About this Plan

Atomizer 1/2A Texaco - The original FF Atomizer model was designed by John Tatone in 1941. This here is a later RC version for 1/2A Texaco by Bob Aberle. Wingspan 47in, wing area 282 sq in.

Quote: "I was able to build exactly to the original plans outline, but the structure did require some changes, both in wood selection and sizing. The wing ended up with two main (top and bottom) spars made of 1/16 x 1/4 spruce. Don't cut corners here and use balsa, you will be sorry..."

Now I send you my photos, so you can put online with ATOMIZER plan ID=9033. I have built in 2015 the first model, as electric half Texaco, with span 60 inch (circa 150 cm) [more pics 003-005]. It flew so beautifully, so I decided to build another, much bigger, with span 100 inch (circa 250 cm), weight of 2000 gr. with battery [more pics 006-009]. It's a beautiful floater and landings are spot. They both fly beautifully. Never seen ATOMIZER at 100 inch, usually Texaco are scaled down, never seen half Texaco scaled up.... And yet is worth the job ! ! !

* 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.
