About this Plan
Pucara. Rubber indoor model. Formula Argentina class.
Hi Steve! This is my new plan design: the IA-58 Pucara but in "Formula Argentina" class (something like the Bostonians, but from here). I scanned the original plan in parts because I don't have a good scan machine, hope you can fix the sheet. I'm sending you pictures of my model [model photo & more pics 003-006]. The gliding test is awesome! Hope it fly like it glides!
All 1/16 strips, and sheets, esaki covering, 8grs weight my prototype, 33cm wingspan max, 150mm dia propeller comercial or hand made. I am waiting for the stadium to be free to go for the flight tests. Also including some Uruguayan flags and wings and fuse insignias [supplementary file]. My insignia is "CX-MAP" (cx is for Uruguay). The model needs to show the flag of the country of the modeller in the white portion of the tail. It is one of the rules for the Formula Argentina categ. Best regards, Marcelo Pricoli, JV44 Free Flight School of Uruguay.
PS I made a modifications fron the prototype to the plan the landing gear is move a little forward for keep the CG in place without add nose wieight.
Direct submission to Outerzone.

User commentsHi, looks like a nice model - but the plan does not tie up with Marcello's picture. The u/c on the actual model is one bay forward of the wing not at the leading edge, Something to do with ground stability & cg I guess, its a long nose. Perhaps Marcello would like to comment. regards, MarkM.

Well spotted Mark. My mistake - this was mentioned, but I somehow missed out Marcelo's note re moving the gear location. Have added it into the 'About' section now.

* 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.
