About this Plan

Early Riser - 100S Class themal soarer for two function radio using all flying V-tail.

Quote: "BY MAKING specific restrictions on the number of control functions, and on the maximum size of the models to be used, the 100S class of glider has brought truly competitive flying within the reach of all thermal flyers. The comparatively small size of the models keeps the airframe costs down and, with just two-function radio required, 100S soaring becomes one of the most economic of all r/c model classes. The Early Riser has a two-piece wing, making for easier transport, and uses a sliding servo mixer to obtain the correct-action on the all-moving tail surfaces. There is nothing unusual about building, so let's get right into the constructional side of things..."

* 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.
