Large scale RC airplane plans

If you're an experienced builder and flyer of rc planes, there's surely nothing more satisfying than building a large scale model from a plan!

Canadian aeromodeller Bob Bishop has designed four fantastic models and I'm happy to say that his plans for these beautiful rc airplanes can now be ordered through this website.
The plans are available as CAD files or hard-copy, and the aircraft are as follows...
