I found a built Herr 1/2A J-3 Cub at a garage sale for $5! It was set up for glow but apparently never saw any nitro. The previous owner did an excellent job building it. He and also set it up for ailerons. I was able to purchase decals and a cowling from Sig.

I cut a hatch in the front bottom of the fuselage to make battery access easy. Power is a Value Hobby E400 1200Kv motor swinging a GWS DD9x7.5. I plan on switching to a 8" with less pitch.

It's way over powered but fly's fantastic with some throttle control to keep it scale looking.

I need help with the wing supports. It did not come with any and I'm not sure how to build them. Anyone have closeup pictures or possibly want to sell a set?

For me, this plane is a nice alternative from 3D flying. I love it!
