About this Plan

Junior Telemaster - Radio control sport trainer model for .09 to .19 power. Wingspan 48-1/4, wing area 400 sq in. Discontinued kit plan from Hobby Lobby.

Quote: "Junior Telemaster Building Notes.

Building the Wing. Because the Jr has a flat bottom wing, the wing panels are built right over the plans. Since the entire wing plan is provided, both of the wing panels are built at the same time. The right and left wing panels are not glued together however, until the center tapered section is added to build in the proper dihedral.

With the plans covered with wax paper and fastened to a flat building board, pin down and glue the leading edges, bottom leading edge sheeting, bottom trailing edge sheeting bottom center section sheeting and bottom cap stripping. Apply glue to the length of the lower wing spar and position on the bottom leading edge sheeting using tip and root ribs as locating jigs and pin securely in place. Glue all ribs in position followed by gluing on the trailing edge and top wing spar pieces. Carefully bevel the top of the trailing edge to conform to the wing airfoil. Now glue and install the top trailing edge sheeting, top leading edge sheeting,top center section sheeting and top cap stripping. Note that the outside edge of the tip rib cap stripping should be flush with the outside face of the tip ribs.

Remove both wing panels from the building board and using a flat sanding block, sand the face of the tip and root ribs and sheeting flush. Glue the triangular tip blocks place, positioning the bottom edge of triangle stock even with the bottom edge of the tip rib bottom cap stripping.

Use epoxy to glue the tapered stock to the root rib on one wing panel. The thicker edge should be toward the bottom side of the wing panel and aligned with the bottom edge of the rib. Then cut and sand the top edge of the tapered stock to the rib contour. Using 5 minute epoxy, glue both wing panels together. Make sure that the leading and trailing edge of the wing panels are properly aligned.

Sand the leading edge to the shape as shown on the wing side view. As the wing tips are sanded to the wing contour they will automatically achieve the proper curve as shown on the plans top view. Use 3-4 oz glass cloth and resin to rein-force the top and bottom sides of the wing center section.

Mark the bottom side of the aileron stock and cut the ailerons to the proper length. Drill the hole for the aileron torque rod in the leading edge of each aileron and sand the tip end to the proper shape... "

Plan includes hand-traced formers, with notes.

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.
