The scale plane plans are published directions, or guidelines, or instructions to help hobbyists assembling rc scale planes. The scale plane plans are comprised of full sized drawings and instructions of assembling rc scale planes. The scale plane plans not only offer directions on assembling rc planes, but also offer information on rc plane flying.
The scale plane plans are often available in paper form or CAD software. There are many CAD packages for scale plane plans. The scale plane plans are very helpful to the beginner hobbyists. The plans help them learning assemble fine rc scale planes and also offer tips on flying rc planes.
