About this Plan

Comanche. FF IC from Veco. PAA load class model.

The Comanche design dates from 1951. This here is a later redrawn plan, by Joe Wagner himself, dated 1984.

Quote: "The Comanche was designed for a PAA-load competition and was also a fine contest model without the 'occupant'. It was the first kitted free-flight design with a 'Sharp LE' Airfoil. This model used Joe Wagner's special FF adjustment method: 5 degrees left thrust to compel a left-circling climb; right rudder tab to keep nose up under power and produce a right-circling glide. This model was designed and built by Joe Wagner, Aug 1951; Kit engineered by Hi Johnson; issued by Veco in Nov 1951."


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

I am constructing this model. I have made some adaptations to transform it in an electric model. One point of attention is the engine direction. For electric model should be RIGHT down thrust. In the plan is left thrust. Take care with this.

* 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.
