Peanut Scale Pottier 100 TS
here to download zip file (700 KB)
Many thanks to Andre Petit for sending me this plan,
and to the designer Jacques Delcroix for giving permission to offer
it as a free download.
This peanut scale model, built by Andre, scored the highest flight marks at
the 2000 BMFA Indoor Scale Nationals, and also won the mass
launch "last one down wins" event. Not only is it a superb,
stable flier (even with no dihedral), it is a simple shape,
and fairly easy to build. You could do a lot worse than
attempting this as your first peanut model - makes a change
from the Lacey M-10 anyway! The tricycle undercarriage means
easy take-offs as well - this gives you a 10 second bonus in
BMFA competitions, and also helps to keep you out of the rafters.
In the zip file are four sheets of drawings in JPEG format.
Two are for the full plan, and two are new drawings made by
Andre when he built his examples. These new views were done
because of some distortion in the original plan caused during
photocopying, so may prove useful to builders.
The easiest way to print out the plans is probably to
use a graphics package such Paint Shop Pro - you can specify
the image size in "page set up", and play around until you get
the required 13" wing span. Alternatively, just print out using
"full page", and correct later using a photocopier incorporating
a % zoom function.
