About this Plan

Blue-Tail Fly - Control line stunt model.

Quote: "Half-A stunt jobs usually are sick, overweight heartbreakers. With a good engine, cowl, this one even beats racers... With the addition of an engine cowl, your Bluetail Fly can show its tail to most Half A Team Racers. The wing may appear large for racing, but the airfoil section is thin and fast, similar to the modern jet plane..."

* 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.
