Ray Images View all Images in thread Views: Couple of ads from early gfaupner To return to the Topsy, currently my plan is for it to be std size, though having actually cut a few parts out I have been surprised at how small they are – especially as my other model under construction is a 52″ Jack Headley Piper Cub.

However, given the general windiness of the club flying site, I actually don’t want this model to be too light; also what with wind and push button control I want to ensure that it has an element of impact strength! A “rich kids” toy?
This plan was online at April 22, in: If we discover that content is being stolen, we will consider filing a formal DMCA notice. 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.
Getting a bit long in the tooth now Colonel! Greets ; My site http: I may be able to put together something once I do a search but I doubt I’ll make the next Ponte ‘do’ but you never know The flight characteristics of Topsy are good and the payload radio control can be up to the weight of the model itself. Weight is gram ready to fly. Colonel the Topsy looks like a fine model and I’ll be watching your build Was home on R and R over the weekend so Lindsay was able to take photos of my three latest builds from plans taken from your awesome site.
While I would dearly love to join you and the Topsy at the annual single channel rally, I am afraid it would be a rather long and cold swim across the Atlantic, but I am certain you have chosen well and that you will end up with a fine flying model.
Then email admin outerzone.
I considered following the tab and slot fus construction of the original, but I felt that as I was using a scalpel and ruler rather than a skilfully produced frame cutter for die crushing, the tabs would prevent me from using sanding block and engineer’s square to ensure accuracy; so I’ve gone with plain rectangular formers.

Just wanted to share my Graupner Topsy built from the plan on your site [more pics ]. Yup, that’s garupner kiddy, George!
I had wanted to get hold of one of the blue MacGregor Txs to convert as that was what I was continually trying to save up for as a lad, but even on ebay they have started to command stupid prices so it’ll probably just be in a plastic box.
Sifting through to find the single channel models, I was very tempted by Dave Platt’s Half Tone, but when I saw the Graupner Topsy, I felt that the design looked far more graupher than and has to my eyes at graaupner, very pleasing lines.
Gaupner that doesn’t always happen. Tx was a Mcgregor “Crystal controlled” which sadly I don’t still have – but I DO have the one in the photos below, which, given our age difference I suspect may be the one you are lusting after. All content is free to download for personal use. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet.
The small size can produce substantial benefits, handiness, I really wanted to post yesterday, but unfortunately I was stuck in a meeting room in Belgium until 7: Scaling This model plan like all plans on Outerzone is supposedly scaled correctly gruapner supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. So I started my research in the time-honoured fashion – ie I hit the Outerzone scene, man!
Perhaps you might even make the cut for their You Tube video Oct 01, Feel free to copy and use any excerpt, name, tag, anything you like.
Scale The Topsy plans is supposed to be scaled correctly, a good way to be sure about this it to open it with adobe PDFreader and measure the parts checking if they fit together. Maybe, but that wasn’t me, remember I had been earning a living since which was why I could afford “expensive” kits and escapements! Images View all Images in thread Views: JeffMac I’d rather be flying With modern gear I do not believe that the completed model will be within a country mile of that max weight.
In keeping with my normal modus operandi the first stage was to import the OZ pdf into DraftSight and begin the tracing. The credits are a way to recognize work done with the plans, may be scanning, tracing, cleaning, restoring, scaling the Topsy model airplane plan.
Topsy oz Home Topsy. Last edited by Sundancer; Sep 28, at Current was c4A, which was nice.
Added sheet 2 of plan, plus English translation, thanks to Colonel Blink. Fopsy chance I get, I shall post a little more about my intentions for the model.
The original plan sheet 2 which is not on OZ but I shall send it in – it’s all in German, but I am working on a translation as well gives the FF weight graupnre cg [7oz] and the weight with radio as c – g [c14 – 16oz]. Page 1 of 24 1.
