Curtiss Robin 2

Curtiss Robin 2

The Curtiss Robin, introduced in 1928, was a high-wing monoplane had a wooden wing and steel tubing fuselage. The cabin accommodated three persons; two passengers were seated side-by-side behind the pilot. Early Robins were distinguished by large flat fairings over the parallel diagonal wing bracing struts; the fairings were abandoned on later versions, having been found to be ineffective in creating lift. The original landing gear had bungee rubber cord shock absorbers, later replaced by an oleo-pneumatic system. An historical note: this is the airplane flown in 1938 by Douglas Corrigan (nicknamed "Wrongway").

This plan designed by H.G. Bowers and produced by Flyline Models 1974 is designed to be built as a radio control, free flight or static display. The wingspan is 41 inches, the model is to be powered by a Cox.049 Golden Bee and a weight of 10 to 16 ounces. The fuselage sides are built on the plans from balsa sticks. The wings are standard (conventional) model building techniques. The radio system shown on the plans is an early "pulse" radio system which could reasonably be replaced by one of the smaller radio systems on the market today.
