Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hello! I was given the following plan by a friend. It seems unique to me. My attempts to locate historic references online have borne no fruit. Plans attached. Perhaps your fan-group would be interested?

(Description box copy by Google Translate): Humming Cub. The Humming Cub was designed to take advantage of the characteristics of the biplane. Today, engines with horsepower have been developed, and because it is practical to fly faster, the efficiency of the engine is improved. Good monoplane models have become the mainstream of airplanes, but when biplanes were thought up and released before that, there were few Horses. Because of the characteristics of the biplane, which is said to have good maneuverability with a small turn, the biplane type is the same as that of an airplane. It was mainstream. The Humming Cub can take advantage of the characteristics of this biplane and enjoy it privately in a familiar square.

Designed as a noiseless slow-flight radio-controlled airplane. Comical style flying above. It is the style that I pursued performance rationally and was born naturally. Ultra-noiseless slow-flight performance. Even though it is a radio-controlled airplane with an engine “Despite, it flies at 20 ~ 30k per hour, and when it is 20m away the flight performance that does not hear the engine sound at the beginning (wearing a sub muffler) is the "bird series” of Musashino Model Airplane Research Institute. Among the 5 models of the "Bird series", the low-speed flight performance is in the top, so it is super I think that it is good to say the noise-free slow flight performance. Safe flight performance that can fly leisurely even by self-study in a familiar square.

You can drive (taxiing) on the table while controlling speed at a width of 10 to 50 meters wide. You can take off and land just by throttle operation (speed control) of the engine, in combination with taxiing. If you do, you will be able to easily get used to the handling of radio-controlled airplanes. If there is a width of 80m lift, you can practice normal flight maneuvers such as descent and direction conversion. Good stability even if you release your hand from the maneuver when you take off. Since there is autonomy stability enough to fly quickly, the success rate of a single first flight is 100% even for the first person.

Please refer to the manual attached to the kit for details. In addition, those who want to get knowledge of Zum radio controlled airplane more slowly, please read “Introduction to Light radio controlled Aircraft” by Shigeo Tatebayashi, director of Musashino Model Aircraft Research Institute.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Doh. My mistake. Have set the tag on this one to RC now, thanks to Allen Wale. It is of course not a FF model.

I’ve finished and flown my sample. Power is a 480 outrunner on 3S 1300mAh Lipo. Feel free to post [main pic, 005-008].

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
