Build a Pedal Plane, a pint-sized version of a Piper Cub that children will love to pedal around in. These plan sets include dimensioned drawings for all wood and metal parts making it easy to build, and customize. Step-by-step instructions, a detailed parts list, and a flight manual are all included.
The replica Piper Cub resembles, and can be painted like, many versions of world famous Piper models, including: J3 Cub, PA-11 Special, PA-12 Super Cruiser, Piper PA-14 Family Cruiser, PA-15/17 Vagabond, PA-16 Clipper, PA-18 Super Cub, PA-20 Pacer, O-59 and L-4, Grasshopper, L-21 Army and Air Force Liaison, NE-1 Navy Trainer, and RAF Flitfire.
Materials and parts used in the construction are commonly available at local lumber, hardware and home stores. All that is required are basic shop tools such as hand/power drill, screwdriver, sander, saw, and wrenches.
Overall dimensions: 59 inches long, 53 inch wingspan, 28 inches high. The seat is 10.5 inches wide, perfect for 2 to 8 year old pilots. The pedal plane is driven like a tricycle and steered by the control stick. Get the plans here.
