Hi All,
Looking for plan by Bill Dennis of his ff Bristol 77, I think it appeared in
the May 87 Aeromodeller. It was the same size as his Sopwith Swallow,
about 25" span, which appeared in the Dec 87 issue.
Thanks in anticipation!
John

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
To the March 1995 edition of AEROMODELLER with the cover showing a scale McDonnell Douglas XF85 for electric round the pole operation.

One free flight plan in this issue and it’s full size and scale.

It’s the perennially popular CESSNA BIRD DOG for electric power designed by JOHN WATTERS.

John has produced a charming model for free flight scale enthusiasts with no complicated parts that is an excellent flier.


Cheers

Has the McDonnell Douglas XF85 for electric round the poles operation been posted anywhere? Looks like with today's small ducted fan units it might be adaptable to free flight.

Model Aircraft ME 109 by Stan Cole for .5 cc diesels

Just had another play with the CS3 and this plan of Stan Coles ME 109. It would appear that he liked the 109 having done another version in Model Aircraft for the DC Dart.
This is one I'd like to have a go at at some time. Then again low wing WW2 aircraft are hardly known for their flying qualities

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
This time it’s the July 1987 edition of AEROMODELLER with the cover showing TOM McCOY proudly displaying his vintage Lanzo Bomber amid the hustle and bustle of the Toledo Expo.

Again one free flight plan to be found in the issue in the form of the D.H.53 HUMMING BIRD by Australian designer JIM FULLARTON.

The D.H. 53 was one of the more successful ultra-lights to take part in the 1923 Daily Mail trials at Lympne and was a sensibly arranged and robust aircraft. A number were ordered by the R.A.F and five built for the overseas markets.

Jim’s plan does the original proud and his model placed second in the 1985-86 Australian Free Flight Championships.

It is loaded with scale detail and the very extensive accompanying build article also provides much useful scale documentation.


Cheers

Veron Fledgling

Anyone have a copy of the plans for the 24 inch wingspan Veron Fledgling. The Fledgling would make a great model for the FAC Two Bit Plus One event. Thanks Paul

It would be if it were elegible but to best of my recollection it was first advertised in 1946, a year too late for FAC

Can anyone confirm or refute?

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Going to the September 1983 issue of AEROMODELLER where two very nice scale rubber model plans were to be found. They are both on the cover.

The first was FRED by SEIGFRIED GLOCKNER a peanut scale replica of ERIC CLUTTON’S famous homebuilt light aircraft.

This has already been posted by WMD and can be found here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...65873&page=270


Next was a PIPER J3C-65 CUB by JACQUES DELCROIX at 26 in (660mm) span for rubber power.

This really is a delightful model by Jacques and a top performance is claimed. So much so that it has a dethermaliser and your advised to use it for all flights.

As with all such models keeping it light is the prime requirements so use your best wood and no “Beefing up”. Target weight is about 60 grams. The original was lost after a 993 secs OOS flight.

Cheers

Is Replikit still in business .. or back in business? Have read some very mixed reviews of their past offerings.

30 quid for a kit for a 24" model .... 14 days before despatch ... plus delivery period. Could have a scratchbuilt model in the air in less time.

I could have a plan copy run off for Paul but his present request is for validation of the year Fledgling was first advertised.

Son of Sharky - Looks even better than the plans

Plans in Post 591. I was looking for a quick building fix being too busy with other projects for a more involved built.
Looks great!, Flies great. Kids think so too. It will even take a discus launch.

I needed a lot of nose weight so put doublers on the nose.

Just the ticket for fun at the school yard.

Thanks for the post!

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
This time to the Christmas 1962 edition of Aeromodeller where the cover is graced by LAURIE BAGLEY'S painting of twof F.W.190s A-3squadron operating from bases in Northern France and Belgium on intruder patrol over Southern England.

Being Christmas it was a bumper issue with many feature plus the TUFFY and SARACEN free plans could be found in the centre, Sadly the issue I have lost them many years ago.

But there are other goodies to pass along the first being another take on the EUREKA a very successful power free flight pylon contest model dating from 1958 by NORMAN MARCUS. It has already been posted and can be found here. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...&postcount=136

This updated version by GEORGE STRINGWELL addresses various problems found with the original including a rather weak wing structure. A new airfoil section was also introduced together with a stiffer fuselage.

Next heading indoors with WORLD CHAMPION by KARL-HEINZ RIEKE a duration micro film model.

There was no construction article but the plan has all you need.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and D.H.COOKSEY takes a detailed look at the cover subject the FOCK WOLF. FW 190 A-3 & 8.



Cheers
