About this Plan

Rollin Foam. Radio control sport biplane model for single channel. Wingspan 17-1/2 inches. Wing area 194 sq in. Uses the Ace constant chord foam wing.

Quote: "The Rollin'-Foam was designed around the Ace constant chord foam wing, one half of the panel for the upper wing and the other half for the lower wing. This measures up to a 171/2in span, .049 powered type of exciting rudder-only fun. Rollin'-Foam shapes up to flyability with no compromise, with simple but strong construction which has been proven in two years of flying with the original prototype. With all of its wild acrobatic flying, doing maneuvers I haven't yet named, it has only the usual minor dings and dents. One of its best accomplishments is a full roll on top of a loop.

Rollin'-Foam has lived up to its name and design parameters time and time again, and rudder-only has never been so much fun! She climbs out quickly between shennanigans, ready for the next flip of the rudder, and a show-off it is! The glide back home after the engine quits is somewhat like a pigeon with a cardiac arrest - fast but predictable - a Grand Esprit it ain't!

So, with a Cox Golden Bee or Black. Widow Engine, 6 or 7 bucks worth of wood and miscellaneous pieces, the dependable Ace Pulse Radio as always, R/C flying with only a flapping rudder makes for hours of fun and pleasure. Join us and have a ball... "

* 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.
