I eat glue
I think he designs them with" intentional weak spots", so to speak, so that breaks rather than the whole bird. I did the same with mine, but it got destroyed in my move to Nova Scotia from Manitoba (2800 miles in a U-Haul truck). Gotta get another one.

Hey Pat, building this kit now and confused by the A2A label in the center section of the wing on the plans. I don't see the diagram you reference at all. A2A appears to go out at the outer end of the spars. Am I right?

Also, there has been a bit of confusion with gluing the two piece main (Part #A1 & A1A) and rear spar sections (Part #A2 & A2A) together. The spars are over 24" in length, and since the cut sheets are only 24" long, the spars had to be cut in two sections. A diagram for that has also been added to the plans to help clear up ant further confusion as to how they join up.

Just realized that there are two different parts labeled A2A. I'll figure it out.

Thread OP
The reason the spars are built up in 2 sections -- inner and outer -- is because the cut sheets are too short to send the spars in one piece. The assembly drawing is on Sheet 1 of the plans directly below the R. H. wing showing the orientation of A2 & A2A. The A1/A1A and A3/A3A spars go together the same way, per the assembly drawings on the upper RH side of the same drawing.

Another bush flying cub


I recently finished building this nicely designed cub. I mostly followed the design, but made some small adjustments here and there (most notably, the wing can be separated in two). And I followed the ideas presented previously in the thread about making it a bush fly version with big trexler wheel (I made them a bit thinner as also suggested). Flying is great, had no idea a non-foam plane could fly that slow (with flaps down). I used a 2S power system with 1300 mAh lipo, which is totally adequate.
