Light Miniature Aircraft LM-J3-W
LMA's Piper Cub LM-J3-W is an exact, full scale, two place tandem replica in wood. It may be built to conform to the New LSA Rules, with a Rotax 65 hp 582 Engine or use up to and including a 65 HP Continental or equivalent. The Kit is a materials kit, but most of the metal parts are cut from Aluminum Extrusions, making fabrication very fast and inexpensive, with no welding (except for the Engine Mount).
All of the Light Miniature Aircraft Manuals, are approximately 200 pages. Each manual has step-by-step instructions, for each section of the plane, as well as figures, drawings and full size templates to guide the builder through the building process. Each manual also comes with a complete set of full size plans for the fuselage and tail feathers as well as full size templates for the wing ribs, landing gear and items such as the wind shield.
The wooden planes are constructed in the same manner.
Plans and manuals are still available for our metal planes, however, due to rising aluminum costs and availability problems, Light Miniature Aircraft no longer supply kits for the air frames of the metal planes. Some partial kits, for items like the controls or landing gear were still available.
