About this Plan

Star-Trek - Radio control sport pattern model, for .60 power.

Quote: - "How many of us have sat and dreamed about an airplane that would fly any of the patterns, be fairly inexpensive, reap praise from our flying buddies, and best of all, be extremely quick to build? If this thought is up your alley, then read on cause you're gonna' love this... Before we get started, run over to your magazine pile, dig through your old copies of Dewey's Dramatics (RCM's) and drag out your October '68 and September '70 issues. Turn to pages 46 and 47 respectively and read all the poop that Chuck Cunningham and Dr Ralph Leidner have to put out. If you've gotten this far then you needn't read any more of my trash, just dig out the wood 'n glue, clean that half finished Banshee with the crooked wing off the bench, (which, seriously, is what I did) and get after it. If you're not done in two weeks, you're hurtin'. (Took me a month.) Before you read any further, get out an envelope and stamp, and dash off an order to either Hobby Lobby in Brentwood, Tennessee, or to the Lanier factory for a Jester hard skin wing with conventional gear retract cutouts (tail dragger). These wings are already covered, have spars, tips, and gear braces installed, and for $19.95 can't be beat. The airfoil is the old Citron design which was one of the first triple taper wings used. Lanier has used this wing for as long as I can remember and anyone who has flown one can attest to its handling qualities. Enough on the wing for now, though. Get that order in the mail, and while you're waitin' for it to come, get started on the fuselage... "

Note this plan uses the Pink Panther (oz9412) fuselage design.

Note this plan uses the "Lanier Jester" foam wing. Root template on side elevation shows a symmetrical airfoil.

Quote: - "New scans from magazine. Cleaned. Stitched. Rebuilt geometry in interpage gap using IPG for reference. Restored text."

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.
