searching for a 1 1/4" spinner?
Pete,

I dug around in my bottomless pile of stashed stuff and found a metal spinner with a 1 3/16" base diameter - approximately 29 mm.
This particular spinner was purchased once upon a time for a small elecric and was never used. The base is sized for a 1 mm
shaft, probably for a Speed 400 e-motor. If used on a small diesel, it could be carefully drilled out and would probably be OK.
There's no paperwork but I believe the original source was German.

I'd attach a picture but don't think this particular message board can do it. If you'd want to see a picture, send your e-mail address
to pwyoung@ix.netcom.com

Anyone have a source for a 1.25 inch spinner?
I'm in the middle of a build of a Phantom Mite from the plans (in the kit my brother built in the early 1970s).

One item I have - very bashed up - from the original model is a 1-1/4 inch (1.25 inch / 32mm) spinner. Try as I might, I have failed to find a replacement spinner of the right size, or indeed any spinner of any size suitable for a 0.5cc Mills look-alike diesel with a M3.5 (3.5mm diameter) prop shaft. Likewise, finding 6x4 or 7x4 props for the same engine is proving difficult - all I find are for (much) larger shafts.

Does anyone know of a source for the spinner or props today? Or knows a manufacturer looking for an opportunity at the small end? Thanks if you do!

Cheers --Pete in East Sussex (but available for shopping anywhere online!)

Building the later version!
Thanks, Aeroastro and I'm sorry for not answering your questions sooner!

The engine is a 0.5cc Mills look-alike, very much like this one: https://goo.gl/images/HhDq48 or this: https://www.stevewebb.co.uk/index.php?pid=CS05NAVOVTEGH&area=Engines - a lovely little engine bought at a local modellers' swap meet - once I'd got it ungummed (soak in cellulose thinners) it runs beautifully on a 6x/3 prop.

If you ever find a source for a 1.25 inch (1 1/4 inch for the search engines) or 32mm diameter spinner, let me know please - I've searched everywhere! Best wishes --Pete in East Sussex

Falconer P-38
This is an excellent plan by Richard Falconer and will give great flights with good trimming. The video is NOT built from this plan but from a Dumas kit---very different. The only changes I made were to move the motor peg forward a bay and to enlarge the stab a bit. This is a stand alone plan for free flight rubber scale and is not a "starter" for radio control. There is far too many differences between free flight scale and a radio control version and an RC builder would not learn much at all that is transferable. Besides this model is as complicated and challenging to build as any RC model. For free flight rubber scale, though, it is superb.

Ive build this model, almost done, how to i add pictures?
de havilland canada dhc 8 bombardier dash 8 series 100 200 q200 1983 canada
On the real aircraft, and this is info I received from a De Haviland (Bombardier) employee back in the 80's as I was interested in building a scaled up model of the Dash 8.
Wing span is 90 feet or 27.43 m
Tail span is 26 feet or 7.93 m
overall length is 84 feet 3 inches or 25.68 m
center of rear vertical stabilizer to center of engine nacelle is 12 feet 11 inches or 3.94 m
center lines of nacelles are 25 feet 10 inches or 7.88m apart
propellors are 77 inches or 1.96m in front of leading edge at nacelle
Horizontal stab is 24 feet 7 inches or 7.49m from ground height
the tricycle gear are set up so that there is 32 feet 10 inches or 10.0 m between front and read wheels
door sill height is 43 inches or 1.09 m from ground level
the top of the fuselage is 10 feet 5 inches at the front
dihedral is 2.5 degrees at the tips from the point where the wings taper back.
I am sure there is more information out there and I will try to fill in some of the other dimensions if I can get around to drawing a scale drawing of the aircraft.

Regards
Scott

Just a correction--this plane was designed by Mark Romanowitz for W. Bain.

A very nice well detailed model. I have a 2.4m with 44cc Tartan in mine. Well done.

Dihedral
Is there any dihedral on the wings of this Peanut model?
The wings roots are angled. Is this for the shape of the fuselage?
Plan: PopsieAeroBob on 27/12/2018 12:53
powered by motor - not rubber
The plan shows a Mills engine, and radio equipment.
so this is not a rubber powered plane.

OK then. Thanks for the support and if you have more plans to share you can upload them to your account you will have control over everything on the listings.

This site is a bit different from the outerzone, here people share themselves, I don´t control much, I can make corrections if needed by by principle I don´t touch anything. Sometimes people send me plans by email that I upload to my account or to their account, even in these cases I just upload the stuff, I really don´t have time to go investigating who did what but I´ll include credits whenever I´m asked.

Have a great 2019!

You're fine! Keep doing what you do. it's a great service for the avid modeler, myself included. I had a rough day yesterday and chose to vent where it wasn't deserved. For that I am sorry.

Hi!

Thanks for sharing the missing pages.

Sure I´ll give you credit, how do you want to be credited?

I created those missing sheets and uploaded them to Outerzone. Got credit and a thank you for doing it there. I guess here we just take someone else's hard work and upload it as our own, with no credit to it's creator??? Sorry, just kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I guess as long as someone else's build is made easier/possible, I am happy knowing I helped. Carry on!

PS: I've downloaded my fair share of plans and I am grateful to all who make that possible!

Thank you for sharing the missing sheets, they are already in the main pdf file.
Plan: Spirit of St Louis 80inozferret on 09/12/2018 23:48
Incomplete
These plans are very nice as far as they go. Good wing plan, fuselage side and bottom views. However there are no drawings for the fuselage formers, undercarriage details, wing and tail rib sections (although there are a couple of sections through the wing which could be used). Then there are the myriad of small parts without details. It looks like there should have been a second sheet. None of these omissions would make a build impossible but their inclusion would make it a whole lot quicker and easier.
Thanks anyway for the plan, I'll be enjoying this build :)

Details incorrect
The motor is JETEX, not CO2
otherwise, looks good.
Plan: HORTEN IIIlolo1715 on 23/11/2018 22:30
Not the right plan...
It seems that the plan downloaded is the Horten III 3M. The plan does not correspond to the previews.
Plan: Nakajima Ki-43Heywood12 on 22/11/2018 17:46
No wing or stabilizer diagrams in plan.
Were the wings foam? Was the horizontal stabilizer and elevators foam? They aren't in the plans.

Apologize, but I just checked the comments regarding the above plans on this date, November 19, 2018.
I inform that the said project was drawing, in pages of an extended special format in the dimensions (900mmX3000mm), to permit the scale (1:1).
Each of the file formats provided for printing utilizes three pages each:
1. One page - Fuselage;
2. One page - Wing and Stabilizer;
3. One page - Pieces with construction details;

Each page, have the mentioned dimensions (900mmX3000mm), and the files are as following:
1. Three pages, Auto CAD DWG - with a table with the thicknesses of the lines for printing;
2. Three pages, Auto CAD DXF - with a table with the thicknesses of the lines for printing;
3. Three pages, Auto Cad PLT;
4. Three pages, PDF file;
5. Brief manual of construction on file (.pdf);

If necessary, I can send them directly to your email, with the concurrence of AEROFRED.
Sincerely
Jayme Toscano.................

I have built and flown this plane, it flys around 1 and a half minutes with a 7 inches dia. Prop if trimmed well.

Photo could be misleading
In the photos, the former in the cabin - could be the back of the pilot's seat - seems to be upside down.
Surely a hole is needed for the rubber motor to go through.

Or have I confused myself?
