Try experimenting by setting the ailerons up as flaperons using your tx first.
Then if you really must have flaps after that, may I suggest using drop down flap hinges. You'll getter a greater surface area dropping, and they look cool as heck.
i don't agree that they are a waste of time. they are either too small to be effective or you need more weight in the plane to "feel" the difference. for hinges, try control horns. bases attach to wing and flap. link together at the hole furthest out from the base. kind of makes it a slatted flap. there do seem to be flap hinges out there, though i haven't spent much time searching. this thread has a good picture of one and also designs to make your own.

check out the first picture in post #3. i suspect the two control horns would work about the same...

This thread will have more "parts" than the plane itself

Boy! Ain't that the truth.

Thanks ArsonDave, for keeping the saga going... and for keeping the index on the first page - a great big help for everyone!

Hi Ron (and others),

After getting some feedback from some of the original users, it appeared that it would be easiest for me to do it since I could just copy and paste the code into the first couple of posts. And, coordinating openings and closings of the threads would have been a bit more difficult if there were multiple parties involved.

As an aside, I had some nice PM exchanges with Mike K about the thread, and it turns out the site admins were much more patient with the size of the thread then any of us would have suspected. I asked, for the future, if there is a "guideline" as to when a thread starts to negatively impact site performance. Mike said the thread will begin to show on the performance radar at about 1000 pages, and it definitely shows on the performance report at about 1200 pages.

So, based upon his answer, I can see this part running about 1000 pages and then moving onto the next part. Just thought I would put this out there for next time. We certainly don't want to cause performance problems for the site. Regards.

Dave

I have just replaced the rear wheel on my HZ Super Cub. (I'll post a video in a few days). The tiny foam wheel was a pain to steer the plane. The slightly bigger rubber wheel from DuBro should make a difference. It fits perfectly. I'll know when the weather helps me.

That looks like a lot of flap about flaps.

Clipped Wing Kit

Anyone else see this from Horizon Hobby in their inbox this morning?

"We have several projects we are working on, including a high powered clipped wing HobbyZone Super Cub mod we are planning on offering as a kit. The prototype is a riot to fly. We'll have more news soon."

Is this new news, or am I just behind the times?
