Bristol Scout
Designer: Tim Cullip
Designer Email: Tim Cullip at RCGroups
Specs: 10 inch WS, 17g AUW
Material Required: 1/32" balsa, Tissue

Notes: Tim has created a quite remarkable Bristol Scout! Here is what he said about its construction:

"This parkzone equipment is amazing. I only had my cessna for 3 days before I tore the equipment out and put it in this scratch built 10" bristol scout.

It started out life as a 28 gram plane 6 months ago using an MicroInvent Rx, falcon servos, YGE controller, home built 7 gm brushless motor, and 135 mah battery. It flew, but was too heavy for such a small model. The brushless motor, 135 mah battery and brushless controller were just too much for it.

Now with the parkzone equipment (rx, servos, motor/gearbox, battery) it is a nice 17 grams. It has pull-pull rudder and elevator (sort of). For example, I use sewing thread from the servo out to one side of the rudder, and then light elastic thread from the other side of the rudder back to a tie down point in the fuse.
This puts a light tension on the servo, but I don't think it is enough to cause problems.

The rx/servo combo was a tight fit, having to put it in diagonally in the fuselage. I'm now encouraged to build an 11" version from scratch and shoot for a lighter frame/covering (this 10" one was a whopping 8 grams before putting the parkzone equipment in it). This current one is a bit overbuilt.

The structure is made out of 1/32" balsa (some of it doubled up to 1/16", for example the fuselage frame, and tail surface outline). It is covered with Japanese tissue that was chalked a pale yellow. The "decals" are simply done on a laser printer using standard paper and glue sticked on - too heavy but they are small at this scale. The wing rigging is simple sewing thread. "

Cessna 310

Notes: Redbeardrc has produced a quite remarkable build with his Cessna 310! Here is what he has to say about how his design came about:

"After my 210 met face to face with the large rotating prop of a P-38 mid flight there wasn't much left of the poor Cessna. After buying another one, and of course the appropriate greaving period, I decided to rebuild her. This is my attempt to make her better, stronger, faster"

Derik's Tiny Park Flyer
Designer: derk
Designer Email: derk at RCGroups
Specs: 12g AUW
Material Required: Balsa, CF
Downloads available:
Notes: This is my own design loosely based on the Tiny parkflyer of ages ago. It flies very well on either the stock battery or a 50mah cell. On the 50mah it will fly for 6-8 minutes on average. it will loop and roll very well and can be quick or slow down easily. The motor is mounted using double sided servo tape because it provides some vibration dampening and crash resistance as well. Also, the motor needs about 3-4 right and also 3-4 down thrust. if you have too much right, it will pull to the right hard in a stall rather than torque around. The receiver is mounted just about in line with the aileron bellcrank. (in height)

The plane does cruise a bit faster than the Cessna but it can turn much tighter than the stock plane.
the ailerons are on a bell-crank made from 1/64th ply, the wing is balsa, carbon fuse and landing gear and a foam tail. Reynolds wrap for covering.

Notes: Heres my model. Its a geebee, I made it by lookin at pictures that I found on google, I think it turned out pretty well for being made by me. It flys pretty nicely, It'll occasionaly loop but most of the time just does high alpha when i try, not sure why. But its light enough to hover and is fairly stable. Fun little flier.
10" wingspan
8" long(spiner-rudder)
made from foam plates
roughly 14grams AUW (with LG not pictured)

Low Wing Cessna with Ailerons
Designer: Pouncer
Designer Email: Pouncer at RCGroups
Specs: Low Wing Modification for Cessna
Material Required: Caliper, EPP, lite plywood, bell crank, CF
Downloads available:
Notes: 1) Remove wing from cabin top.
It's fastened with double sided tape but I didn't have any difficulties removing it, just proceed with patience.
2) Using calipers set to 35 mm trace the bottom cutout using the top of the cabin as guide.
3) Pull out the main landing gear and using a new blade cut out and remove the bottom portion of the fuselage and set aside.
4) You need to remove another slice from the fuselage sides to accommodate the wing, it's 3 mm thick at 1/3rd chord and thins out to the leading and trailing edges. Dry fit the pieces and check for alignment often.
The bottom fuselage piece should fit snugly to the underside of the wing and you can easily see when it's flush with the underside of the fuselage.
The fuse can seem a little wobbly at this stage, don't worry it'll stiffen up once you re-glue it.
5) Cut the ailerons, but not all the way through, just break the top skin 12 mm from the trailing edge.
6) You'll need a yoke and two horns. You can use any tube and rod to make the axis, I used matching carbon rod and tube but piano wire and ball point pen tube works too!
The transversal and the rudder horns are from 0.4 mm ply, the push rods are piano wire.
Pushrod holes are 12 mm from centre on the transversal and the horns' holes are 11 mm from the wing upper surface.
The transversal has a fourth hole between centre and pushrod hole: this is where it'll connect to the existing rudder pushrod.

Normally pushrod lenght's are determined by the exact location of the yoke inside the fuse but it's easier to make two pushrods and let them determine where exactly the yoke needs to be (mine are 30 mm from Z bend to Z bend).
The horns are CA'ed to a small square base of the same ply which is then UHU Por'ed to the ailerons.
Rigging the pushrods to the horns and the yoke determine where the axis centre is and fix it inside the fuse.
This is why we haven't cut loose the ailerons yet, it's much easier to set and rig the pieces without them flapping about.
7) Make a small L shape out of piano wire and tie to the rudder pushrod so that it protrudes through the fourth hole on the transversal.
Once everything it straight and true hit it with CA and you're ready to cut loose the ailerons
8) Take out all but a couple of degrees of down thrust on the motor
9) If your Cessna tends to dive into the roll move the pushrod to an outward hole on the rudder horn.

Enjoy your new, sleek maneuverable low rider!

MM Slow Twig
Designer: Mchone, Jake
Designer Email: Mchone, Jake at RCGroups
Specs: 12 inch WS, 20g AUW
Material Required: Parkzone 210 components, 2mm CF 1/16 balsa
Downloads available:
Notes: This design was originally intended for AeroAce gear and was created by Leadfeather. Those wishing to build one of the planes will find the plans for it under the AeroAce section. Here is what the designer of this variation had to say about his build.

"Here is my Slow Twig from plans I found in the AA toolbox. It was origionally for AeroAce gear, but I had to make a micro Slow Stick!
12" span
~20grams RTF
2mm CF rod for fuse and 1/16" balsa fo rteh wing mount.
I made the wings and tail from McDonald's foam breakfast trays. (about 2mm thick)

I could have built it lighter, but it flies great as it is and about 20grams and twice the wing area as the Cessna. It flies as fast and the stock Cessna, but flies JUST like a real Slow Stick! Loops and hanner heads and all!

Great flyer!

Look up the plan and try one!

Designer Email: 60buick at RCGroups
Specs: Mid Wing config with Ailerons
Material Required: Various
Downloads available:
Notes: The motor was moved forward and pointed straight ahead. The wing was moved back to relocate the CG. A micro servo arm was used to make a bellcrank for the ailerons. I also clipped the wings. I locked the rudder in place with clear tape. It will not fly as slow but it loops with ease, rolls and is faster.

P51 Mustang

Material Required: Depron

Notes: The mechnism works very fine in this geometry. Sorry for the lazy elevator construction (through rudder), I wanted to be as light as possible. This construction comes with 35cm span and the whole gear etc. (I weighed all together) with nice 16 gr. If finished, I would cover the motor hood area with selitac (1mm) - giving a better look. Hope to inspire you all
