Thanks PD1!

I have a lot of old R/C plane plans that I'm trying to upload.
Some of the plans I've had to break into two sections to reduce file size, and make printing easier.

It seems there are a few glitches in the system as of now. Hopefully in a short time I can upload these plans.

Paul, your da man! Keep em comming! My hard-drive still has lots of space!

Steve

OK, Now I'm not so happy. I can't get any of the plans to download. :( Is it just me?

No problems here with downloading the DR-1 plans I'm salivating over right now! (like I would have a prayer of successfully flying that beast! Maybe much later...)

The glitch you're getting might have something to do with the glitch I'm having trying to upload files around 2MB.

Keep trying, if all else fails I can e mail them to you.

Stevephoon 01-21-2011 03:20 AM

Yea! :D Downloads worked tonight! I'm not sure what happened yesterday.

Thanks again Paul. My collection of plans is still small, but growing thanks to people like you.

H-Ray, I worked at this company when this kit was being produced.
I never built a complete one.
When the kit was in production, Lou's son Gary worked there.
He built the models for the pictures and first kits.
He did a great job, I liked Gary a lot.

This is the older version of the Top Flite plane.
The kit sells for about $90 and I recommend it.

Here's a 1961 design I lifted out of American Modeler. I scanned the views then put the file into Autocad and traced away. Enjoy.

George, I haven't been able to post a lot of my plans because of some conflict with my computer and wattflyer.

I've posted a lot of plans here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1265873

Thanks Michael, back in the early 60's my brother and I flew at the old Craig Road flying site. A strip of bare desert back then. Marty would show up and fly huge Anttic. Really a very nice person and helps us learn to build and fly RC.

Here's one from 1954. The High Q.
Looks like it might have influenced the Tri Squire.
Hope this file is small enough to upload.

Rockin Robbins 07-30-2011 03:02 PM

I'd like to see three things:

1. Frank Zaic's cabin Thermic 50, not the Thermic 50x. JASCO version of course! When I build a Zaic plane I don't want that OTHER guy's design. LOL Is there a plan out there for the Thermic 72?

2. Frank Zaic placed third in the world in the 1934 Wakefield International Cup. I can't seem to find the plans to that plane and would love to have them!

3. Zaic's most successful tow line glider was his Floater, a vastly simplified plane that abandoned all subtlety for one guiding principle. He found that all the airfoil tables were irrelevant because the angle of attack was not the designed 2 or 3 degrees but six on a free flight glider. Therefore he changed the angle of incidence so that the fuselage was flying level while all the other planes were flying about 3 nose up! Then he introduced the canted stabilizer to force the plane into a tight but stable turn in glide mode. It was a simple matter of towing the Floater to altitude, fiddling around up there until a thermal was encountered and releasing the plane. It basically executed a flat turn, almost pivoting around a wingtip. I understand it self-centered in the thermal. Releasing a Floater in a thermal was a guaranteed max! That's one I'd love to have.

Here's the Thermic 50 I have. Someone asked about the 50x earlier and I don't have it.

Is this Thermic 50 the one you wanted?

I have a Thermic 72 around here somewhere.
First I have to find it, then I have to scan it, then I have to re assemble it and clean it up.
Probably this fall.
Don't have the Floater.

Dimeflyer 07-30-2011 08:02 PM

Verry nice planes and I'm hopeing I can tile them soon !!
Thank you Pd1 I like colecting plans almost as well as building and flying
the planes ,I love building planes and wooden toys for the youngsters to
to play with !!

Absolutely! That fuselage looks like it could be difficult. What they did routinely in the 1930s is difficult for us! Me, anyway. Thank you! This one is a keeper. I may scale up the fuse and use it with the Thermic 72 wing for a non-pod and boom 6' wingspan. I'll decide when I get to see your work on the 72. That will be worth waiting for!:D

a fantastic set of plans to have here would be the Hots and the Super Hots ones. someone out there? :rolleyes:

Frank Zaic designed Thermic 72.
I redrew the wings and stab so they should be straight.

Verry nice but to buisy a plan for me any more ,besides that I would not be able to haul it in my S10-Chevy unless I made a box for it in the bed and I don't know
if I like that idea all that well ?
I would worry about it bounceing to much and geting crushed , I have air shocks
under the rear end and they are heavey duty and ride like a set of 6"x 6"s are there
in place of the normal stuff !!
I thank you for the plan ,I put it in the plans file in case some one else might need
a copy some day !!

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

Hi George,
I bought a used X cargo roof top box for $30. You could put one in the bed of the pick up and haul your planes with impunity.
Nice and light, easy to move around alone.

I have seen guys buy used truck tool boxes take the trays out and line them with foam to haul planes also . Nice glider Paul. joe
