Was a great day of flying the electric Cub and the gasser Cub yesterday. Couple of nice video stills of the JCSF field looking mighty fine.
After the crash of my first Lanyu Cub/RCGF 15cc bird due to elevator failure, Decided to build another one. Same engine torn down and rebuilt, and new airframe. Stock muffler installed for now, will fit new Aerovate 20cc pitts muffler eventually. Separate elevators, each with their own servo and pushrod, etc. Maiden flight was successful, but once again a wing strut vibrated loose and cracked off on landing despite my efforts to land in a sideslip to prevent this. Discovered that the wing struts are identical to the Great Planes Cub ARF struts. Need to modify with aluminum mounting points...
Electric Cub flyby pictures earlier this week on a windy hot day.
