Yippee!

Free plans Thread


I thought this would be a good idea for a sticky thread. This thread would have all pdf or cad plans for all the great foamies out there. This way if any one needed them there all right in one spot just search the list. What does everyone think? Moderators would this work? I think it would. Please comment and lets see what we can do.

Tow Man,
Great idea, They are scattered out all over these threads. It would be
nice to have a description of the aircraft and link.

Towman,

Although the idea is terrific and has been suggested before, there are pitfalls regarding the copyright of many plans available on the net, and no real way of verifying just which plans are actually freely available, and which have been pinched. RC Groups obviously cannot be a party to the possible infringement of copyright laws.

However, there is nothing to stop bona fide designers posting links to their
own designs here.

Either way I think it should be tried. It will definitly make things a lot easier. And also it will probably get more people interested in the foamies when they see a list of all the plane they can make and fly without spending a whole lot. After all isn't this whole group thing about helping everyone out.

This is a GREAT idea. If the designer submits a plan to the thread, wouldn't all of the bases be covered?

I think what Tim needs are these 2 statements:
1) I am the author of this/these plan(s)
2) I give them freely to anyone who wishes to build one for themselves. I do NOT authorize anyone to make copies to make money/copies for commercial gain.
