The West Wings Piper Cub is primarily designed as a rubber powered free-flight model but with an eye on the possibility of conversion to electric power and even micro R/C. She was the first West Wings model to utilise our CNC production technology and introduced many modellers to this modern technique for the first time.
The design features a combination of traditional 'stick over plan' construction combined with slot-together CNC components to give the right mix of strength and low weight without the need to cut out everything from printed sheets first. The accuracy of this method has been a revelation to traditional modellers and removed the cutting skill that daunted newcomers.
The true scale outline has been retained where practical and enhanced with the choice of an effective wing section to provide amazing flight performance.
This is an ideal model to choose as a first scale, rubber-power subject for free flight. Features such as the 'knock off' wings prevent substantial damage in those early trimming flights and maximise the possibility of success.
The included propeller and Tan rubber are fine for 'sports' type flying but the substitution of a high efficiency propeller increases the performance considerably.
