About this Plan

Titewad - Radio control sport serobatic model for .15 to .25 power.

Quote: - "The airplanes we build and fly tend be products of our personal philosophy, in my case, I like airplanes that are easy build, of simple construction, and have relatively small engines - all leading to low cost. I have never been called a spendthrift! Titewad is a design that makes the most of the above parameters: it is easy to build and fly, uses simple construction techniques, and is a miser on fuel.
The predecessor of Titewad was a forty-powered bird with similar force arrangements and its performance was nothing short of excellent, but it had one flaw. It to drank fuel. Even at one-third throttle, where it did most of its flying, it used more go juice than engines in the .19 to .25 range. Titewad corrects this flaw. Although there is no way a smaller airplane can duplicate the performance of a larger one (unless someone knows how to shrink air molecules), Titewad comes as close as possible to performing like a larger bird. When flown at full bore this airplane will do all of any pattern, AMA or FAI, not as well as a full-blown pattern ship but well enough for a practice plane; and when the throttle is brought back to one-third or less, Titewad is still a solid machine..."

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.
