Curtiss "Page Navy Racer"

Air Trails/Modern Hobbycraft's Curtiss "Page Navy Racer"

The Curtiss XF6C-6 "Page Navy Racer" was the "land" version of a float equipped pylon racer, the F6C-3, that Glenn Curtiss designed and which was quite successful in Schneider Cup racing against other float-equpped planes. In addition to replacement of the floats by conventional landing gear, the XF6C-6 aircraft was extensively modified, incorporating significantly improved streamlining and a more powerful power plant, to be competitive in Thompson Trophy races in the early 1930s. The model presented here is a 1/2A-powered 30" span free flight model by legendary model designer Walt Musciano, better known for his small control line models, including many designs kitted by Scientific Models in the 1950s. The model shown would be quite adaptable for control line sport flying, or radio control flight using modern electronics and electric propulsion.

Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
