspan, you can add a lot of detail and structure to it. I should go well with R/C and either electric or glow, or, if you have one of those antique compressed air motor, build it as per plan, Bob.

Corrections?

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz8913) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fokker_Super_Universal
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

User comments

Greetings Steve, I was intrigued by the multi cylinder co2 engine Joe Ott designed for his Ott Super Universal. I did some research and found Dave Kernel has built single and three cylinder versions using basic shop tools and readily available hobby metals. Here is a link to his website, which includes updated plans he produced as well as build photos of these fabulous engines: www.floridaame.org/GalleryPages. THANKS FOR OUTERZONE!!!!!

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
