Mooney M-18 Mite - 45 in span half A free flight low-wing by Walt Mooney. Scale PAA Load model. Quote: - "...with only two deviations from exact scale, it flew right off the board. The horizontal tail was increased in slightly in size and the dihedral was raised to supply the added stability needed in the model. The model in the article has been flown 20 times, including 14 flights at the 1955 Nationals. It will fly with or without the payload without any trim changes. Weight empty is 16oz, and with the payload 21oz."
Did I get something wrong with this plan? That happens a lot. Help me make a correction
* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, and confusingly, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
