Number 7 (oz8962)
About this Plan
Number 7. Radio control sport/trainer model.
Quote: "Here are the plans for Number 7. It is a .10 - .15 sized 3 channel knock-about that has been everything from a club trainer, the club float plane, combat plane. Built in mass, our Grass Valley, California club really enjoyed this Harry Stewart design. Thanks, Bryan."

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

User commentsHi, here are a few photos of Number 7 (not Mad Jack's donkey) built from the plan on Outerzone [model photo & more pics 003-005]. Mine is electric, easy build, easy fly, would take just hours to build this depending on how fast your glue dries.

In case you, like me, were wondering abut Mad Jack's donkey - turns out that in the 1970s/80s American TV series The Life & Times of Grizzly Adams, there's a character 'Mad Jack', who has a donkey named 'Number 7'. Did Harry Stewart name his plane after the donkey?!

"Number Seven" is the name of the "lucky" considered billiard ball, it's a nickname for several things (race horses too).

It was simply the 7th design and the one that worked. Harry was a wonderful mentor - he would loan out the blueprints to be copied only if you signed a blood oath. I was smart enough to make 2 sets of plans. When I returned to his home with the original plans he handed me 2 bass wood blocks to form the floor and firewall.
They have never failed. My #7 sits high on rugged landing gear made of 3/32 aluminium which make it great for "off airport ops".

* 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.
