American Gyro AG-4 Crusader (oz907)
About this Plan
Crusader. Rubber powered scale model of the unorthodox 1935 twin-boom streamlined plane.
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 (oz907) 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/American_Gyro_AG-4_Crusader
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 commentsHello Steve, I'm currently building an enlarged 36in rc version of the Crusader at Wattflyer: http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69248 The plan is not 100% accurate, as there are some discrepancies between views, and the fuse former ears which create the wing farings do not place the wing at the correct location on the fuse, as the wing TE is located above the fuse bottom. Still, it is certainly a workable plan for creating the fuse and providing a good starting point. I have attached a photo of the main fuse, before the modifications began. Feel free to add it to the Crusader plan, as it will at least provide some photo of the construction.

* 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.
