Doug's Trainer

DMorris Design's Doug's Trainer

This 4-channel, radio-controlled, trainer is built from pink Insulation foam board, and is electric-powered. By itself, the foam is lightweight but needs reinforcing for expected flight loads and stiffening to keep the wing, rudder, and elevator from flexing, so I have incorporated carbon-fiber tube (wing spar), and carbon-fiber rods (tail feathers). To further help with crash impacts and protect the foam from solvents found in common "rattle-can" spray paints, I have wrapped the outer surfaces with a frosted adhesive-backed Mylar that is sold by Avery as a mailing label in 8-1/2" x 11" size (Avery #18665, available in office supply stores). I also used some 1/64" plywood to reinforce the fuselage sides ahead of the wing to help with the motor loads and landing gear loads.

About the plan source:

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Doug's Trainer plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

  • Articles and Instructions if we have them for the given plan.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ and Canon printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and waterproof.

Bond Paper: White Bond paper, 80 grams per square meter.

Shipping:

We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.
Orders are dispatched on the next or second business day after purchase.

Postage:

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.

Tracking:

Tracking is available and is recommended.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
