Default 40 size cub

I was wondering if anyone had any plans for a 40 size cub that they might be willing to share. I downloaded one set of plans, but many of the dimensional marking are missing, and I cannot quite tell for sure what size it is supposed to be, the wingspan is about 70 inches.

The plans I have came from The file is

Any help would be appreciated.

Default RE: 40 size cub


Just pick up whatever dimensions you need from the CAD program you're using. The dxf file is already set up to "full scale" for the model, or about 1/6 scale of the full-size Cub.

If you'd just as soon build from a kit, I heartily recommend SIG's 1/6 scale Cub, although I did laminate the tips (like the plans file you mentioned) instead of using their die-crunched tip outlines. I fly mine with wheels or floats with a OS FS26 4-stroke.
