Cobra Biplane

Short Kit

by Dan Santich

From Model Airplane News plans

Original Biplane built by Dave Forbes in 1975

Top Wing Span = 76"

Bottom Wing Span = 61"

Engine = Quadra 35 or larger

The fuse short kit has all the cut parts to build the fuse. It does not include stab/elevators or fin/rudder, so you can pick your choice of foam or wood wings.

Foam set has both wings, stab and fin included. All foam is cut so the control surfaces are cut out after they are sheeted. You will need to sand angles to match dihedral braces.

Foam Fin and Stab are cut to an airfoil shape, instead of the flat balsa that is sanded to shape on the plans.

The short kit with wood wings includes the fuse, the five 1/4" PLY shaped braces, and the wing tips, ribs, etc. No Stab or Fin

The wood wing only short kits include the 1/4" PLY shaped braces, 1 for the top wing, and the 4 for the bottom wing  

If you have questions on the different versions of the Cobra, since it is hard to explain them all, go to the contact page and give us a call, or send an email.
