Off-Shoot Sport

Vaughan Drew's Off-Shoot Sport

I was inspired to design and build this airframe by other "fun fly' types on the market as I prefer to design and build my own models. I've kept the construction as simple and straightforward as I could and it builds speedily. Construction consists of mainly laser cut / routed parts that slot together to ensure speedy and accurate construction. Only the control surfaces are conventionally built. Covering takes the most time but adds to the pleasure of the build.

Flying and handling offer very few surprises and aerobatics are handled with confidence although it does carry its speed well on final approach so flaperon mixing would be recommended.

NOTE: DXF files are in the supplemental files 1 and 2 at the bottom of this page.

What are you ordering:

You are ordering a print from the main PDF file in this listing, it´s exactly like taking this file in a thumb drive to a local print shop and ask them to make a print.

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.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale this 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.

You will receive:

  • Laser Printed plan on good quality Bond paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet of the PDF file from this listing, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 5 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if they are available and if you order them.
  • Air Mail, Priority, Priority Insured or Normal mail, according to your choice.

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.

About the different media types:

Bond Paper: White Bond paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Bond Tracing paper: Bond Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester film: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).


We charge by print length (914mm or 91,4cm or 36in. by the length of the print)
This means that a plan 120cm by 150cm will be charged two times 150cm because it will be printed in two tiles, a plan 91cm by 150cm will be charged one time its length or 150cm and a plan 91cm by 40cm will be charged 40cm.
The system will try to fit a plan in the 91,4cm of the printer width in order to reduce the costs or print length to the maximum. This is the same charging method used in any printshop.


We will use paper or waxed paper padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans, depending on your choice.

3D Printed Parts
Order 3D Printed Parts for the Off-Shoot Sport

General Information

3D printing allow us to design not only complete airplane models but also parts to complete balsa, foam or even composite model airplanes.

Parts can be designed and printed to fit exactly a model you have or a model you plan to build, even if you are not building this model to the full size plan.

3D Printing, and 3D CAD allow us to create the actual parts to fit on our models but also allow us to create negative molds where we can make composite parts.

I´m adding this service to all the plan listings on the site knowing that not every part you imagine or need can be done, knowing this, jobs will be evaluated case by case and a price estimate will be given on request.

What can be done with 3D Printing:

  • Canopies
  • Cowls
  • Wheel Pants
  • Landing Gears
  • Wing Ribs
  • Motor Mounts
  • Servo Trays
  • Servo Covers
  • Wings
  • Fuselages
  • Complete Models

Full Models, Wings or Fuselages

It is possible to design a complete model for you but keep in mind that this is a lengthy process, many hours are needed to design and test a fully 3D Printed model. The finished model cannot have the same internal structure of the wooden made counterpart because it wouldn´t be possible to print it, it would have to have a structure like the models you can see in the 3D Printed Kits section of the site.

From the outside they are very loyal to the plan but still they have to be printed in sections, typically to fit a 250X210X200 mm cube that is the printer maximum build volume.

3D Printed planes are also heavier than light balsa models, all built up and ready to fly, with an electric power system they are generally a little lighter than the same model if it were powered by a glow engine. Please have a look at the 3D Printed kits section to have an idea on this.


I will calculate a price upon request, please contact me here mentioning this PlanID: 101727 and the job you wish me to do.

What supplemental files? Is this plan cross-posted on other sites/forums...?

“NOTE: DXF files are in the supplemental files 1 and 2.”
Supplemental files Vaughan207 on 04/11/2018 18:02
No, this is my own original design posted here by me. The supplemental files containing the DXF's are at the bottom of the page. Scroll down the page to find them. I also initially struggled to find them when I checked after uploading.
Love this, but... Would love Cut Files by balsa thickness blevien on 07/11/2018 20:48
I will try to compile a directly laser cuttable file from all the individual parts, and if I can get that put together I will try to post them somehow.

Thanks for the great design.
Couldn't find the supplemental files at all Airwolf on 08/11/2018 03:55
I went down to the bottom of the page and saw only DXF Plans and nothing else. Hope to see that files some day soon.
off-shoot sport DL6UK on 06/02/2019 21:01
I´m about to start building it. I´ve found all I need apart from the aileron thickness.
So would you please post how thick the ailerons are - thanks.

Aileron Thickness Vaughan207 on 07/02/2019 07:38
Hi Heiko,

The ailerons are from 6mm Balsa.

Engine recommendations matherp on 31/03/2022 10:50

Thanks for the plan. I'm just completing laser cutting the parts with an LED laser - slow but very accurate.
Please could you let me have a recommendation for the power system - suitable motor and battery?

Also, may have missed it somewhere but what is the thickness of the wood for the tail feathers - 6mm?


RE: Engine / motor reccomendations Vaughan207 on 31/03/2022 11:12
Hi Peter,

Glad to hear you're cutting parts for my design. I'd love to hear more of your progress and feedback. I've learned a lot since posting this design.

I use and would recommend the E-flite Power 46 brushless outrunner with a 3 cell for mild performance and a 4 cell for more exciting flying. You can experiment with various prop sizes too. Performance is really satisfying with these options.

Tail feather balsa thickness is 6mm, yes.
Aileron thickness - duhh... matherp on 31/03/2022 11:54
Thanks for the info on the engine. I remembered I had a question on thickness after looking at the plans but asked about the wrong part. It is the aileron thickness that I'm not sure of.

Built and flying matherp on 15/06/2022 17:21
Flying well on 3 cell with a cheap ebay-special 3548 motor. Vertical as long as I want. Its not rolling quite as fast as I expected so will gap seal the ailerons and see if that helps. I used 2mm lite-ply for the ribs all cut out on a LED laser.
Thanks for the great design
