What kind of flexible glue can be used when mounting the servos so they can be readily removed later on for repair etc? I tried RTV but it just seems to remain slimey.

Also I was wondering what the square shaped cups on the rear of the motor mounts are for?

Thanks

A little dab of hot glue is all I've used on dozens of servo installs....

They have been around for a long time and I used to go into their retail store all the time.

At least at the store in Camarillo, CA the service is not that great. I have called numerous times over the years asking if they have a part in stock. They would always say 'yes we have it right here'. I would make the 45min drive to their store to find out they don't, and no one their would admit to even talking to me. Just happened for the last time a month ago. Never going back to their store again!

Never dealt with them on line, but it could just be the employees at that store. Seems like they always hire very unfriendly people there.

But that's just my experience. I'm sure they do well with most people since they have been around for a while.

Sorry for the delay in answering your question on the weight of my Fun Cub. I had to get my scales back from my son as I did not want to trust my memory. It is on floats right now and as such weighs 31.45 oz. without lipo. Memory told me it was 31.25 oz. on wheels. Seems like the floats should weigh more but this is what I weighed them at.

cobar,
try wrapping the servos with blendern tape then hot gluing in place. It makes it easier to remove glue from the servos when repairing or moving them to a "new" plane!

cobar,

I used to tape up the servos before gluing them in with hot glue. I tried blenderm, blue painters tape and the like. It didn't really make any difference removing or replacing the servos. I chalk it up as a urban legend.

Aileron differential

I have a few flights under my belt with the funcub. I was curious how people are setting up aileron differential, I have a dx6i.

Also I noticed the funcub could use a aileron > rudder mix. What have you guts found that works well

You can do aileron differential (50% less down that up aileron) mechanically with the servos installed in parallel and connected on a "Y." Or you can use two channels and program it in with your radio. Either way works and its a must for any high wing trainer plane. The mechanical method allows you to use fewer channels on your radio. I posted a video on aileron differential and flaps earlier in this thread.

Here it is again:

SARG5 reporting SAD TIMES
My Fun Cub went in last evening on the maden flight. I do not went wrong.
Now you understand that I am not the best flyer on the branch.
Take off went great, about a 10 foot roll out. Then things went very wrong. I just cound not get control of the plane. It was all over the sky. Kept getting futher and futher away. At one point it looked like I had control, then it went into the sun, Did not see it hit some 500 yards away.
Wings are OK, It went stright in. The nose is gone. Do not think it is even close to being repairable. Broke the motor mount into 3 pieces. Lipo was damaged. What a mess.
I will do some more testing this AM. But am thinking back. I would say that I had the ailn. reversed. Did not have a problem with alt.. And, I checked, rechecked and looked again at everything.
This is my first VERY BAD CRASH over times. Most have been able to fix up.
I will be checking today. Assume that if I purchase a new fusg., motor mount . I might as well order a new FC. Then use this one for future parts.
