In case anyone was wondering the antenna in the pic was from me having to use an older radio to setup. I left my xp8103 with a dsm2 module up at the cabin with my fuel burning ultra stick 40, which is also a blast to fly. Now I have 2.4 up and running in the fun cub.

Just as is in still air it is great doing figure eights at head height or lower without any apparent tendency to stall out even at near walking speed. The FC as designed is a really remarkable foamy.
Yea iam a builder of Ivans plans so its in my blood to build light ,my 100 inch sea plane is only 8 pounds with 3 batterys . I try to build light but sturdy on all my builds but its hard on a ARF and sometimes i over think stuff too. joe

I will print your photo and get it to Ivan next time I see him at the field. I am sure he will be interested. It looks good!

HURC recommended this with my order and motor, glad I got it. The 4 blade P-51 prop was made by using two wood props and some very precise rabbiting work. When you can't find what you need. I don't like grey props...Dave/zeezee

ZeeZee- wheree are your downthrust screws?? i see motor screws & motor mount screws...but no screws in the corners that allow you to add-remove left-right-up-down thrust adjustments.( those adj. screws were one of the best functions of the metal motor mount)...the original plastic one had them too !!

with out them...when you hit the throttle...yours must act like a rocket and go about straight up.

I've had a Funcub for 8 months in a box in the garage and looking to start building. After I figure out how to sneak it into the house past my wife. You know, that whole "oh no, not another plane" issue.
I use a HK 610 Orange RX with satellite and a DX8 TX, works like a champ. Don't know if the satellite makes a difference, I had it so I used it...

I have talked to Ivan via email many times and iam also in luke Z's thread about Ivans planes. Just tell him the biker from IL says hi and he might remember me. Ivan sent me pictures of himself riding a few didfferent motorcycles including his father riding one with his mother in a side car.lol At 80 + plus years old he is a great desighner and builder of electrict planes. I bought his 84 inch twin otter plans and his albitross plans and will start both soon. Thanks Gord i hope to meet Ivan in person one day when i retire soon. joe

The motor shaft I got from HURC worked perfect in my tacon big foot .10 motor..It was about 3/8" longer..but can cut that off with a dremal
..so if you bend 1 you can fix it for a couple $$...BUT.you WILL need a arbor press...if lucky a Heavy duty vice...but it was so tight..I doubt a vice will work..the press I got ( VERY reluctantly..As I didnt want anymore crap) at harbor freight for $49.00...

but My thinking was/is just 2 shafts replaced vs. replace motor.will pay for the press...but I doubt I will use it often...perhaps I can rent it to people that I fly with..if they replace a larger motor shaft.

So...for aprox. $55.00 I Repaired a $18.99 motor heheheh...please let me INVEST your $$$ too !!!! Lol

Buying a specialty tool can be frustrating, but I have a lot of tools that I used maybe 3 times in 20 years and that's when your glad you have it. The press you will use enough, and your buddies too. Dave/Z
