Indoor Monocoupe anyone?

  1. I have been lurking, just not much going on with RC and me lately. I did pick up a new tool for the shop though :) Bridgeport clone on full CNC for metal working.

    Bipeguy03, Is there any chance of getting a PDF of those plans? Nothing like a Monocoupe to bring me out of hiding, lol.
  2. Unfortunately I don't have a way to do that but you can get a set from Sig, and the Kit itself is only $21.

  3. With the Monocoupe is sitting by and awaiting maiden, it's on to the next, started picking at the Mulligan tonight. I'm going to just continue it on this thread instead of starting a new one, mainly because it is going to be a rubber powered free flight and not sure where else it should go lol.

    Gonna try to get this one done quick, looks like I will get to do some Giant Scale stuff this winter as dad has decided he want's me to get started building his Luscombe after new year.

    If ya'll get tired of looking at small stuff feel free to tell me to shove off! lol :D

  9. It started life as a set of Wendell Hostetler plans, http://www.hostetlersplans.com/luscombe.html, but after getting and studying them for awhile I decided to redesign the Fuselage.
    I did away with the formers over box construction and go to a Keel/Former construction.
    I spent A LOT of hours with the bulkheads we salvaged out of one of our full scale 8C's to get the fuse shape as close as possible.
    I plan on using a Valley View 4o twin. Stay tuned there will be a build thread popping up on it soon!

    The 8C Deluxe was a special edition Luscombe with a fuel injected Continental C-75 and a shock mounted instrument panel, there are other differences but those are the most noticed. The fuel injected C-75 was very cumbersome and very very little originals still exist, most have been converted to 8A's with a C-65, Dad's how ever is original minus the fuel injection.

    Dad's 8C Deluxe first engine start after complete restoration. This is the plane that will be the subject of the build.
