About this Plan

McCann-ard 27 - Free flight canard model for Cox .010 power.

Quote: "To test out this revised layout, a small (27in span) model was built powered by a TD .010 and this model is a real pleasure to fly. It seems to be quite free from vices and stability is impressive. In spite of such a small engine (which actually develops suprising power) the climb is very steep and 'on rails', and the glide very good. The layout thus arrived at seems to be the most promising for duration canards, and will give conventional models a run for their money..."

Here's our MaCann-ard 27 free flight converted to electric [more pics 004-007]. 4600kv motor, 2-cell 160mah lipo battery and a Brodak timer. Very easy to trim out. On only 68% power climb out is almost vertical and transition to glide seamless. Enlarged the plan to 36" for E-36 competition. Should be a "goin' concern"! Powered by Cricket Wireless.

* 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.
