The Caudron was built by Thayer Syme here on RCG. You likely can send him a PM if you want more info (Thayer's name is his handle too).

What do you want to know about the Caudron? I should have a few useful answers.

Caudron c561


Thanks Thayer
I am building/designing a C561 1/4 scale version and was concerned about the tail group and the wing tip stalling.

I was similarly concerned about horizontal tail volume until i did the math. There is plenty on the 450 and the 561 looks about the same at first glance. Given that you have it well drawn, I would give it a quick check to ease your mind.

As for the vertical area, my model feels a little unstable in yaw, but nothing that can't be controlled with the left hand. Again, I would compare moments with some other models that work well for you and see where it falls. My eyeball engineering says it should be okay and I wouldn't hesitate to build a smaller model without doing the math first. Quarter scale is getting to be a good commitment though, and at that point I would juggle a few numbers first.

The 561 is definitely a cool project as well. What are you planning for power?

I am partial to Hyperion motors so it will be something in the 6-8S pack range.I don't think there is much difference as far as wing/tail surface between the 450 and 561.The ruder on the 561 is huge.Wing span is 65 inches at this scale.I do have a French plan of the C450 but I prefer to draw my own because that one is full of butt joints being old school.What size is your model?

1:5, so a 53-inch span, and 57 LAO. It flies very light at 66 oz.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for your enthusiasm. My Caudron is definitely not ready for prime time yet, but there may come to pass a time when short kits are available. In the meantime, here are a couple shots of the entire NFARS line up as well as a very nice one Miss Micki caught of the Caudron in the air.

No, there is not build log for a couple reasons. Most importantly, I didn't have time to document it all as I was working along and still get it done for the show. There is a lot of 3 am in that airplane. Truth be told, it is still far from done.
