About this Plan

Astro Hog - classic RC stunt model. This is the legendary model that got RC aerobatics off the ground in 1957. The first successful low-wing RC model, it took top 4 places at the 58 Nationals. Kitted by Berkeley.

Update 24/04/2013: Have split this plan into 2 sheets to make printing it out a bit more practical. Thanks to ColinSharpe for pointing this one out.

Corrections?

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction

Hi Steve, I just test flew my Astro Hog, electric powered. Here's a picture for the gallery [more pics 004].

Your plans illustrate the balancing location for "control line" flying, no dimensions are shown for radio controlled flying. Can't find those balancing dimensions anywhere, even on other web sites.

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.
