What is the Balsa Basics Simple Cub?
The Balsa Simple Cub is the start of a new phase for the Vintage Model Company. The Balsa Basics Series is envisioned as a ‘next step’ for those wanting to venture into more traditional model aviation materials without intimidation. Balsa has a reputation for being hard to get into, complex and fragile. The Vintage Model Company has therefore teamed up with the Flite Test to bring you this new range of simple, robust and fun flyers made primarily of wood.
As with Flite Test's foam board, the Balsa Simple Cub goes together with common build techniques. This model will teach you how traditional model aircraft go together with chunky wing ribs and fuselage formers that slot together without the need for a printed plan. This speeds ups your build time meaning you can have a virtually finished airframe ready for covering in just a couple of hours.
The Cub is an ideal trainer. Being a 3-channel aircraft, you can develop your skills from the ground up. to the point that you are performing basic aerobatics such as loops and wingovers with confidence. With a large 1000mm wingspan, you’ll also be able to take on windier conditions
