Little Arcy - Radio control sports model.
Quote: - "Little Arcy is a smooth flying job with no mean streaks to confuse the tyro R/C modeler at a time when he can ill afford to be rattled. Powered with an Arden .099 on glow plug, plus a Tornado Plasticote 9in diameter by 4in pitch prop, this ship has a smart climb with snappy turns. And, after about one minute of engine run, it will have enough altitude to practice three or four 360 deg turns on the way down.
The construction is conventional, so rather than a stick by stick account of it all, we will offer a few important pointers which are the essence of a good R/C model. Select your wood carefully, bearing in mind the job it has to do. Pre-cement all joints and let them dry. Reapply cement and join the pieces and you will have a break-proof joint. Silk, paper or nylon covering is left to the choice of the builder..."
Quote: "strange looking plane that is just asking to be built. Plate 1 was a simple 4 times enlargement. The original plate 2 had flying surfaces at 1/4 scale and sections at 1/2 scale so I have separated them and put them onto sheets at full size." This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
