New model from Cubby Aircraft Factory

Unread post by Jean Crous » Sun May 26, 2019 4:46 pm

We are nearing the last phase of a new model from the Cubby Aircraft Factory. This one is a bit more roomy in the front cockpit,an even bigger door than the Cubby MK2, has flaps...actually Slotted Flaps, and has an electically adjustable tailplane for trimmming the aircraft.The main gear legs are longer than the Cubby MK2, making it 150mm longer than the original Cubby.
It will not be much heavier than the Cubby MK2, as we have removed some items , but added some in their place. Maybe 5kg difference.Smaller lighter battery, no trim tab and cable system, in place is a brushless electrical motor.
We plan to be at AERO South Africa, at Wonderboom , from the 4th to the 6th of July , showing our new model frame and wing.
Do come and see us there.
This aircraft will be available in kit form as of July.

Exciting times Jean.
We are all eager to see what she is going to look like.
It's wonderful when something new is created in South Africa.
Well done.

It was on the Canadian register as C-FMLZ, It has been put in Experimental here as ZU-FGP. We are just busy doing a bit of tidying up on her :wink:
I realized that the difference in length between the Renegade and the Clipper is not very much :o
