Plan file details:
Cessna 180 - Radio control scale model. Quote: - "Hi Steve; Attached are the plans for the Sterling Cessna 180, kit FS-2; 45in span, designed for RC. Altho the specs in the lower right corner say 1/2A and A engines, the note at the engine mount says .09-.15. Believe the note, not the '1/2A and A'! I built one, way back when; a TD .051 _might_ fly it freeflight! An Enya .09 would fly it, an OS Max .09 flew it slightly better; with a .10 FSR it flew fairly well, but the Max .15 and Enya .19 flew it best. The Fox .15 Schneurle I had on it for a while was a bit of overkill. Mine was modified with the scale aileron and half the dihedral, and flown with a Futaba Gold Box 4-ch. system. My original was destroyed years ago by a tree falling on my building shed in a windstorm, but I recently acquired two complete kits, one with the metal cowl, and one with the plastic cowl." Direct submission to Outerzone. Update 14/11/2013: Added printwood files supplement, thanks to Edubarca.

Supplement file details:
Printwood files for the Sterling Cessna 180. This is a zipfile of 11 x PDF pages (update: now includes wing ribs). Converted from PLT tracing for laser cutting, and in Spanish.

Note: 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.

* 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.
