Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Looking at two 1980’s AEROMODELLERS this time and coming up with a couple of very nice full size scale CO2 plans.

To the October 1980 edition with the cover featuring Japan’s T. Hara with his famous Super Hurricane design competing in the 1980 World Control Line Championship.

To the first scale CO2 plans for the 1912 FLANDERS F3. But for a Royal Flying Corps ban on monoplanes it would have seen service during WW1.

This is the work of W.D. BINNS who was taken with the original when he found the drawings in Kenneth Munson’s book Pioneer Aircraft.

Building should present no problems and trimming advice recommends the use of a small piece of ClingFilm for added stability.


Next to one of the classic fighter aircraft of WW1 the SOPWITH TRIPLANE.

J.R. LATHAM’s CO2 model certainly looks the part with construction as near to scale as possible including riblets.

I think to see a free flight Triplane puttering about at scale speed would be a delight. The designer says it has forgiving flight characteristics.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and DAVID OGILVY examines the PARNALL PIXIE.


Cheers

Algy

The Dornier 215 was 46" control line by Cesare Milan for a total of 4cc and came from the Aeromodeller May 1956.
I suppose you would like a scan?

There was a small jpg. put up ages ago on the vintage thread but it is too small to do anything with. It came from Aeromodeller but the jpg. is so small I can't read the date.

Another Dornier came from Model Aircraft - but again, I don't have a date. If I remember correctly, I had seen an advert. for it from a page of the Nov.1962 Model Aircraft... which leads me to believe that it was in a mag before that date??? I also think it was a Control Line model?

Gluehand and any other Swedes & Norwegians out there... Happy Mid-Sommer next Friday.
Later, Swankee

AeroMed... Good stuff! Thanks
Dornier 215 was in Aeromodeller May 1956. not an issue I have but the FF plans from it have already been posted by Algy. as it is a C/L model it was not included. Perhaps we can cajole Algy or RFJ into digging out that issue and posting a scan it the C/L thread

DO17 was the Aircraft described in Aeromodeller October 1969 and has already been posted by Algy http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=307

cannot find any Do17 plan in the MA index but as it is not complete it may have been published

Myhobbystore only has one Do17z plan which is for 5 function R/C. RSQ1624 - Dornier Do 17z obviously from a quaterly mag were the plan may either been the free full size plan or if not probably printed in a format to make it unsuitable for scanning. That is either overlaid, small low res reproduction or only partial part of plan shown.

Hey Kiwi -
Once again, Thanks for championing my cause. I would be grateful for an Algy or Kiwi Scan/post of the Dornier from May 1956.

Aeromeddeler - a.k.a. AeroMed - 'cuz we get Aeroplane Medicine from you... okay maybe that was weeney, but that is where that came from all the same.
Thanks for your precision on who, what and where.
Also - F.Y.I. I think the info I got about the MA mag was from you in one form or another - once again... "if memory serves"... I believe you had posted a control line Hurricane (maybe) from a 1962 MA and it had listed other CL aircraft from Model Aircraft mag. The Dornier Do.17 was in that list.
Maybe I just dreamed it... which would just be wierd.
It could be that it is Friday and I'm tilting back some ice cold Anchor Steam all the way from San Francisco. It's a darn good brew and if you can get your hands on it... get some.
Later, Swankee

Dornier 215

This is a bit out of my order but as I have the Do215 completed I thought it would be a good post for this weekend. I remember it being really good fun to draw up - especially the cabin detail in the middle. So, from the May 1956 Aeromodeller here is the Dornier 215 designed by Ceaser Milani who was well known for his scale models at the time. Just look at the detail in the article and it is easy to see why.

This model spans 44" and was designed around two ED 3.46 Hunters equipped with throttles. I can only imagine that they were the long stroke engines which are really nice engines, extremely tractable and reliable.

As always my disclaimer about being tracings of the original scans but, because of the detailed plan, this is much more relevant. Most of all enjoy.

Al

ARGHHHHHH C/L model in the free flight thread whatever next RTP, RC BOATS!!!!!!.

Never mind Hogal as its such a nice plan we will forgive you this time. I expect you were dreaming of getting together $250,000 to buy a nice new Brough Superior or just feeling down at not being able to see the Norton at the senior TT.

I saw the bit about the Brough on the television and very nice it was too. Those new Norton's look really nice to - and they do one in yellow and black (colours for which I am a sucker). Not to worry just keep on dreaming. I've already booked for next years TT - maybe the Norton's will start to replicate the glories of the past!!!

Thanks for forgiving me as well but I may get another telling off for talking motorbikes

Don't see any problem talking about "retrieval vehicles". Got to ride a Triumph Cub when I was a younger (1960's). IIRC, it was a sweet ride. Saw one restored at a hot rod ralley, few years ago. It was forsale, but it was still definitely outside of my means!

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To the January 1993 AEROMODELLER and on the cover is David Barker with his 1941 Bernie Gross “TOUCHE” flying wing.

Two full size free flight plans to pass along the first being CHRIS EDWARD'S “FORTUNE” a pleasant 24 inch low wing model for “baby” diesels.

Ideal for small field flying it could easily be adapted to CO2 or electric.


Next was PERSEY by AL BACKSTROM an intriguing model for tailless fans.

Al said the layout was actually inspired by the Zanonia seed. For rubber power construction is traditional stick and tissue.


Cheers

Algy

Hogal, you'd be best to stay out of NTC! Otherwise, there will not be any taxi cabs left!

Aeromeddler,

Thanks for posting the plans! I might give the Holste Broussard a go and make it RC. I just ran across one for sale on ebay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1957-...item4604abc04a

The model will be much more within my price range!

Thanks again!
