Birddog Plans

Well it took me till today but he you go, free to all that wants one, my big Birdog. It flys really great on a IPS S1 or A or B geared motor. Flys soooo easy. Remember to add the bamboo struts and thats all the extra support you need for the wing. The body is double thick fan fold except for the rudder area which is single. Do the wing bends like I show, add landing gear and have a blast.

Here's a picture.

Birddog plans on page 9.

Hellcat on pg 21

Zero on pg 22

P39 on pg 25

Maybe someone will be nice enough to create a tiled PDF file.

Bats are either 340/600/1200 lipoly's. Fly's at 1/2 throttle with ease. Climbs for the stars at full throttle.

It has a 37" span and comes in at 6-7oz ready to go.

No problem, there are enough designs to give and enough to sell.

Plus this one is so much fun to fly and is a classic design, everyone should have one in the old hanger.

Prashanth:

You might have the 'auto-fit to page size' option checked on the print options.

Sometimes Acrobat seems to loose it's mind when going from one paper size to another. That's one reason I try to use the .dxf or .dwg files.

Thanks genebond, I have no idea of how PDF's work, never use them. If it isn't a dwg or dxf I don't use it, trying to print PDF's fustrate me too.

Do you know if Kinko's can print dxf files? If so, do they need to do anything past pages together as you would do with a tiled pdf?

Let's assume Kinko's can print dxf files, will they print on full page, what size paper? 24", 36"?

24x36, "D" size paper and you'll print in full size. Kinko's can do it.
