What a lovely thing it is.

I've looked at it so many times over so many years.

Aeromodeller free flight plans


Hi,
To the AEROMODELLER for August 1992 with the busy cover showing some of the many goodies to be found in this issue.

The first full size free flight plan was for a scale MILES MAGESTER built from foam by ANTONIN ALFREY.

Of 271/2 inch wingspan it can be powered by CO2, rubber or electric and judging by the plan and the photos it makes up into a great looking model.

If like me you have never built with foam before the in depth construction article gives all the information needed including advice on the foam to use, glues and how to hot cut everything to shape.


Next was a free flight model based on a sporty control line design by PETER HOLLAND.

CHARLEY JEFFREYS was so taken by the unorthodox Duplex Delta model he shrunk it a bit, renamed it WOMBAT, strapped a COX .010 to the front and was soon enjoying himself at the local flying field.

He also suggests it would be suitable for CO2 and I guess once more a small electric unit. You are also free to scale it up to suit your motor.


Cheers

Algy

Polecat and Polestar not strictly FF but not C/L either, these are a couple of rubber power indoor RTP team racers I have included and article on indoor team racing with rules. Looks like a good club project over the winter.

A similar article and plans run in the March 1961 Model Airplane News on how to build these fun little planes

Aeromodeller free flight plans


Hi,
This time it’s the August 1988 AEROMODELLER with the cover showing the record breaking DAEDALUS man powered aircraft the subject of an in depth article.

Another in depth article together with three half size plans was Peanut Duration by RENE JOSSIEN.

In fact Rene formulated a whole new category of indoor rubber duration and the article gives all the information together with rules to fly by. Why not get a competition going in your area?

The three models presented are quite simple in construction and flights of over 5 minutes have been recorded.

Next to a perennial Vintage free flight powered favourite but this time a mini version for CO2.

Its’ MARICE SCHOENBRUN’S 1940 GLADIATOR beautifully reduced to 20 inch wingspan by ALEC GEE.

This really is a nice looking model. One to get your teeth onto. It flew right off the board circling smoothly in wide left hand circuits and then glided on and on when the power ran out.


Cheers

Algy

Aeromodeller free flight plans


Hi,
This time it’s the March 1995 AEROMODELLER with the cover showing the Modelhob P-51D scale profile control line kit model with a review to be found in this issue.

One free flight plan to pass along and it’s a little charmer for vintage fans.

Denmark’s AAGE PETERSON originally designed this 24 inch Rubber Duration model in the late 1940’s and drawings were published at the time but information was missing.

VIC SMEED liked the look of the model so much that he redrew the plan and with it available once more SAM 35 offered to run a one design competition.

The construction article is very detailed and a great deal of information given on how to carve your own balsa propeller. Carving your own prop is much easier then you might think and the finished model will look so much better.

Cheers

Rake Tailess Sport power model from 1963


Here's a tailess sport FF power for .5 diesels.
Published in Model Aircraft March 1963.
A straightforward but pleasing design.

So is the "Rake" actually tailess? Given the apparent position of the aft placed fin, I would contend that it is not strictly a tailess design . I further suspect that the model could be flown succesfsully by simply moving elevons at wing tips directly inward to attach to the fuslage below/each side of fin, to form a small conventional stab. However, it is still a very interesting model!

I would say the Rake is horizontal stabless.
