Plan: The CardinalDavidD on 15/04/2021 00:31
NOT Cessna
This mistake is floating around all the plans sharing sites. There is absolutely NO mention of Cessna on the plan or in the article. This model, while looking similar to a full scale airplane is NOT based on the Cessna 177 Cardinal, because the model was published in 1964. The Cessna Cardinal was released as a 1968 airplane. The Cessna Cardinal did not exist when this sport model was developed!! So please remove "Cessna" from the plan title.

this has been mislabeled as a Free-Flight
This is a design for control line. Please note the bellcrank evident on the plans. Thanks!

Albatros DVa, your comments
Mike J, as noted in the original set of plan comments, buildng & flying this model takes a highly skilled modeler and it's clear that you're one of those rare individuals! Congratulations! If you have good photographs of your model, pls forward and those can be posted. Thanks for your most informative comments!

I built this as a long term project and it flies beautifully on a 61 FS.

Very steady in the air and easy to handle. It flies with quite a bit of momentum and requires a good dose of rudder in the turns.

I built it pretty much as per the plan but used all cables rather than a torque rod for the ailerons. If building it again I would go for sacrificial wing spars in the lower wings as I cracked a wing spar through pilot error and this would make it an easy fix and make the lower wings removable. I would also include the strut extensions for the lower wings as this would give a means to adjust the wing incidence.

This model is an absolute gem.
