These free RC airplane plans are generally more suitable for intermediate to advanced RC modelers. The aircraft often require more individual components and complex construction, for more realistic scale models. A few more basic plans, such as simple foamies, might be included in some of these collections. First-time builders may want to try the less complex, easy-build airplane plans
Some plans are in PDF format, requiring the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. Others are available only in CAD formats such as DWG or DXF. You may need to download a free viewer to view and print these plans.
