Can you find a better tranlation than push back plane? Maybe find a picture of one so we know what you mean? I think you mean a pusher plane where the propeller is in the back of the fuselage. But a picture of something similar to what you want would help.

If you want plans to build from then this is not really the right forum. You should post this question in "The Builder's Workshop" forum.

I think he means pusher.

And the reasons are..

1/. few full size planes are like this because it s UNSAFE to have a big engine BEHIND a pilot when he crashes on landing.

2/.Model planes mimic full size.

3/. So props are all made as pullers

4./. so you cant build a pusher easily anyway.

5/. electric motors turn either way, so electric pusher not so hard

6/. gas engines like extra propwash to cool them. They get too hot in pusher mode.

Hello comy
I fly a Pusher Canard with an OS46 FX glow engine about 3 days per week. It is the only Canard I have seen that has rudders, so it can do a knife edge. You can see it at http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1364480 and at other locations. It is a SPAD.
