Building a Brushed Super Cub with Lipo
 
9 Attachment(s)
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.

Ty,

One of the things I admire most is what's called 'economy of line'. I guess the prime example of it is Picasso's ability to convey the most powerful sentiments.. with the fewest lines possible.

That's why I've always held that 'less is more'.

Are you saying that because you know that I am an art teacher :-)
I agree with you. Simplicity can really make a difference! Now what in the world are you doing up so early? I woke up because one of my kids was awake...

That cracks me up! I had no idea, until I just read your profile.

Sort of like me preaching to the choir, huh? :)

Ty, wonderful job. Can you link me to the stuff you used to make your trim scheme? I need some of that for my slow stick and I think I might re-do my SCs trim scheme.
