Finally got a temporary working machine so have been able to scan a few more.
Got hold of a few old M.A.N and American Modeler mags so will be posting from these as well. 50+ might have posted some that I will be posting but just in case those I post will be full sized with full documentation.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Going to the January 1971 AEROMODELLER with the cover featuring Woodford’s “MISS AEROMODELLER 1970” LINDA STAFFORD posing with John O’Donnell’s Wakefield “SLOW COACH”.

The first free flight plan is a very nice scale MILES M.5 SPARROWHAWK by D.M. COLLIN.

The original model was powered by D.C DART .5cc diesel and featured pendulum control but flight trials showed it to be both unstable and underpowered.

A switch to .75cc or 1cc diesel and a fixed rudder solved all the problems resulting in a model that flys well and looks great in the air. The plan is 1/7th full size.

Of 351/2 inch wingspan the construction article has all the details.


Next to a quick “Chuck” glider by Canadian E. AVORY. TRIBUTE is just 15in span and the designer said at 15gramms is very sensitive to lift and prone to O.O.S. flights.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and the SEPCAT “JAGUAR” with drawings by C.J.NICHOLS.


Cheers

Nice plans and scans Aeromeddeler! Especially like the Smoothie. I was wondering if there might be the possibility of posting these files with titles lending themselves to easy filing, such as: "Smoothie 44-inch Span FF wakefield rubber 1950" This would avoid much renaming when sorting them out.

Cripes. Aw, look now I've just spat my coffee out all over my keyboard.

Nice work, Aeromeddler. Good to have you back.

Two problems with long names
1 Look at some of 50+ posts in the vintage group the ones with long names are unreadable due to the names overlapping. Plus if you use a download manager you get.
Ace%20of%20Diamonds%2036in%20SS%20pusher%20with%20 Warren-Young%20wing%20George%20Wools%20Aeromodeller%20195 8%2008
2. As the must build list gets longer the time you have left to build them gets shorter. The MAN mag posted below required over twenty pages to be scanned to produce the three files. Each one has to be straightend,cut and pasted to reduce the text to 3 or 4 pages and the plan has to be scaled. Then the whole lot is converted to a PDF to fit the upload. Plus I am a terrubbule speler.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Going this time to the January 1972 AEROMODELLER with the cover showing an actual Hot Air balloon scending during the flying display of the Shuttleworth Collection Old Warden UK.

In fact the plans to pass along from this issue are for MIDAIR by S.T.MIDSON.

MIDAIR is a three foot diameter Hot Air Balloon giving 24 cubic foot capacity.

A 11/2 minute burn on a still air day will get you to some 300 feet in altitude. All the details are in the construction article and on the working drawings. Certainly an intriguing model to make.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and A.A.P. LLOYD takes a detailed look at the OR-65-2 OWL RACER.


Cheers

a: I have downloaded every one of your postings and I am verry happy with the way you are doing them. The little extra work I spend filing them keeps me out of the pool hall I can't thank you enough for all of the work you are doing.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

HI,
This time to the February 1971 AEROMODELLER. The cover features H.C QUEK’S semi scale YAK 9D Control Line Stunt Model.

This issue has two full size free flight plans the first being the delightful rubber powered ORLIK. Designed by MIROSLAV ROHLENA the simple 331/2 inch is a cabin model with a good performance.

Next is LITTLE DEER by JACK ALLEN. Jack said he was inspired after attending the 1969 World Champs and seeing KARL RIEKES unusual high mounted tail plane model.

Of 291/2 inch wingspan the original was powered by a .5cc engine . All the details are in the construction article.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and a close look is taken at the DORNIER DO-X a twelve engined 1926 flying boat.

Cheers

Same name, different model

Nothing against the Smoothie in post #796, but Hank Cole's Smoothie, also a rubber model, beats it in a beauty contest.

Aeromodeller free flight plans

Hi,
Going to the March 1971 AEROMODELLER in search of Free Flight Plans.

The cover features the YAK 18 PS flown by IGOR EGOROV winner of the Individual Would Championships at R.A.F Hullavington 1970 plus the YA8 PM flown to individual Woman’s Championship by Miss SAVITSKAYA.

One free flight plan to be found in this issue and it’s a scale FAIRY BARRACUDA from WW11.

Designed by PHIL McALROY it’s of 32 inch wingspan and powered by a Mills .75cc diesel.

Phil said the model is near scale and designed for flying over rough ground. The plan is to 1/8th scale.

Finally to AIRCRAFT DESCRIBED and the YAKOVLEN YAK 18PM & PS by JOHN BLAKE with scale drawings by P. LlOYD.

Roger thanks for joining up the BI STAR and MEADOWLARK MINOR plans. As I mentioned, when making the post, the Meadowlark proved to be a great R/C trainer and happily trundled about the sky as I tried to work out which way it was heading and what to do next.

Cheers
