Description

FOUGA CM.8 R13 CYCLONE

The Fouga CM.8 R13 Cyclone was a jet-powered glider that first flew in 1949.

Based on an original non-powered glider prototype, the Cyclone was developed as an aerobatic aircraft and went on to be an important step in the development of the Fouga Magister jet plane.

This kit is a laser-cut replica of the original Veron model of a Fouga Cyclone, designed to be powered by a Jetex motor. Construction of the model from this kit uses the traditional method of "stick and tissue", that consists of a built up balsa wood skeleton (framework), covered with a tissue skin. The balsa frameworks are built over a plan that is printed at the exact scale of the model, which is in essence a real engineering drawing.

The Jetex motor that would have been fitted to this model is no longer available. Rapier jet motors from the Czech Republic also fit the kit and may be available at model aircraft shows but their supply is unreliable. Some modellers have had success with electric ducted fans (EDF) but again supply can be tricky. Designed for free flight means just that - once the model is launched, it is on its own. It must follow a predetermined flight path established when the model is initially adjusted for flight or "trimmed".

This type of traditional building technique and flying requires a degree of patience and skill, but is extremely rewarding.

This kit is for experienced modellers only with an annotated plan but no instructions
