About this Plan

Zeitgeist - Radio control glider model. Wing area 440 sq in.

Quote: - "Zietgeist was originally designed as a rudder only model using a Minimac receiver and Elmic Conquest escapement, and completed many hours of flying in this mode. After experiments with wings of various areas and configurations, the design as presented here seems optimum. Further flying has been carried out with the Galloping Ghost system, using the Controlaire Ghost actuator and the elevator used is shown in the drawings..."

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.
