Piper Cub

The 1/4 scale Horizon Piper Cub is being used to flight test the electric motor, speed controller and battery pack that will be used in Big Willy. Once flight proven under traditional Radio Control methods, the Paparazzi suite will be integrated into the Cub and flight tests will be undertaken, with the aim of establishing the Cub in a pre programmed race course loiter circuit at a determined altitude, then deploying the Cub from its loiter and flying autonomously to pass over a transmitted GPS location at low altitude to simulate a supply drop as per the Outback Challenge requirements.
