About this Plan

Cherokee Arrow 200 Piper PA 28-R - Radio control scale model for Webra .61 power. Veneered foam wings. Scale is 1/6.

Quote: "Have you ever wanted to build a good Scale or Stand-Off Scale model that was easy to research, flexible in color scheme, and several models of the same manufacture could be built from the set of plans? Then look no further, here it is. With very little change, you can build the Piper Cherokee 140 and 180.

I built the Arrow 200 because I wanted retracts, but the 180 is identical, except for the fixed gear, and the 140 is the same but has two side windows instead of three. The fuselage, wing, tail assembly, and cowling are the same for all, at least for Stand-Off purposes. A little checking will show the slight differences in the cowling and vents.

The real joy of this model is that at almost any airport, you can find a Cherokee to photograph and get your color plan from. This is a 1969 model, and if you go to a 1971, or newer, you gain another advantage. In 1971, and newer models, the wing and stab were increased two feet in span (4in on model), chord and airfoil remain the same. On this model, that's 45 square inches more area, and that makes the loading less per square foot.

Every measurement on this model is 100% scale, as is every shape and outline, including the wing and stab airfoil, so let no scale judge tell you differently, or make him prove it. This model scored 103 to 107 (out of a possible 110) in Stand-Off Scale, and 352 (out of a possible 450) at the 1973 Nats.

If you are still interested, let's get started. To use an old phrase, this is not a beginner's project, so I will only try to explain what may not be too obvious on the plans, or anything of an unusual nature in construction..."

Steve - Found a photo of the model on the cover of the attached image from '74 [see model photo & more pics 003].

Hello Outerzone Friends. Some modifications were made to the Don Condon Cherokee Arrows 200 plan, such as increasing the wingspan to 76 in, length to 53 in and a landing gear fixed [more pics 005-011]. The wing is now a tapered wing, no more a Hershey bar wing. The scaled interior as such: coutains, control panel, etc. Thank you all Outerzone! From Brasilia - Brazil.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
