Coro Cub? Anyone built one?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Winter sucks. I need something to build, I've only got about 5 unfinished projects in the shop now, what is one more. Have any of you guys built a spad cub from the plans on spad to the bone. I'm thinking I would make it about 20-25% larger than the plans. That way I can get some of the coro mountain out of my garage. It will be powered with an axi 4120/18 and CC Pheonix 85. All up weight I'm guessing will be between 9 and 11 lbs, haven't put much thought into it yet. It should also have a set of flaps installed, just to complicate matters. Any thoughts, suggestions, or comments would be appreciated.

Hmm, Wonder what I can build from that shrapnel?

Would your creative talents be up to changing things to make it a Coro Citabria? Or at "Clipped" wing Cub, I found the plans from SpadToTheBone build a real floater, that doesn't like too much wind, perhaps I built it too light though at 4 lbs 9 oz

I'm not going to get too creative with the first one. I did scale it up to 96" wingspan. I got out the scale and figure it should weigh between 9 and 10 pounds when completed. I've only got the spar built wings cut and have started marking out the fuse so far. My 3 year old helper isn't much help but she is interested, all good. She got to pick the colors, red wings green fuse.

At 10 pounds the thing should float like an eagle. I've been toying with putting a small set of flaps on her. I think that idea will have to wait for the next wing. Probably a clipped wing if this one floats too badly. I kind of want it for a camera platform so a floater would be good. If this one works out I may build another for a Saito 65 that needs a home, possibly go even bigger. The one piece wing would be a drawback if you needed to pack it to the field. I'm lucky I can taxi out of the garage and fly.

Well kids are in bed back to work. Hope to have it airworthy by Sunday.

I built one according to the STTB plans. I did the build thread in rcuniverse. (Not quite done with the post as I lost a few pictures in the camera. I'll finish that thing yet this month.)It's ready to go up but I broke a couple of my ribs this moring and the wind is supposed to be 25 mph plus for the next week. I'll give a flight report soon I hope.
