About this Plan

Bolero - Radio control glider model.

Quote: "An ideal introduction to slope, thermal or even power-assisted soaring... designed to fulfil a variety of roles; it simply takes too much time, money and storage to build special-purpose gliders, even though they may be desirable! It had to be able to function as a slope soarer for windy occasionas, a flat site 'thermal' soarer for those calmer days, and be able to fly as a power-assisted glider on those liftless or more rare, windless, days. In addition something more elegant than a simple box glider was required, without going to all the trouble of a planked fuselage..."

Bolero, Aeromodeller, January 1974.

* 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.
