2 Perfection (oz9073)
About this Plan
2 Perfection - Radio control Class II competition model.
Quote: "RCM presents the top Class II plane in the country. William E Thomas's 1967 Nationals' winning II Perfection.
HAVE you ever stood spellbound at an airshow and watched as one of the great acrobatic pilots flash past working his routine II Perfection? Very few sights can offer the same thrill. I think of the pattern as similar to an artist and his painting - very beautiful to look at, but only the artist himself, can feel the fleeting, electrifying thrill of the masterpiece he created. I experience this thrill each time I complete a good pattern, land and taxi back the big difference being that, unlike the full-scale acrobatic pilot, my feet never leave the ground.
So for all acrobatic champs, II Perfection is my contribution to help you attain the same thrill that I experience each time I fly. At this time I would like to acknowledge the contributions made by my wife and my family and my many friends, without whose cooperation and encouragement this development would have been impossible. Having been eaten alive by my first two Class III airplanes, I naturally turned to Class II to try to bridge the gap from rudder only.
Having built and flown about everything that would fly Class II, I was still unhappy with many of the characteristics of the available Class II airplanes. II Perfection is the culmination of a long and diligent search for a Class II airplane that handles very well in strong wind as well as in calm air. To many this means nothing, but to we who live in Oklahoma it means hanger flying through most of the spring and early summer because of extremely windy weather.
Every good plane needs a heart of gold, and for this I use my most prized posses-sion (other than my wife and children) and that is my Logictrol 11-5. In two full years of flying I have not experienced a single failure. Match the components with a Veco 61 and you have a winning combination!
I would like to say that this plane won the 1966 Nationals as well as the 1967 Nat's, but due to an unfortunate experience while I was completing my pattern (like a transmitter turned on on my frequency), I lost II Perfection and had to fall back on one of my older airplanes to finish the contest season and fly at Genview..."

* 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.
