PD1, you are really something! 2.5 hours to come up with the Thermic 50 you were asked. Terrific!

I have the plans for two planes that I never built, but always dreamed of. The Gold Sniffer, an impressive design from the 50's. And the Lil' Eaglet, by Bob Aberle. Tiny, tiny radio receivers and servos were my boyhood dream as I built and flew rubber-powered delights (I still feel my grin at the glide after a "rubber" near-vertical). Today's radios... wow! Glad I am alive.

I'll scan and upload, but am unsure the image quality will be fine. I'll try and do my best.

The Sailwing 50, flying wing. A bit rare, but I like the looks of this one.

With today's foam and cf tubings, the Wow factor for this is baby is :$:$:$
Guess it will carry a camera without even noticing.
Wow!
Thanks, PD1, you are a great fellow!

Thanks Air-on. The reason I was able to come up with the plan so fast was I had already scanned it and cleaned it up for posting on another forum, it only took a few seconds to download it to this forum.

I've uploaded over a hundred plans to this site:

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1265873

I would have liked to uploaded them here as well, but I keep getting problems between my computer and here.

PD1, I have checked the link, and it is a treasure! The "Gold Sniffer" that I have (from Flying Models, June 77) was an .35 "update" of the Sniffer you published there.
Now would you by any chance have the plans for the Cessa AgWagon? I love it, the most beautiful ugly plane ever! :)

These are DXF files that I can't open.

Hah, that was a big surprise, and you know why? I am originally from Brazil, and a fan of Embraer!
Thanks man, this is a great starting point, you just wait for the pictures! :)
A great week to you and all in this great forum.

If you have a particlular interest in a plan that might have been posted in the RCG Vintage and Old Time plans forum you can go to:
http://www.outerzone.co.uk/
where Steve has most of the plans available for download and it is searchable.

Also there is a searchable index at:
http://www.outerzone.co.uk/vinplandex/

That lists each plan in that long running (over 7000 messages so far) thread. The last link points back to the page where the plan was posted. It does not go all the way to the post itself but both resources make it easier to see what has been posted and even download it.

Hope you find them useful.

I have been to steves great site before and i even pointed out to him where a tidewater pronto plan was to be found and he loaded it up . My first plane i owned was a pronto and it flew very well .My 8 year old son is learning now and i wanted him to own one also . :D joe

I thought some of your posts had almost a 100 in each post! Thank you for all the plans. I particularly enjoy the ones you have been posting to RCG.

I've been learning how to shrink files a bit smaller, so here goes.

From 1971, Aamco Minimaster.
I converted one to electric and it flies great

1972 Sig Kadet

This is the original Kadet, designed by Claude Mc Cullough.
The plan was quite large so I redrew the plan onto two sheets and added the aileron information.

Caudron C-460 by Megow
 
2 Attachment(s)
A friend of mine let me scan and clean up a plan of Megow's Caudron Racer.
It's not RC yet, but it will be.

The pdf plan can be scaled up by Staples to twice size and still be a workable plan.

Before you ask, these were designed for control line.
I think they still can be updated a bit and re sized to make great electric powered RC planes.
These were drawn during WW II.

Another Modern Hobbycraft plan that was sent to me by Andy Kunz.
I redrew it and added missing wing and spar halves.

Nice plane, would even be a nice foamy.

Thanks Barry. This will be it for now or until the weather gets bad again.
Now it's flying time again.

Thanks Joe,
I have around two thousand plans to sort through, If there are any particular type you would like, let me know and I'll put them to the top of the scan list.

Yes. Is there anything in particular?
Some I would have to e mail because of possible copyright infringement.

Paul

Turbojoe 07-09-2012 04:35 AM

Just about anything general aviation would be cool. 310, Seneca, Duchess etc. Short Skyvan would be awesome. Probably the ugliest airplane ever but for some strange reason I want one.

Civilian multi engine
 
1 Attachment(s)
There isn't a lot out there for civilian multi scale.
I'll post what I have, but some are not my scans but plans I found on the web.
I can't redo the ones I found on the web because they're PDF files and my version of Photoshop is so old it won't open PDFs made from newer versions.

So here they are.

First up Aero Commander 680
