For a combat plane, I think the best would be a modern F2D plane. They work good with a .15 or .25 motor. Check the F2D FAI sites for plans. No really uses plans any more because the planes are so cheap in the RTF form. $50 or so. They are pretty tough in a crash too, although they don't usually escape from midairs. Someone will maybe chime in on them.

Here is a copy of a late model combat wing(armageddon 2004). I have one I built. Its easy to fly flat and level if you are used to something fairly fast, when you pull on the up or down they turn like something awesome. Great fun with two in the circle.
I run a Parra 2.5 engine in mine. There are more on the hippocket site.

I'm from the Flight Streak Fox .35 era.
I'm badly out of touch with CL and would like to get back in.
I'm presently building a Peace Maker to get back into U/C.
Thanks

Plenty of combat models of all ages on Hip Pocket.

Thank you gentlemen.
More than enough to get me started.
I have a Cox Conquest and Parra 2.5 and just got a roll of Doculam.
My Peace Maker, empty is coming in around 12 oz, maybe too heavy for a .15?
I think I better take it easy for the first few flights, like perhaps my old Flight Streak and Fox .35 on 60 ft lines. Really looking forward to a change with U/C.
Thanks again.
John

Sounds good John,

12 oz of Peacemaker presumably 6oz oz engine & fuel = 18oz

Should give very spritely performance.

Combat Flite Streak

I tried the tutorials in Outerzone - Didn't take too long to turn a really ugly old, well-tanned plan into a properly scaled version.

Hegi 40

Hello everyone !

I have a question: do someone have a kit for a HEGI 40 and could scan the Parts ?
Because the plan is just how to get it together, and no parts drawn.

here is a pic of an old catalogue :
http://www.rc-network.de/forum/attac...0&d=1343763178
it is the one in the lower left corner

Best regards, Sebastian

Thanks Keeferm.
I built one of those years ago and flew it with an Enya .29.

I don't think the Modelhob MiG-3 has been posted here before.
I reduced file size a bit from the copy that was on HPA.
(the picture is a small preview)

The Combat Streak was my first .35 sized control liner. Was fun for a 14 year old boy with a new 6 dollar McCoy .35. A quart of K&B fuel was a buck and a half !Plus a buck and a quarter for a 1-1/2 old dry cell. My paper route had no problems sponsoring me for this great hobby back then.

Napier-Heston Racer
Also known as Heston Type 5 Racer or Heston High Speed Aircraft J.5 (and probably a few other designations)

This plan seems to be John Emmett's design originally published in Aeromodeller, August 1989. I'm not sure if it is just a scan or if someone has worked on the plan after scanning.

21" span
Designed for electric power over the lines. "540-550" motor, 6x3 prop at 18000rpm, 7 to 12 meter lines.

I-Baga 14

This is an absolutely original model, both in construction method and aerodinamic.
Note the engine offset, it was designed to fly slow but precise.
This model placed 10th at World Champs in 1966 and 68.
I have 23 A4 pdf files that joined together should give the full size plan.
The zip file is worth 13 Mb.
Should someone be interested send your e mail.
