About this Plan

Douglas A-26 Invader - Scale twin WWII American attack bomber, for control line.

Quote: "Don Deeley selected the A26a Invader as a natural for twin engined control-line. Fitted with a pair of Elfin 1.49's his prototype has covered many miles at scale appearance speed of 45-50mph and we have no doubt that two smaller or larger engines would provide equal entertainment at a slight variance in speed is both robust and simple. All-up weight of 40oz is enough to require extra tough control line wires, yet at the same time does not provide an over-heavy wing loading..."

* 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.
