About this Plan

Antares - Radio control sport model.

Quote: - "Compact size sport and stunt model: 54in span for .40 size motors... Having graduated from the Super-60 type of model to low-wing types via the Fun Tiger, I wanted something more streamlined and of a more contemporary shape, to suit my recently purchased O.S.4OP. I decided to design a model with as smooth a line as possible, in the current style, and Antares is the result. The model has proved to be responsive to all controls, without being touchy, and with a good 40 up front has turned out to be quite fast, managing to gain a third place in a couple of
local open pylon races. With a competent pilot in control it has also shown itself capable of flying through the FAI acrobatic schedule..."

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.
