Help!
Curtis JN-4 Jenny Plans

I was hoping someone might know where I can get some plans for a ~35-40" Jenny. I want to build one for a CDR motor I have.

Somewhere I could download some would be great and a rescale from a rubber model would be fine to. I love a good scratch build hence the want for plans rather than a kit or an ARF.

Many thanks,

Matt.

I have the Dumas kit of the Standard, pretty much a Jenny. Those plans are for I think 30".
Also, AerodromeR/C has a 40" Jenny plan and or short kit available. I think the plans are $25.00 U.S.

Ask Pat Tritle too. I think he has plans in two or three sizes.

FWIW, After many requests for a larger Jenny, I went to work and got the plans for the 60" Jenny for the RCHotdeals 1000KV Outrunner and 4 ch. R/C started last week. At this point, the design is about 75% done (enough to build), and the parts are pulled out of the assembly drawings. Nothing is nested yet, and there are a couple of minor hitches left to work out, but for the most part the design is looking pretty good. Sparky is going to work up the plastic parts -- so you KNOW that will be first class stuff -- and will be offering a short kit as soon as it's flown. Meanwhile, I'll run a thread as soon as the build begins.

Aerodromerc.com also sells plans for a 40" ws Curtiss Canuck and a very slightly larger JN-4 (listed as 41.25").

I have six excellent Curtiss Jenny plans in high resolution .PDF format ready to e-mail. E-mail me at rcarswellsr@att.net and mention the Jenny and I will send you what I have. All of the plans can be enlarged/reduced and tile-printed out using the TilePrint computer program which will handle .PDF files. TilePrint can be bought off the web for $16 (US) at http://www.blackflight.com/tileprint/.

ScaleAndTilePDF, an extension of ScaleAndTileImage (Google with "ScaleAndTileImage" for RCG links), is a Java-iText class that can do this as well. If you'll send me copies of the PDFs you mentioned, I'll be glad to use (one or more of) them as test files with the new ScaleAndTilePDF class and give you the resulting scaled/tiled PDFs.

Cheers,
