This is my cub the I can scale it up or down the cnc layouts are on 3 sheets of light ply 1200x300x3mm and has the options of light ply rear fuz or 9.3x9.3 hard balsa. The fin and tail are cut from light ply and then you add 4x10mm balsa to bough sides the this gives them good strength with out the weight wing ribs have lighting holes to cep the weight down the 2100m cub weight is around 4.5Kg. The wing have soft wood spars,on the wing cnc layout there is a slot so the ribs slots on to the spar to give the right spacing of ribs the rib-lets are slotted as well the trailing edge center fixing plat and tips are cut from light ply and have a tong and groove joint the trailing edge have slots in them so ever thing lines up the leading edge is made form a hard wood and slotted the same i am using a os 91 4strok

I have posted the original dwg files in a zip please let me no how you get no with them the cnc cub design and cutting flies belong to kitsew aviation with all rights
