Bart Denight's DDT Racer
A Peanut scale model designed and drawn by Andre Petit
A big thank-you to Andre for giving me this, as yet unpublished,
plan to post here to share with you. It's a pretty little aircraft,
and the model is well detailed (with scale rib spacing) and a good
flyer. It finished second in class at the 2001 BMFA Indoor Nationals.
Once you open the file you will also be impressed by Andre's draughting skills
- this is a really nice plan!
Some changes have been incorporated into the design since the original
model was built, and these are included on the drawings. The wing is
now flat bottomed, and the tailplane slightly enlarged (stability in
pitch was marginal on the original). These two modifications should
make trimming easier.
Wood sizes are in mm, but easy to convert (0.8 mm = 1/32", 1.5 mm
= 1/16" etc.) As to the French text - well, I'll have to leave
that up to you!
Andre printed his own decals for the model using an ALPS printer,
and if you would like a set, he can supply them at nominal cost -
here here to contact him.
This is my first attempt at saving a plan in PDF format, and it
should print out exactly full size onto three A4 sheets. I have
tried it on three different printers and it worked just fine. One
thing to watch for - remember to uncheck the "Fit to page" option
when printing. I am not sure how it will work on other paper sizes
- let me know if you have problems. As a guide, each wing panel
should measure exactly 16.5 cm, or 6.5".
