About this Plan

Sopwith Bee. Radio control indoor scale model for electric power. Construction is 0.5mm depron foam.

Quote: - "Harry Hawker's aerobatic aircraft, 1917. Designed and drawn by Mike Roach. 1/13th scale for 0.5mm depron construction and Falcon RC gear. Weight with PU02 and 2 cells 55 grams, with PU05 and one cell, 45 grams."

Note: This plan is one of a series posted on RCGroups by the designer, Mike Roach (SopwithMike) himself. See I checked with Mike and asked if he was happy for us to host copies of these plans, here on Outerzone: He said: "Hi Steve, I would be very happy for any of the plans I put up on the free thread to be put on the Outerzone site. I'm a great admirer of the site, have visited it often for inspiration and it's one of the reasons I have offered my own plans free to copy. I'm hoping Steve85 will be offering short kits at some stage. If anyone has comments on any of the plans, I'd be very happy to amend drawing for future builders. All the plans are hand drawn, so there will be the odd error and ommision! Best wishes, Mike"


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.
