1/3 scale cub

Hi all,

Well, it looks like I'm the proud new owner of an older 1/3 scale cub. The
previous owner didn't know the make, so I posted a few pictures to see if anyone
might recognize it. The plane is huge - the wingspan measures 142" with a cord
of approx 21". The length is approx 88" from spinner nut to tail. We are
guessing it's probably a Balsa USA or a Trillium Balsa. Nor am I sure of the
make of engine.

It needs some TLC, and has it's been in storage for a couple years. Any info or
specs on make, CG, control throws, flying characteristics would be greatly
appreciated. BTW, I have been flying for about 10 years and have flown many
different types of planes, including smaller cubs, but never a giant scale plane
like this.

Thanks again,
Alan Harriman

Alan -

Looks like you tracked it down.

Got a bunch of 1:1 photos of Cubs and L-4/ If you're interested in
scale details e-mail me direct.

That sure is a purty Cub you have there! I hope you have a cowl for the
front! I think some N numbers on the wing would spruce it nicely! AND a 1/3
scale pilot. Only one thing purtier, a big 1/3 scale Fly Baby Biplane!

I do have the cowl, and I'll have to work on getting a scale pilot and numbers.
One of our club members has a 1/3 scale Fly Baby Biplane. (Balsa USA as I
recall) Great looking plane. One problem, he says he gets so nervous, he can
barely control the transmitter every time he tries to fly it <g> With any other
plane, he's an excellent flyer.

Take a look at this full size cub, does it get any better?
