How would someone find out if a plan is no longer in print?

I enjoyed browsing your site. Thanks.

If you want a specific plan, I have lists showing magazine plans and can usually track down most plans. There are odd ones that either were not published or no records remain of them.
I am trying to create a library of the oldies especially kit plans before they all go in the bin. ARTF will have a finite life and we shall return. BUILDERS UNITE!

Thank you

Hi Leadchucker, I now own the original full size model. You can see photos of it at...... https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1269823
See post #12. The size of the original design was around 2.7 metre wing span, wing section is a Grant X8 (undercambered design), power is a .90 four stroke from memory - can't go an look as I'm at work!

Reg Truman, the designer always referred to it as RC-1. It was later reduced to 40% size for 1/2A Texaco and renamed Top Hat. There were no known plans of RC-1 until just recently. I now have this plan being scanned, reworked on to tidy it up, and will post it on this plans site in due course. The plan is only about 40% of the full size but has all the full size dimensions on it as well as full size wing and tail ribs. Another interesting thing to note is that the plan also had the name 'Big Daddy' written on it so Reg possibly called it that.

It is a lovely model to fly in light to moderate winds. Will keep you posted.

Further to my posting, I'm home now and just checked. The RC-1 Wing span is 2.8 metres and engine is a Super Custom .91 four stroke - bags of power and mostly fly on half throttle. Larger engine there primarily as a balancing weight - better than carrying lead! Will try to get video of model in the air next time I'm out but weather looks to be wet for the next few days. Allen

Hi Clipclop, Yes the plans by Selective Draughting Ser (Alan Woolster) plans are a redraw of the Top Hat plans. There are slight differences in the RC-1 "Big Daddy" plan. Basically, the outline shape is the same however. Watch out for the posted copy of RC-1 in due course (a couple of weeks or so). Allen

Here's a little something different: A Bob Palmer Thunderbird. The pictures and plan were sent to me by a gentelman who converted it to R/C. He told me that if he had to do it over, he'd lengthen the tail moment about 2". Other than that, he said it flys pretty nice.

Does anyone have a complete copy of the CO2 powered Cessna 195 by Earl Stahl? Thanks for all of the previously posted plans.

I actually do have that, I believe I found it on the Plan Page.......but I have never been able to scale it correctly to make the two halves fit? I guess I'm not that good with a computer. But thanks for the help.

Somebody on this site posted this tutorial, I think it might have been on the Vintage Old Timers Thread, but I can't remember his name. I am forever grateful for his efforts. Since it has already been posted somewhere I figure it is ok to post it here.
