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 Gee Bee R-3 or any other PDF 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 the following ID (ID:95957) and send us a message with the desired wingspan and any other info you may find useful.

You will receive:

  • Waterproof Laser Printed plan on good quality Bond paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 or 6 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 3 or 4 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if we have them for the given plan.
  • Air Mail, economic and reliable.

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 will use brown padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans.


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.


We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.


Tracking is available and is recommended. Someone will have to sign the order at the delivery address.


Please keep in mind that when you order a plan it will be printed specifically for you, just like when you go to a local print shop.
Before ordering please make sure that the plan will fit your needs, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If you still receive a plan you don´t like we can accept it back if it is in good conditions but we will not refund the postage from the initial order, you will have to pay the postage to return the plan to us and a 30% re-stock fee will be applied so please, in doubt, please ask us for an opinion.


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.

Thanks for uploading.

I´ve made a few changes to your listings:

Naming: Left only the plane/plan name, the rest should go to the description or the attribute fields.

Wingspan: The first dropdown, the one with the values intervals is just to allow the plan to be searchable by wingspan interval. After selecting the interval two more fields open up, the value itself and the units, you have been filling up only the units. The units alone are wortless. You can fill up only the interval or all the fields if you know the wingspan value. This way the plan will be searchable and the users will know the exact wingspan of the model.

In the future I´ll make a converter to show the wingspan and weight both on metric and imperial and allow search by setting the lower and upper ends.

Date: You typed "circa" 2005 we humans understand this but computers don´t so the plan won´t be searchable by date if the plan is from 2005 you can select the year and the month of June from the datepicker A more intelligent search function is in the works but there is so much thing to do the it may take some time

These are just minor corrections but since you have done it on almost all your plans I found better to explain you why and how things should be done.

Thank you very much for uploading your great plans,
