About this Plan

Berkeley Impulse. Single channel radio control sport model. Perfect for pylon racing.

Quote: "I built the Impulse in 1965 and learned the importance of making sure that the escapement is fully wound. I spent about 30 white knuckle minutes trying to escape from a monster thermal. Great flier if built light. DaveA."

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

Photos of my new, as yet unflown Impulse, powered by a Red Finn .06 twin [model photo & more pics 004-006]. Rudder only with a modern 2.4 ghz radio. If test flights are successful, I will install a vintage Controlaire single channel radio with a compound escapement.

* 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.
