MIKE ROACH’S SOPWITH AVIATION COMPANY

 

Dave's Cub first flight

My brother-in-law gave me this nearly-finished Goldberg Piper Cub ages ago and I have been working round to converting it to electric flight. Span 6ft, it had it's first flight in an undetailed state, with Trevor Hewson at the controls. AUW was 8.5 lbs, with a Plettenberg motor and 16 cells. I flew it a day later and have re-batteried it with 5 LiPolys, bringing the weight down by a lb, and moving the cg back to the designed position.
