Aeromaster RC bipe with 48in span. By Lou Andrews from Aamco,1966.

Two wing shapes are shown, swept and straight. Are they choices? The plans show a swept wing on top and straight on the bottom, but the photo looks like both are swept, unless that is just the viewing angle.

The original Aeromaster had the top wing swept and the bottom wing straight.
The wingspan was 48 inches on both wings.
most updated plan: http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1971

Around 1971 the Aeromaster was updated with an extra plan sheet so the both wings could be built with sweep and lengthened to 52 inches.
This was called the Aeromaster Too: http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1972

The builder can decide if he wants to build the plane with the short wings or the long wings himself.
The combination of both wings swept and 52 inches gives a better roll rate and a little extra glide compared to the short wing one.
The Aeromaster does not fly like earlier bi planes. It flies more like a pattern plane or fast sport plane, very maneuverable and surprisingly fast.

Thanks guys. It's a good point, basically the photo I showed there was misleading. Have removed that photo and put it onto the Aeromaster Too plan. I don't have a nice clear photo of the 48in original model, but have found a scrappy one online thats from the original box art, for now. Hopefully that makes things clearer.

Top Flite P-40 plans

I'm hoping someone here has a set of plans for the Top Flite P-40E kit squirreled away. I opened my kit this evening to survey the project and found that the fuselage sheet has a biig ol' hole in it!! Imagine that..These are likely a little too new for posting to the list so please contact me via pm.

Anyway, if you can help out with an original plan or a scan, or a good copy, etc I would be most appreciative. Please pm with what you've got and and what you think you'd need for it.

Many thanks!

Scott

Interestingly, I've gotten a few PMs asking me if I could upload plans I've already loaded to the other archival threads onto this one. That's quite a few, I think. I would try to only upload the ones that I posted myself, not the ones I got from the site, but I might accidently sneak a few in. I had thought of checking what I've done on this thread against what I've already posted, but that might take quite a while to crosscheck, so I might let that pass. The idea was to have the plans spread out over more than one thread in case something happens to one or the other. Anybody have any objections? Let me know in the next few days.

The alternative is to click on your name to the left of this panel. On the resulting page scroll down to 'Statistics' and list all posts. That I think should just about cover everything loaded. Many thanks

hmmm. Seems to me, if your intent is to create a backup copy, then it would best be on a different site. On a different server. Run by other people. That way when the unknown future problem comes... it cannot strike down both threads at once.

Just my 2c.

Can someone PLEASE help me find any kind of posted or free Canberra plan? Is one posted anywhere? I have been searching for more than a year for a plan to redraw to 44 or 45 inches for 2 speed 400's. As a retired person on a limited budget the $20 to $40 cost of a plan just for redrawing purposes is prohibitive. Skyleada has a 21 inch plan. but it is not sold as a plan, only a kit that would be unusable.
Thanks,
Richard

I would like to make a "Galloper", a British design by C.Ralph. The 1/4 scale drawing I found in the first M.A.P. Radio Control Manual is enough to build the model, but if any reader had access to the Aeromodeller issue of September 1965 and could scan the oiginal article, it would be ideal. Contact me via P.M. Thanks in advance

Galloper article

J-M, Here is the original Galloper plan and article, from the Sept. 65 Aeromodeller.
Sorry about the quality of the scans. My AMs are in a big bound volume, and are not easy to scan...
