About this Plan

Lockheed U2 - Radio control scale model, for tractor prop with .15 to .19 power.

Quote: - "Multi RC Scale High-flying Spy in the Sky...
Looking around for something a little different, for an out of the rut fun type R/C model, I thought a model based on the U-2 would look good. When seen, everyone knows it's a U-2 in spite of the fact that many changes were made from the scale drawings, to make a simple easily built model.
The plug-in wings look complicated, but are easier to build and provide more room in the fuselage than using a tongue. The tubing in fact becomes root spars, adding to the strength of the wings. Also it's great not to have to worry about where to put a six foot wing, when traveling.
Without an engine, fuel tank, wheels, engine servo and the battery moved into a filled in nose, you have the mak-ings of a good slope soarer, for those who like floating on a breeze.
Wing Construction: Cut out all ribs, being especially careful drilling the holes in the plywood ribs for the tub-ing. Use a %2" dia. drill for this... "

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.
