Arrowhead. Rubber driven flying wing model.
The Arrowhead plan appeared as part of the article "Tale of a Tailless", in Aeromodeller May 1955.
Quote: "We decided that we could have too much of a good thing in the way of washout, so the next design had only 7 degrees and to play safe, we used a flat bottomed section throughout.
This time we tried a low wing, and thought a cabin would look nice, so the result was 'Arrowhead'. Stability was in no way impaired and flights were very consistent indeed. The glide was better than the earliest design but being faster, due to the lower lift wing, the overall duration was about the same. They resulted in an attractive though unorthodox sport flier, plans of which are reproduced overleaf..."

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