I remember, a long time ago, helping someone who had built one of these. I remember thinking that it flew *pretty well. That's surprising, considering that it had a cheap, direct drive, ferrite can motor and nicads. These days, of course, it would be easy to add a lot more power, and make it lighter at the same time. However, I don't think having excess power suits the character of the model. If you want to do aerobatics, build something else. A little more power would probably be a good thing, though. *When interpreting "pretty well", remember that I'm a glider flyer.

* 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.
