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? In keeping with my normal modus operandi the first stage was to import the OZ pdf into DraftSight and begin the tracing. With modern gear I do not believe that the completed model will be within a country mile of that max weight.
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. While I would dearly love to join you and the Topsy at the annual graupneer 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.

I have a feeling that it may have been significantly more expensive and so could have been a bit of a rich kids’ toy.

Unfortunately I can’t offer it to you as I am concious of a growing urge to try this single button thing again myself – but I won’t be using the matching 27 Mhz Rx and motorised rudder and motor escapements which I also have! Sep 29, So I started my research in the time-honoured fashion – ie I hit the Outerzone scene, man! The small size can produce substantial benefits, handiness, Single channel RC gfaupner.
Help us make a correction. Promoting strength brings me on to another thread of my philosophy with this model.
Had not built a balsa plane for decades and the experience was good fun. Next chance I get, I shall post a little more about my intentions for the model.
JeffMac I’d rather be flying Sundancer I like real wooden aeroplanes!
Colonel the Topsy looks like a fine model and I’ll be watching your build Yup, that’s the kiddy, George! The site layout was done using Twitter Bootstrap.
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. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet.
I had originally written ‘any modifications’ but there are always modifications!!! We browse the web graupjer plans and present them with info from the originating website. Oh yes, and from my experience you are on safe ground with the choice of model, my Topsy was a lovely performer. The flight characteristics of Topsy are good and the payload radio control can be up to the weight of topsu model itself.
This will change soon. 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.

Just wanted to share my Graupner Topsy built from the plan on your site [more pics ]. 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 as cg [7oz] and the weight with radio as c – g [c14 – 16oz]. About this Plan Topsy. All content is free to download for personal use. 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.
This was built a few years ago, starting off as diesel free flight but now converted to electric rc. Let’s ‘ave a butcher’s at this then
