About this Plan

The Ethy. Free flight gas model. Wingspan 72 in (flat), wing area 731 sq in.

From Zaic 1938. CAD Jim O'Reilly 4-12-99.

Quote: "This plan was drawn at the suggestion of Don Bekins who spotted the 'Ethy' in the 1938 Zaic yearbook and recognized its potential. Don built the Ethy with provisions for interchangeable engines so that it can be flown in multiple events. Don has flown his with an Ohlsson 60 Sideport for ITS event and the Ohlsson 60 Front Rotary for C Ignition LER and Pure Antique. An Ohlsson Gold Seal is used for the Pure Texaco Special event and the Ignition Texaco event. A hot glow engine is planned for C LER Glow and Antique."

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

* 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.
