Griffon model airplane plan


Model Aircraft's Griffon

Multi-talented, world-class designer Britisher Dave Platt designed Griffon, a sport control-line model spanning
32 inches and sized for a 1.5 cc (.09 cubic inches) diesel motor. The plane would be an 'easy build' and for power,
electric propulsion would be a good option since 1.5 cc engines - diesel or glow - are fairly uncommon these days.
The plane is capable of flying the entire aerobatic schedule, impressive for an unflapped model. Thanks to 'stormin'
for providing the plans for Dave Platt's nifty sport stunter!
