About this Plan

Top Dawg Electric. Radio control sport model. This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format, a redesign of the Ken Willard Top Dawg (oz901) classic, for electric power.

There is a build thread on RCGroups, see https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?1312209...

Quote: "Guys and Ladies, Here is my latest project. I redesigned the classic Ken Willard 'Top Dawg', and have it all framed out. I kept all of the original dimensions and outlines, but went for an easy to build and strong structure. Only real mod was moving the stab to the top of the fuse, as it looks a LOT better there, and adding ailerons.

This one is powered with a NeoDym 480-1000kV motor, 3 cell 2600 Lipo, propped for 325 watts. Landing gear is standard Great Planes unit, and the wheel pants are E-Flite Pitts Special units. It will be covered in White Ultracote or Pearl White Monokote with Metal Flake Red Solarfilm and Flat Black Monokote a-la Hotrod style. I plan to have it at Toledo, entered in the Nostalgia class."

Hi Steve. Here's two photos of the Top Dawg [see more pics 003 and 004]. I have fly with it. It's a very difficult plane to fly. But once you know how he flies it's a good plane. Greetings.

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.
