About this Plan

Robbe Zenit. Radio control glider model for 2 channels. Wingspan 1730mm.

Quote: "Hi Outerzone team, recently I stumbled over pictures of old Robbe 'Zenit' all-balsa two axis RC-glider. After some emails back and forth I managed to get hold of an original plan, however cut into multiple pieces. After some scanning and digital puzzle work I managed to rearrange the scanned pieces to something what seems to come close to the original plan. See attached.
There is only little information available related to said glider. Robbe presented the Zenit to the market presumably in 1974 - see here: http://wiki.rc-network.de/index.php/Zenit_von_Robbe - and sold it around 1980.
In the attached ZIP file there is also added a 1976 catalogue photo with the relevant technical data as given by the manufacturer.
The owner of the plan fragments has agreed to publishing the scanned plan ...you might be interested to publish the attached one as well. It would be my pleasure, and I hope my digital reconstruction work is of benefit for other aviation modellers as well. Please let me know. Greetings, Stefan"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

* 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.
