Title: PDF of Plans from RCM
Post by: GuyOReilly on March 25, 2020, 02:16:22 pm
With the isolation in full force, I searched (re-searched) old magazines for ideas of planes that could be suitable for small electrics.
I came across a few that are 1/2A (Cox TeeDee and the like) that could be easily converted to electric.
Should you be interested, the PDF could be enlarged to any suitable scale.
Also, I have the full construction articles but did not copy them here.
Scratch building is FUN and very rewarding. 
Enjoy!

Guy,

Thanks for posting.  The first one you put up was the one that Rob and I built and maidened on March 19.  A great little flyer.  The scary part is that I was around when it was first published in 1972.

The best post is the Tiger Moth because now I know the balance point (CG) and the actual shape of the "N" shaped interplane struts.  It is the one for the 80 year-old retired pilot.  Very useful.  Thank you.


Frank

That is not scary, I had been bashing balsa wood for a few years at that time and I was working on my private pilot licence. 
Let me know if you need the full article on any of these and I will PDF the file.
Have a great day!
Guy
