Return of Download stats?
I miss the download numbers. It was a good way for me to see if anyone is interested in my designs. I realize that is no guarantee that the plane was built, but that someone though enough of the plan to download it.

Thanks, Fred!

The plans provided were well drawn but it seems like there should be one or more sheets showing more detailed layout views. An very experienced builder should be able to build from what is downloaded but a I believe novice or even an intermediately talented builder would have problems with what's shown.

I can it also delete, but someone give his best for the plan. Not very good, but maybe the first plan. The next will be better...😉

FAI vs National model classes
In the United States, as in numerous other countries that engage in model competitions, contests can be run to either National rules (Academy of Model Aeronautics/US, British Model Flying Association (BMFA)/Great Britain, for example) OR FAI rules, a clear 'either/or' choice. In the US, rubber-powered free flight competition rules were generated, and are updated on a regular basis, by the Flying Aces Club (FAC) which provides great detail on scoring, different classes, and conduct of competitions; the AMA looks to FAC, an aeromodelling Special Interest Group (SIG) to provide this governance, similar to what other specialized SIGs do in other events.

Yngve's point is correct that for Class F4F (Peanut Scale), 13" is the maximum wingspan as per FAI (and FAC) rules. The original designation of this P-51B model, 15 1/2" span, as "Peanut Scale" was a posting error that has now been corrected. It is worth noting that Peanut Scale competitions, at least in the US, are almost always conducted under AMA and FAC rules; for these "National" events, FAI F4F "Peanut Scale" rules are not applicable. The key difference: the FAI "Peanut" definition calls out a maximum 10" fuselage length, the AMA/FAC rules do not. If an "International" F4F competition was ever held, then FAI F4F rules would apply to models competing at that level; this editor has never heard of such, and the F4F rules are only "Provisional", a lesser designation compared to other sanctioned FAI events.

All right, I´ll make them and add to the thingiverse listing. But you have the stl and the .factory files that you could use to produce the gcodes yourself.

Little stick Gcodes seperate.
With every thing printing out great, yes i am building it. I am now stuck with the fact that the Gcodes for the aileron are not seperate anywhere in the files except as STL files.

The plan is only of limited use, as no details of the single parts (spars, ribs, motor mount parts) are shown.

Aileron Thickness
Hi Heiko,

The ailerons are from 6mm Balsa.

I´m about to start building it. I´ve found all I need apart from the aileron thickness.
So would you please post how thick the ailerons are - thanks.

Thank you very much for posting! I moved the listing to the Independent Designers category where more printable models can be found.

If you like you can upload the stl files as a zip package too.

If you have more please share!

Peanut rules
Peanut size model is defined as having either a maximum wingspan of 13” inches, or a maximum fuselage length of 9” inches. These sizes are recognised by the Federation International Aeronautique (FIA), which is the international governing body of model aeroplane competition.
