Wag-Aero Wag-a-Bond / Traveller

wag-a-bond


The Wag-A-Bond can be built in either of two versions — the Classic or the Traveler. The Classic is a replica of the Piper PA-15 Vagabond, and the Traveler is a modified and up-dated version of the Vagabond with port and starboard doors, overhead skylight window, extended sleeping deck, extended bag-gage area and provisions for engines up to 115 hp. The wings are strut-braced, high-wing, all-wood structures covered with fabric. The spar and ribs are spruce with mahogany plywood gussets. The ailerons are fabric-covered aluminum. The fuselage is welded steel tube.
The Wag-A-Bond Builder's kits includes drawings for both options, with many parts preformed and many assemblies pre-welded. The Builder kits feature predrilled spars and precut nose ribs in the wing kit. This same detailing follows through to all of the other kits with items such as the tail group, including elevators, and stabilizers and the rudder and vertical fin finish welded. The landing gear is available completely finished, ready to attach to the fuselage structure.
When Dick Wagner developed his Cuby, Wagabond and 2+2 kits, all were fitted with J-3 rudders. Reason: Dick had purchased all the J-3 inventory left at Piper's old Ponca City, OK plant, which included a barn full of J-3 elevators, stabilizers, gear legs and rudders.
