Bugaboo Plans


Anyone know where you can get a 3-view or set of plans for a bugaboo? Should I look in the free flight forum?

Thanks,

They have spelt the name wrong but it's the one. It was a free plan in Aeromodeller.

Thanks for the link. I hate paying $20 for a plan though. Maybe I'll freehand the fuselage and the rest should be easy.

It was in the April 1994 edition of Aeromodeller. Perhaps if anyone has a copy they could scan it.

An itch?. Scratch build.

I wondered what the Bugaboo looked like so did a search and came up with an interesting site on 'flikr'.

The is a whole load of vintage model pictures on the first page, if you hover your cursor over a thumbnail picture it sometimes comes up with the name, there are a few pictures of the Bugaboo, (various Mk's), click on the thumbnail to show it bigger.

The next very interesting thing came when I looked at page 2, (there's a link just below the pictures), there is a whole load of pictures of plans there.

Certainly well worth a look.

Edit, nearly forgot the link - Model Airplanes and Dutch Vintage Plans

I have the plan in my files and can have it copied for mailing, if you wish.

Have always wondered why it has been so popular .... ugly !

I can send you a Bugaboo scan if you pm me your email.
I have an enlarged one, about 50" span.
It's flown with an ED Comp Special, ED Penny Slot, ED Hunter Series 2, Indian Mills 3.46 RC and now it has an ED Hunter Green Head with ED carb.
I like variety!.
As RC Elevator/ruddder it flies well, no Dutch roll and loops and rudder rolls well.

Ugly? maybe, but fun.

It's really nice to see Joost Bakker has put some of those old plans online. Most of them have been issued by the Technical Commission of the KNVvL (Dutch AMA) and haven't been available for decades (sadly, the KNVvL has no plans archive ).

FYI: Joost Bakker has long been a driving force behind the (long gone) Dutch Sam Chapter 401. To my knowledge he gave up modeling long ago.

Thanks for the offer but let's see if the scan from Warren works out. That would be a lessor imposition on everyone.

Thanks again,

Hey Warren,

Got a couple of quick questions about the plan: What is the width of the fuse supposed to be? I see where F1, 2 & 3 go, but what about the rest. Also, what is the wing span? I want to make sure that I scale it properly when I print it out.

Thanks,

Chuck

Hi Chuck,
The measurement to the plan border line is 34 1/4" on both plans.
The span is actually dead on 1050 mm (Joost is a Dutchman so metric is not suprising) works out to 41 3/8".
The fuselage is built by fitting the 3 formers, then just pull the rear end together and cut the remaining cross pieces to fit.
