I finally finished the Taco plans... Here they are in both dxf format and AutoCad 2000 format...

It's a .25 size fun fly that flys really well with a BB .25 engine. It was originally designed by Troy Smith (aka MiL) I did a little redesign with a tripple tappered wing and modified tail surfaces. I have a Irvine .25 in mine. Here's are rest of the specs:

Wing area: 450 sq in.
Weight: 2.25 - 2.5 lbs.
Wing Load: 12.8 oz / sq ft.

Ready for the maiden flight...





A lot heavier than I wanted... 2lb 11 oz... tried to save weight here and there. Imagine a lighter engine woulda made a difference. This GMS .32 is 12.65oz. Hoping a 10x3 will pull it around okay.

The carbon fiber ribbon I put on the spruce member down the middle of my fuse just didn't cut it so I added a piece of Carbon Fiber Strip bolted in place with 2-56 hardware. Very rigid tail now.

Now I just need a good day at the field.
