26" Bowers Fly Baby

26" Bowers Fly Baby

from 44.00

Roger Winger and I collaborated on this design for a 26” rendition of Peter Bowers’ well known and much loved American homebuilt (first flight 1962). To my eye it is basically a low wing Cub and should be a great flyer. Roger did the drawing and all of the balsa layout with some input from me. I did the tissue design work (which has been corrected for the small errors that can be seen on Roger’s prototype). The prototype came in at just under 40g which for a 26” model is very good. I expect that this one will need a DT if flown outdoors.

Kit includes all sheet parts, plus trailing edges, laser cut strip wood, ply parts as well as a Gizmo Geezer thrust button.
