About this Plan

Pilatus Porter - Radio control scale model. Wingspan 75in, for .40 - .60 power. Veco .61 shown. Plan also includes drawings of floats and skis.

Quote: - "Here's one more from Uncle Willies. Years ago, back about 1972, I had an original copy of this plan out of Germany. Drawn by B. Huber and sold through FMT as I recall.
Unfortunately, during a move it and so many more "fell off the truck" in transit. Well, we all know what that phrase really means.
Anyway, these files were available through Uncle Willie for a short time so I snagged a set. Of particular interest to me were the functioning landing gear and LE slatted flaps. Considerable effort went into the drawings... Cheers,"

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.
