The Ercoupe was a very popular civilian aircraft that has been flown by thousands. The military even drafted this great flying plane into the service. Our plans were designed by noted giant scale modeler Jim Messer in the 1980's, so this design has met the test of time.

Our Ercoupe is a sport scale all wood model that makes a good first or second giant scale plane. Built of balsa, basswood and ply, the Ercoupe features a scale one piece wing, wood and stringered fuselage, and the distinctive twin rudders. Ailerons and rudder are independent of each other. The Ercoupe can be flown aerobatic if desired. The Ercoupe is a Great Flier!
