About this Plan

Tempo - High performance A-1 towliner develped for use with the Benedek airfoil and Jedelsky thin wing construction.

Quote: "Tempo is the result of a series of models or combinations or wings and tails. No fancy, exotic contruction was employed in the model at all, a simple fuselage and rubber model type stabilizer and, of course, the Jedelsky type wing; and easy, rugged A-1 glider to be flown in any contest and most weather. One evening was all that was required to completely finish the wing. An entire weekend for the complete model and we were ready to fly!

Since the wing construction is the basis for this entire article, let's start here. Pick very soft, light balsa for the forward piece and fairly stiff, quarter grained balsa for the aft..."

* 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.
