Golden Era Model Service Title Page __ John Eaton'sMain Home Page
Aeronca built this low wing design, their
only pre-war low wing, in 1936. 66 were built, and at least three
still exist today. This model was featured in the March 1986
Scale R/C Modeler magazine. The model does consistently well in
flight scores at contests because of its smooth flying
characteristics, and is the subject of an extensive article in
one of Paul Matt's Historical Aviation Albums, so you can also do
well in the static competition, as the prototype has. The scale
airfoil is used, and the balsa, plywood, and spruce structure
closely replicates the original for excellent scale fidelity. Templates
for the landing gear spats are included. The wing comes apart in three
sections for easy portability. The OS 1.20 four stroke or
equivalent is sufficient power for the LC. The airplane is a
knockout on floats, and can be documented as a floatplane. The
(75 sq ft) are accompanied by building notes and photos.
I redrew these plans in AutoCad in April 2015 and later this year will be introducing a laser cut set of parts for the 1/4 scale LC. I have an extensive selection of photos of an LC under restoration which I will be adding to this website soon.
