    Zou jij die durven vliegen met enkel een kleine rudder tab om te sturen althans sturen geen idee of dat überhaupt zal sturen. Is wel een heel leuk en vooral ook mooi model.


    About this Plan
    DH Gipsy Moth. Radio control scale biplane model. Wing area 970sq in. For motors up to 6cc. Scale is 1/6.

    Quote: "Top R/C man of 1952, Sid Allen of Battersea, will also be remembered for his large-size (scaled-up) 'Sporty' entered in the 1950 Bowden Trophy. The pleasure derived from this model and its predecessor, also a 'Sporty', but of normal size, prompted Sid to look around for a scale biplane and one which, furthermore, could be used with radio control. He eventually settled on the APS 'Gipsy Moth' which, although only 60in wingspan, has a total wing area of just over 1,000 sq in, making it the largest scale model in the Plans Service. The original plan as issued (1943) required some slight structural modifications, both to improve strength and to correct one or two small deviations from true scale; the resulting model flew successfully from the very first and, as will be appreciated from the photographs, draws many an admiring remark for its realism, both static and in flight. The Atwood Triumph (8 cc) used by Sid gives more than sufficient power for excellent performance, and we have, in fact, seen a sport version of this Gipsy flying quite well with an ED Comp, so any motor from 3-5 cc. up should prove entirely suitable. Since making its debut in August, 1952, the original has made dozens of impressive flights without damage, although it must be stressed that it is primarily a fair-weather machine and is not really suitable for rough conditions or contest work. For flying in moderate breezes, an ingenious device is included for changing the incidence of the lower wing ; this is a gadget which really works. The re-issued plan contains all the modifications found necessary by Sid Allen, and is guaranteed to possess the high fidelity to scale..."

      ScaleType: This (oz8110) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
      If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

      ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
      Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
      For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
      Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

    Durven... Ja, dat wel. Het stuurt gegarandeerd.
    Of het ook verstandig is?
    Ik weet wel dat de kleine VV versie van @stunthenk voor enige hoofdbrekens heeft gezorgd.
    Maar ik zie geen alarmerende punten in dit ontwerp, dus ja, het zal wel lukken.
