By the venerable Sal Taibi! For a Perris event contest Sal's newest model, The Perris Special, was designed with several Perris regular flyers in mind. Some liked a lot of ribs, some liked simple construction, etc., and Sal threw all the influences in to the model. What he came up with is a model with a fuselage that has the silhouette of a Brooklyn Dodger, the wing and stab of a Starduster, and a unique rudder. Put that all together and you have a darn high performing model.

Designed by Sal Taibi. Probably his last design, and named for Perris Field, where his club, the SCAMPS met weekly for fun flying, socializing and coffee and donuts.

Appeared in first Perris (California) contest event in 2005, probably designed in 2004 for this contest.

I have 2 photos of the Perris Special plan just uploaded [model photo & more pics 003, 004]. It was designed by Sal Taibi in 1998(?), the date is on the wing. I know it's a 1990s design - an aeromodelling friend build it at the time. He corresponded with the designer, Sal Taibi, and so had gotten the plan from him after having met on a Middle Wallop flying meeting. The plan was just a sketch, and not published at the time or ever drawn up as real plan. The Perris Special was a simplified version of the Brooklyn Dodger by the same designer. The photos I must have made around year 2000, at the Raynes Park Model Aircraft Club.

Thank you to everyone who contacted us to say that Sal Taibi designed the Perris Special: Pit, Anon, Joost, Simon Blake, Mike Hollamby & Jeff Green. I'm only slowly catching up with email after our week away - I apologise if you were wondering why your name hadn't appeared yet.

Added photo of "the guru Sal Taibi launching his Perris Special", thanks to Pit [more pics 005].

I've forgotten where or when I pulled these photos off the Internet [more pics 006,007]. The first photo was saved as "Sal Taibi launches his newest design, the Perris Special" [more pics 005, also submitted by Pit].

Is the CG indicated? I can't see it on the plans. Do you have any idea where it should be? Thanks.
DaveSurry - 15/04/2018
CG location will be about 45% behind the leading edge. The stab has a lifting airfoil so that accounts for the rearward lift point. Suggest starting about 40% back to be safe and gradually move the CG rearward as you trim.

* 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.
