    Anyone remember the MACO Vaga?

    Looks interesting. Anyone familiar with it? I'd love to have a set of white walls as seen on the box art...

    I believe Kavan made the white wall tires. Not very well accepted in the states.

    RE: Anyone remember the MACO Vaga?

    Hi,

    It was in "New Items" section of Model Airplane News April 1973 so it is a rather old design.
    They writethere "Complete Pattern or Open Pylon kit" so it was also meant as a suitable plane for Pylon racing it seems (not sure in what class - "Open"?).

    "Open" pylon was just that, it was open to most anything you wanted to fly. Formular I, and Quarter Midget both had to be at least a stand off scale of a real pylon racer. A lot of new guys got their start in open just to get a taste of flying around the pylons. It was a fun event and a lot of crazy flying. Yahoo..

    RE: Anyone remember the MACO Vaga?

    Flew 1 for years. Loved it. Rossi 40 (piped and muffled), 2 gear retracts. Have found 2 more and will fly again, when I get time to build. It was fast. Fuse very light, wing (and stab) balsa covered and quite heavy.
