Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsI built this Chacal, from Outerzone plans, for my son in law as a trainer. I think it will look good on a a set of floats when he is done with it (if it's still flyable!!). Since you do not have a picture of the Chacal, here are a few for you to use, if you would like.

Hi again. Maiden flight of this airplane was very interesting. If it comes off the ground too early it will tip stall very quickly. Luckily no damage. On the second attempt, it came off smooth and straight at about mach 1. It was not a very stable aircraft. Very fast. Certainly not trainer material. After building another wing with a larger airfoil and about 3” overall dihedral, it is nice to fly. Solid and forgiving. Still a little too fast to be a great trainer though. Next step will be the addition of floats.

The Chacal was designed as an aerobatic trainer; not a basic trainer. Modelhob's basic trainer was the Coyote (better with ailerons).

* 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.
