1/2A cardboard airplane


I remember building a C/L cardboard airplane for a black widow .049 from a model airplane news magazine when I was a kid. the planes are all long gone but I have alot more cardbord than balsa wood as there are no local hobby shops here in maine. Would any of you know where I could find r/c cardbord airplane plans. If not I'll probably just wing it. Thanks in advance. (just need something to hold me over till I get my cloud ranger.)

You are better off using Coroplast; more fuelproof.

Not to say that cardboard doesn't work, any idea when the MAN plan appeared?

Here's the plan from deep in the archives (Feb. 1970 issue of American Aircraft Modeler) for the cardboard cutie which could be built for CL or free flight. I would think that if it would make a good free flight, it would be better w/simple R/C. For other ideas, you may want to check out http://www.fiddlersgreen.net/ which has a huge collection of plans for paper models. I know that there are many guys in some of the other forums who scale up these plans and build them from fan-fold foam. I would have to think that cardboard would work also although it would be significantly heavier. Good luck!
