Design by Bill Welle

If you are looking for a slow flying model in a size that is easy to handle and see in the air, this may be your next project. Designed by Bill Welle, the Lo 'N Slo uses foam board as the main building material. This is a great material for model airplanes. It is relatively low in cost, light weight, easy to work with, and has a nice smooth paper surface that is easy to decorate. It can be purchased where office supplies are sold as well as many discount stores. Typical sheet size is 30" x 20". The very best foam board for model airplanes is Readi-Board by RL Adams Plastics. It is sold by Dollar Tree. This is the very best foam board for use with the Lo 'N Slo as it is lighter than other foam board brands. If you do not have a Dollar Tree in your area, Readi-Board can be purchased on line from the Dollar Tree web site at dollartree.com.

Specifications for the model are as follows:

Wing Span - 60" (36" Span Sporty Option)
Wing Area - 715 square inches
Flying Weight - 25 ounces
Power - 200 watt electric outrunner motor
Battery - Two cell 2000 mah Lipo

Presented here is the two sheet full size plan, full size part templates (multiple printed sheets taped together where needed), and an illustrated assembly manual. All of the downloadable documents are in the Adobe PDF file format. The full size plan can be taken to a print shop to be printed full size, or it can be printed at reduced scale using the Adobe print scaling features. It can also be tile printed by the Adobe software and then taped together. The part template package should not use any print scaling. When printing the part template package be sure Actual Size is selected for print scaling. The part template package has been set up to print on 8 1/2 by 14 inch sheets of paper (U.S. Legal Size). The assembly manual is set up to print on U.S. letter size sheets (8.5" x 11").
