The Curtiss Robin introduced in 1928 was a high-wing monoplane with a 90 hp (67 kW) V8 OX-5 8-cylinder engine built by Curtiss-Robertson. It was later fitted with the more powerful Challenger engine which developed between 170 and 185 hp (127 and 138 kW). NOTE: Model B (90 hp-67 kW Curtiss OX-5 engine) Model C-1 (185 hp-138 kW Curtiss Challenger engine) and Model J-1 The J-1 version was flown by Douglas Corrigan as well as The Flying Keys.
