The Pond Racer was an unique and very tasty unlimited-class racer developed for Bob Pond, with the aim to win the Reno Air Races. Itís a shame that this striking aircraft, purely optimized for performance, was plagued by lack of engine reliability and performance. The unfortunate outcome of Rickís forced landing, adds to the controversy. Rest in Peace.
I think the Pond racer is one of the most sexiest planes ever designed. I just had to make plans for it. There are several gifted builders who have made there own scratch build model Pond Racers, and apparently they all fly great.
Enjoy these free plans. Questions and remarks are very welcome, and the answers and solutions will be added to the plans. I plan to keep track on updates.
