    COMMENTS:
    The Sherwood KUB has been designed to meet the UK SSDR category and can be built to sub-115kg (253lbs) empty weight. Whilst it is light in weight the fuselage is constructed from CNC machined and jig welded 4130 tube and the wings from aircraft grade aluminium and plywood. Engines from 28 to 50hp are ideal and additional fuel capacity are available as an option.
