About this Plan

Madcap - Free flight sports model.

Quote: "Presented in the April 1952 Aeromodeller was the Madcap, a functional plane from the pen of Vic Smeed. It is rugged free flight sports plane for 1cc motors. It would be a good successor for the Tomboy but somehow doesn't seem to have made the grade. The cabin fuselage has some pretty lines, if a bit deep - you could certainly hide some radio gear in there without any problems. It was also presented with a profile pylon fuselage if that rocks your boat, but not for me personally. As with all my drawings please enjoy them and if you build from them measure at least twice before applying the knife." This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

* 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.
