Corby CM-2

 

Two prototypes of a metal development of the Starlet designated at this stage as the CM-2 are being built in New Zealand. The aircraft is sufficiently close to Starlet to provide high confidence in performance and flight characteristics, but provides some features to builders who may prefer building in metal. Cockpit width, range, AUW, and aerobatic [6 Gs] have been increased, and recommended power is 60 to 90 HP. The CM-2 should be an impressive cross country machine, with excellent aerobatic capability.
Discussions with Jabaru on their higher powered engine suggest this combination with the CM-2 has great potential and they would be interested in cooperating on the project. The CM-2 is planned to be available in kit form and will have a high degree of parts commonality with the CJ-3 two seater which is underway but not yet ready for building.
