The Tuff Cub is a 3 channel, EPP foam beginner - trainer plane. The wing is a KFm2 airfoil with dihedral tips.
The Tuff Cub came about after having a need for a indoor trainer plane.
It had to be easy to fly and very durable! What I didn't expect was how
well it would fly outside, even in a 10 to 15 mph wind.

Laser Cut foam parts.
