Sal Taibi with one of his kit XB-70's. Might have been the Dallas Nats in 64.

Even though I like to browse through the plans here and download them, I am dismayed that this ONE plan amounts to more than 20 megs, when it shouldn't be more than 2 or 3 megs. Simply because a person can bypass the PDF file size limit doesn't make it right, especially for viewers accessing this forum via low-bandwidth connections.

I'd suggest not abusing the system in this manner, before site SysAdmins decide to simply delete these excessively large files.

Whoa! Some absolutely beautiful plans in there. Thanks for posting. I'll take that kind of abuse any day

Luckyducky - it's not one plan, it's ten.

Well if you like the plans you really ought to take some time to view the videos:
Langatonta Lennatysta
Salakka
Tiira Lennokit 1
Tiira Lennokit 2
Vesivempeleet
to see the planes in action. Wonderful videos that are evocative of all that's good and traditional about real aeromodelling. All in a wonderful setting.
Sorry they won't be for you Luckyducky - they are truly large files 50Mb plus.

You'd also need "Photoshop" Luckyducky as the zipped files are in Tiff format.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To the December 1994 AEROMODELLER with the cover showing Wendy and Sara Kneebone holding a West Wings Olympian and Topaz with the Sapphire on the ground in front..

Firstly to ALEX IMRIE’s Vintage Corner Colum where a rare one indeed is featured. It is the Skyscout rubber duration model from 1935. Of 28 inch wingspan the article tells of the tracking down of the plan and the discovery that full-size drawings were available.

Next to a scale profile rubber model of the SOPWITH 1.Ĺ STRUTTER by TREVOR FALKNER.

It’s simple to build and Trevor said it is the ideal introduction to a profile bipe.

Finally to one of the models featured on the cover. This is the attractive TOPAZ by PETER SHEPPARD.

Topaz is a high wing sports model that is equally at home flying in or outdoors. Once again make efforts to build lightly and good flying model will be yours..



Cheers

Algy

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Staying in the 90ís and the January 1990 edition of Aeromodeller.
The cover shows Japanís HIROMITSU YOKOE with his own-design Kawasaki Hein Gold Trophy entry in the 1989 UK Control Line Championships.

To the full size foldout plan and itís JIM LATHAMíS neat between-wars HENKEL HE51 Fighter.

To scale, for CO2 power, this really is an attractive subject of conventional construction to give a light but strong model.

Jim said if flown in right hand circles under power and glide itís a docile performer.

Next to AIRCRAFT DESCIBED and the very acrobatic YAK 55 with PETER Lloydsí superb drawings and full details.

Cheers

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To the April 1985 Aeromodeller where as the cover states it was a special Tiger Moth issue.

It contained a special feature on building both of the Aeromodeller Tiger Mothe plans both of which have been posted before. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...4&postcount=29 and here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=316

Also in this issue was a simple 171/2 inch span rubber powered model by RICHARD PRESTON.

This was PLACID an attractive one piece cabin model that Richard said is very stable and forgiving in flight.

Next to the full size fold out plan for MINI MAGNET by PETER DOLBY.

It’s a lightweight magnetic steered glider something I have never seen but only read about before.

The article explains how it works. I believe it is popular in the UK and Europe.

Peter said it the model is easy to build and trim out on a calm day but warns that this form of model flying is addictive. Fascinating stuff.

To a very very early form of free flight the BOOMERANG. The original stone age designer's name was not recorded but it was developed in various forms in a few countries and still with us today.

MICHAEL HANSON invites you to go walkabout with this practical approach to the Boomerang.

Trimming is exciting and if you get it right you will never be able to get rid of it.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and the De Havilland D 82A TIGER MOTH by STUART McKAY secretary of the UK MOTH CLUB.

It really is a detailed look which I have had to split into to PDF files.

Cheers

Algy

Interestingly the cover picture of the Tiggie was also used for the July 2002 Flying Scale Models, then published by Model Activity Press. Apparently a 1970's painting by Laurie Bagley.

Dornier plans

Hey Folks,
I hope everybody is doing well.
Wanted to throw out a quick request for Dornier Do.17 and/or Do.215 plans.

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
