Westland Lysander 3 model airplane plan

Westland Lysander 3

Popular Aviation's Westland Lysander 3

The Westland Lysander was a British army co-operation and liaison aircraft produced by Westland Aircraft used immediately before and during the Second World War.

This particular plan is from Easy-Build Models. That's the name of the company not the builder level ;)

You will find hundreds of plans on-line for this very popular plane. Like building the real thing. This particular plan is actually for a Master Builder. It's small, light and if you don't have $3-10,000 for a radial engine lying around this is really cheap ;) You can use and paint regular or tissue paper. This is a great plane for scaling yourself and building larger true to scale planes.

If you're a beginner you can still try this plan but I would recommended that you are at least very talented working with wood. Do't be turned off because it is difficult to build, you might not get it perfect but you will learn a lot about construction flight etc. with a little help. It can be really cheap and is still found in kit form some with die or laser cut parts.

The YouTube video below shows how to convert the similar Guillows kit to RC. Shouldn't be too difficult with today's micro-equipment. Interestingly this model can be used for display only, free flight, RC or control line.

Not sure why but I got the pdf with almost unreadable text. I'll post it up to the plan article.

Member Profile for CoMIYC69


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.

Radio-Control Airplane Scale Outdoor Various-Wood-Types


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.

Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.
