Wingspan 64" , Length 56-3/4"

.61 2C engine

Plane is SPA Legal

The Curare is one of the most sought after planes in 1970's. This is you chance to fly a legend.

The Curare can be purchased with either a foam wing and stab, or with built up wing and stab. A few changes have been made to make wood acquisition easier.  The tri stock along the turtle deck is 'square', i.e.: same on both sides, unlike the plans.  The beam engine mount has been replaced with a standard firewall/engine mount to fit modern engines easier.  Center rib on wood wing is full rib, not as shown on plans tor simplify build. Every other rib on the built up wing has building tabs and all ribs have 1/4" wing jig holes. The fuse has been changed from the butt joint by the tank area, to a 'z-curve joint' above the wing. This is for strength purposes, since the engine beams are no longer there.

Included parts list can be downloaded here. Wing fillets are included, and wing & stab tips are included.

Canopy is INCLUDED on all Curare kits!!

Tapered stock for Flaps is included, along with Elevators, so you can build with or without flaps.

The wood needed to complete the plane is included in the complete kit, in case you don't wish to purchase it separately. A list of included wood is below. Plans show retracts, but no landing gear parts are included so you can do either fixed gear or retracts, your choice. No hardware is included.
