40% J-3 Piper Cub
designed and drawn by Jim Messer
We are pleased to release a set of drawing for the 40% J-3 Cub. The three sheets of detailed drawings also comes with a full color 37 page photo instruction manual and a CD with 183 detailed construction photos you can view in larger detail with your computer. This sport scale Cub is a delight to fly and has over 30 successful flights on it before the plans were released.
The plane has a 14 foot two piece wing, fuselage length of 108″ and weighs 42 lbs. Ready to fly. The prototype was powered with a DA-100 swinging a 27×10 prop, but engines as small as the Zenoah GT80 would be fine. This is not a beginners plane, but anyone who has build a giant plane before should have no problem. The wings are constructed using a building fixture made from scrap wood you have in your shop. The plane is covered in Ceconite and painted with Behr latex paint. The formula for the Cub Yellow in Behr paint is included in the instructions.
