Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,

This time looking at the August 1989 AEROMODELLER with the cover showing just three of the fine models taking part in the UK Nationals that year.

The first free flight model plan was featured in an depth article by J.P. VAN LEUWIN on his search for the four minuet Chine equipped Wakefield.

The article was “Wake UP” and the model is MAXINA 11.

Next a delightful Vintage glider. This is DOOFA by DAVID HUGHES featured as a full size plan.

It dates from 1947 and is designed for all-but-calm conditions with lightweight construction and low aspect ratio wings.

It sports an unusual wing airfoil section but I would not alter it. Dave lost three DOOFA’S OOS so it works well. The D/T is the swinging weight type.

Finally another Vintage glider this time from the ALEX IMRIE'S VINTAGE CORNER .

WINKLER JUNIOR was designed by HORST WINKLER for students to build following the introduction of Aero modelling into German schools in the mid 1930’s.

Wonder how that would go now?




Cheers

"Bell Models" has been posting John Bell FF Scale plans over at the HPA site.

Here's two of my favorites, so far: 23" span Supermarine Seafire 17 and 21 15/16" Supermarine Spiteful/Seafang. Plans include parts templates and various notes on the building process and the original aircraft.

There's more where these came from...

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi

'Back to the 1980,s with the July 1984 edition of AEROMODELLER. The cover features the delightful Sue McGiven posing with JOHN O’ DONNELL’s CO2 duration design covered in “Melinex” and powered by a Telco Turbotank.

The first free flight plan was for GRASSHOPPER. This was J.B. ALLMAN’s entry in the 1934 UK Wakefield Contest.

It’s a fascinating looking model worth building for the undercarriage alone. It also features a step up gear box to give a very long motor run. Detailed instructions are given for building both the model and the gearbox though I am not sure where you would source the gears theses days. With the long fuselage it could easily be flown with a normal single motor.

Next to the free full size plan for yet another “Mini Vintage” CO2 model. This time the VICKING which first took to the air in 1940.

JOHN WATTERS reduced his to 243/4 inch wingspan and came up with a great flying model of simple lightweight construction. It would easily convert to electric power.

Finally to a top competition tow line glider AC36 by TONY CORDES.

In “Experts Forum” Tony gives an in depth look at the subject and offers much useful information to would be builders and flyers of these models.



Cheers

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Staying in the 80s and the April 1989 AEROMODELER with the cover featuring KEN TANSLEY and his fine twice-size Keil Kraft BANDIT.

To the first full size free flight plan FILIBUSTA by ANDREW LONGHURST.

FILIBUSTA is an 183/4 inch wingspan all sheet sports rubber model ideal for getting beginners involved in the hobby.

It actually a 2/3 version of a 1947 design so sort of Vintage as well.

Andrew gives very detailed building and flying instructions and says it is a fine flyer.

Next to JUDGE FOR YOURSELF the work of G.F. ELSWGOOD.

This is a 20 inch miniature of the Vintage 1936 A.A. JUDGE WAKEFIELD winner and ideal for small field fun.

The plan once again is full size and the model would look charming circling overhead with the sun shinning through the covering

I have previously posted a very similar plan and that can be found here.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=222

While the original size plan posted by AEROMEDDLER can be found here.

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=222

Lastly to DAVE HIPPERSON and FREE FLIGHT SCENE.

Dave updates his very successful open rubber design SKYWALKER with SKYWALKER Mk2.


Cheers

A plan from 1943
The Elite No 1 Glider. 30"span F/F
Designed by R H Warring and redrawn by George Stringwell, then all the scanned bits stuck together by SteveWMD (I asked him ever so nicely) as my 'puter skills are optimistically termed "poor"!

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,

To the October 1987 issue of AEROMODELLER in our search for free flight plans.

The cover shows JOHN ROBERT’S lovely Laser powered control line Bristol 77 at the 1987 Old Warden Scale weekend.

If your tired of chasing your tail around the flying field the first model is for you. It hasn’t got one.

The in depth article “Terry Tailless Never Forgets “ by ANDREW LONGHURST takes you into the world of tailless model aircraft past and present.

It also features the W.BINNS design from 1941 TERRY 1 as an example and gives full trimming details.

Andrew said Terry1 is fabulous fun and it’s appearance in the air is a real conversation stopper .

Next to Fizz Power and a full size scale plan for a Jetex British Aerospace E.A.P.

The article gives all the details but I guess most can now only dream about flying such a model with Jetex engines showing no signs of ever coming back onto the market again.

Finally to another whimsical model from the design board of RAY MALSTROM in the form of SKYCAR.

Once again the plan to build this rubber powered sports model Biplane is full size and it is surprising how well these oddities by Ray Malmstrom fly.


Cheers

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
This time it’s the May 1989 edition of AEROMODELLER with the cover featuring BOB PRESNELL’S FOUND CENTENNIAL. The plan was inside.

But first to things that flap and AL BACKSTROM’S SWALLOWTAIL a sort of scale rubber BUTTERFLY.

It is not a ornithopter being easier to build and trim out. Bob said he was inspired by Cleveland kit and designed a simpler profile model.

It is easy to build from the full size plan and you can have fun with the decorations.

To the free full size fun scale plan for the FOUND CENTENNIAL by ROB PRESNELL.

Based on a WALT MOONEY design it has a useful wingspan of 38 ¾ inches and is capable of a good performance.It looks great decorated in red and white against the blue sky.


Cheers

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
This time it’s the February 1994 issue of AEROMODELLER with the cover sporting a photo of the then World Champ MIKE FANTHAM after his FIA win in the USA.

A couple of free flight plans to be found in this issue with the first taking us back over 100 years.

It’s the 1907 CLARKE FLIER with JOHN WHITE investigating the work of one of the very early pioneers and RFT model makers. Yes there has always been RTF’s even in the early days.

John also made a 36 inch wingspan version of the 60 inch original which once trimmed flew so well it was lost in the high canopy of a nearby wood.

The original model is in the National Aeronautical Collection of the Science Museum London UK.

Next to a case of fact being stranger then fiction with FORRAY by MIKE PARKER.

FORRAY is a unusual tail first biplane inspired by the whimsical designs of RAY MALSTOM.

The build article and full size plans have all the details.


Cheers



Algy.

I straightened the fuselage and added some missing bits.
Hope this helps.
