Hawker Tempest Mk I

Old Pilot's Hawker Tempest Mk I

Hawker Tempest MkI - Radio control model for electric power. This is a modern-day plan, but the subject is an interesting vintage aircraft. Some indicated that the inspiration for that aircraft was a Hawker Tempest Mk-1, designed by Sidney Camm. Only one was ever built. Indeed, the pictures on the Tempest website and on Wiki bear more than casual resemblance. The revised plans include more detail and plotted on A1 sheets, with the exception of the print wood. Formers are easier to cut, and solved the wing shoulder to fuselage mounting.

Peter Rake designs are similar targeted toward the scratch builder. Many of the designs were offered as free plans in various magazines. The WWI kits include built up wheels and foam cord for the tires. Where indicated there are plastic parts to make the building go faster.

A great low wing trainer and the plans are easy to read and templates for everything you need.

Video shows actual model but unseasoned pilot loses control.

Love building and flying. I've always flown on private property and only been involved with clubs twice. I live in southern Ontario Canada near Niagara Falls. I build at least one plane a year. I am fairly new to 3D helicopters.

My name is Donnie and I've been flying planes, helicopters, racing cars and launching rockets since 1970 when I got my first U-control plane from Carl Goldberg models. I finally got my first RC in 1983 a Cessna 182 kit with four channels. My favorite planes are 3D of every sort of aircraft. Anything capable of punching holes in the sky. IRL I work with programming and I use the skills I have to build my own designs and plans. Thank you for the donations.
