About this Plan

Beechcraft Baron. Radio control sport scale twin.

Quote: "Beechcraft's slick-looking twin in a .10 cu in. powered version that can be built from scratch or the House of Balsa kit.

IT HAD LONG BEEN my desire to build a small Baron. A thorough search of ali the local hobby shops revealed this fact: there is not a small Baron kit. What to do? To design from scratch would be too involved, so why not modify an existing kit? All the kits on the market anywhere close in appearance were researched, and finally I stumbled onto the House of Balsa Bonanza (oz8701) - Voila! That was it!

I purchased the kit and started the design work. The fuselage was perfect and needed only a nose block and normal straight tail. The wings would need to be stretched a bit, but all the ribs would be the same. The nacelles would be easy.

My first Baron had two .049s and a 2-channel radio. With ailerons, elevator and no throttle, it was not for the average pilot! A little more design work and the twin .10-powered Baron was born. It has four channels and is much easier to control on one engine.

The final Baron has great performance, and the loss of an engine does not create a wild emergency. The Baron is capable of most aerobatic maneuvers and has been loved by all who have flown it.

Construction. As the Baron can be made from scratch or the Houseof Balsa kit, a complete construction method will be discussed. A Baron sub-kit consisting of all ribs and the plastic canopy is available from the good folks at HOB..."

    see Wikipedia | search Outerzone


    ScaleType: This (oz9924) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.


    Notes:
    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechcraft_Baron
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
