Here is some info on my second Super Cub. I this one set up with my dx-7 and ar6200 receiver. I am using the stock motor and gearbox with an electrifly c-35 esc. I installed the servos that came with my dx-7 microlite and plan on adding ailerons at some point in the future. As it is right now, this plane will fly inverted for any amount of time and will easily carry 7 ounces of extra weight if needed. The decals that I used were cut out of a strip of monokote trim stickers. This plane is a blast to fly. I should also mention that I use a GWS 10x6 DD prop on this plane and I am able to run it full throttle all day without the motor or esc getting anywhere past warm to the touch....Continue Reading

These are a few pics of the flaps that I have installed on my T-28 Trojan. I did my best to make it look like the plane came with the flaps on them... and all I used was a super sharp knife, ruler, sand paper, and hinge tape.

Throws:
1st switch position = 0in
2nd switch position = 0.5in
3rd switch postion = 1in
I also included pics of the settings in my dx-7 for the flaps on this plane....Continue Reading
