Cessna 177 Cardinal

This is another scratch built and designed aircraft by my dad, Phil. This a sport scale, of the not so famous Cessna 177 Cardinal. Dad chose the 177 because of its sleek modern lines, and its cantilever wing. Its a very capable aerobat, surprisingly the Cessna will knife edge, snap roll, spin, very smooth axial rolls with little adverse yaw, near 1:1 thrust to weight, and has manageable pitch and roll coupling. However, on low rate, this aircraft is capable of training the most inexperienced pilot. Its all balsa construction, and is covered in Monocote.


48 span
379 sq wing area
38.5 long
37.5 oz all up weight with battery
14.25 oz sq ft wing loading


3x HS-81
1x HS-81MG (rudder and nose wheel steering)
Electron 6 Rx
CC Phoenix-25 ESC
