DH Fox Moth (oz9026)
About this Plan
DH.83 Fox Moth. Scale model for eithger free flight or radio control. Scale is 1/8.
Quote: "It is rather surprising that the De Havilland Fox Moth has been overlooked by aeromodellers, as it presents the classic DH lines with many built-in features that guarantee stability and lots of room for the radio control installation.
A little research with the local Aviation Historical Society will provide colour scheme details and for those modellers who had access to the Shuttleworth Collection there was the beautifully restored Fox Moth G-ACEJ in black with gold trim, alas now cremated.
The model described here has been developed through two prototypes and both have performed well in competition as well as flying wise. The second model has won the New Zealand National Championships and Provincial Championships. Its longest flight as a free flight model was over 40 minutes in a succession of thermals. It was finally recovered some seven miles away from the take-off area.
Construction is fairly simple, although there is a lot of it. Full detail is shown on the plan but the following information may help to whet your appetite..."

ScaleType: This (oz9026) 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/De_Havilland_Fox_Moth
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.

User commentsExactly it's a D.H. 83 Fox Moth, it seems no mention about engine size.
