About this Plan

Two Ber. Unlimited / Wakefield rubber competition model.

Quote: "If you are already a proficient model builder and crack up gas jobs the way I do, then try building a rubber one for a change. (You experts need read no further.) I build all types, but have so much success with the Two-Ber that I can almost always count on being in contention in a rubber event. The Two-Ber now holds the open and senior records in Unlimited Rubber. Ronnie Young flew the Wakefield ship to a senior Unlimited record - his first rubber job.

I wanted a simple Wakefield ship with a minimum of gimmicks and developed the first Two-Ber with a dual-pin position for various motors. This ship qualified for the Wakefield elims the last two years and was high time in the 1961 qualification trials at Sepulveda, California. I realized that too many of the rubber ships flown in the Unlimited event are overpowered Wakefields. The Unlimited rules allow up to 300 square inches of wing area, so why not help that glide? I added sixty more square inches to the wing in the center, a little larger stab, used light materials, more power, and a larger prop for a better prop-power combination - and wow, what a difference! It climbs fast and steep for forty-five - fifty seconds, and outfloats the Wakefield by far... "

* 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.
