Miss Cosmic Wind (oz9009)
About this Plan
Miss Cosmic Wind. Radio control stand-off scale design for .60 displacement engines. Wingspan 58in, wing area 550 sq in.
Quote: "With the advent of R/C Formula I racing, many of those pretty little Goodyear racers have been brought to the forefront once again and most of them have plenty of potential as good subjects for a sport-scale R/C ship. Their proportions are just about excellent to yield a stable and fine flying model and those cheek cowls are a natural to hide any .60 size engine with provisions for more than adequate cooling. The wide as-sortment of sparkling color schemes will certainly bring a few moments of critical acclaim from any scale judge's scanning eye.
My interest in the Cosmic Wind was sort of initiated by a great looking Cosmic Wind Minnow (oz4214) controline kit that Berkeley made during the early 50's. I was just about getting ready to build that kit when I got started in R/C and proceeded off in a different vein. Needless to say, the R/C equipment in those days barely controlled a free-flight much less anything of this nature, so I progressed through the escapements, reeds and finally the modern day proportional radios. All it took was going to the Reno National Air Races a few years, where the Cosmic Winds still race, and my interest was kindled once again. With the radios available and a little expertise picked up over the years, I decided it was time to make my own Cosmic Wind. So here goes!
Wing Construction. Start with the wing first. Cut out the foam cores with the supplied templates. Glue on the 1/4 x 1/2 in balsa trailing edge and sand it to shape. Use some masking tape over the foam to protect it while you're sanding the balsa..."

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 (oz9009) 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.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeVier_Cosmic_Wind
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.

* 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.
