I am looking for plans for a Tucano. Any size will do, as I will rescale it. I want to build it to 1000mm span for electric. I do have 3 views but lack the time to draw the plan. I want it as near as possible to scale.

Thanks all.

Hi Rebell!

I just designed and built an electric Foamy Tucano 3 weeks ago, but I haven't finalized the plans yet. A few persons around the world started asking me about my plans. I need to find time to draft them. Meanwhile you can get my rough plans at this thread.

My Tucano have so far made several successful flights is by far my most successful design ever! Check out the pictures and video on the thread towards the end! I will keep everyone updated once the plans are up!

Here's a picture of my Tucano.

Hi Weelian,

This plane looks very nice. I will build one like this.

I did not say it before, but I am more of an old-time balsa scratch builder. I will convert the plans to balsa, or, keep on looking for a balsa scratch build plan.

Thanks for the info

Rebell

A number of years ago Nigel Hawes published some plans in RCM&E for a balsa BAe Hawk, a Hawker Hunter and also a Tucano.

I built the BAe Hawk and it flew fantastic. I have moe recently built the Tucano, and it is one of my favourite planes. I just used a QRP timed Speed 400 on 8 cells with a GWS 5 x 4.3 prop, and this plane hammers! It easily habd launches which is a bonus.

I have attached a link to Nigel's site where he sells kits, including a 45" Tucano.

Hope this helps.
