circanie11

 

An 87% scale replica first displayed at Oshkosh in 1984 after a hurried 10 hours of serious test flying before being loaded on a trailer for the trip. Construction drawings includes more than 100 pages of dimensional drawings, assembly sketches and construction notes, in 9 x 12 format The Baby Nieuport is an outwardly accurate reproduction with handling characteristics much like the original World War I fighter. Special construc-tion techniques make the best use of aluminum tube and sheet for a light, robust structure, capable of meeting ultralight or amateur-built criteria, powered by either a Rotax 447 or 50 hp Rotax 503. With more than 100 pages of dimensional drawings, assembly sketches and construction notes, Circa claim that the aircraft, built from alloy tube and sheet, can be put together in around 500 hours. Tubes 6061-T6 Gussets / fittings 2024 - T3.
