1958 Piper Tri-Pacer

1958 Piper Tri-Pacer

I was looking for a new electric park flyer project and discovered, to my surprise, that a Piper Tri-Pacer was not available. Apparently, Berkeley and Sterling produced the last Tri-Pacer kits back in the 1950s. Armed with 3-view drawing and my CAD program, I produced a scale 36-inch span electric model with a scale one-piece plastic cowl. It was a cute little model, but later I got the “bigger is better” bug. I wanted to do a larger Tri-Pacer. Simply enlarging my plans was not an option so I started from scratch. I acquired some original Piper factory plans, a complete parts manual and photos and went to work.

  1. I soloed in a Piper Colt PA22.in the early sixties. Aren’t
    the Colt and Tri-Pacer airframes the same except the Colt is 2-place and the Tri-Pacer 4 place. Also no flaps on the Colt. Can your plans,maybe with some modification pass for a Colt?

  2. Beautiful. Plans available?

  3. I have an old kit for a tri-pacer. it has never been assembled. Has a 60 inch wing span.was my Fathers before he died. On my bucket list. will be the next plan I assemble.
