    Cub Scout Trainer

    I took time away from my normal building time to assemble a CL trainer for a group of Cub Scouts and the result is what I call the "Scout". Based on a design that Marvin Denny has in his fleet, this design will be used to teach some cub scouts how to fly a CL model in a few weeks. This model was built from my own plans and has a foam wing, balsa skins and is fiberglassed with 3/4 ounce glass with finishing resin.

    This model is powered with a OS-25FP (RC carb locked off to ful throttle), 41" span and weights a little over 2 lbs. Flew very nicely on it's maiden flight.

    We will be teaching a group of Bear Cub Scouts to fly a few weeks and then again in the spring.

    This model is also dedicated to Rusty Brown, some of the balsa wood used to build this model came from his estate, Rusty may be gone, but his spirit is still flying with the kids and this model.

    Better looking than most trainers.

    RE: Cub Scout Trainer

    No one asked about the missing rudder?

    Glad to see someone keeping potential new comers interested!

    The Cub Scouts sounds like a good idea. Might check into that this coming summer.

    RE: Cub Scout Trainer

    Yep, a rudder would be for looks only

    We will see how good looking the trainer is after we teach 24 bear scouts how to fly CL....that is why it has wing skids and no paint. I can easily patch the holes and re-fiberglass.

    I have another model without a rudder (80" span, OS-91FX for power) and it carries a camera and it flies great....the line guide keeps the line tension correct.
