Is there a good reason not to keep using the stock servos? I still run the stock steering servos in some of my surface RC vehicles even though most guys ditch them... mostly to go to metal gears for durability, but those things take a beating in that type of vehicle.
No, the stockers will work fine. Sometimes they outlast the plane.

Hi Guys, I was just trimming in the tail feathers and noticed the tail wheel has a pretty good twist to it. Is it suppose to look like this. I was thinking maybe for torque or vertical stab corrections. I didn't want to bend anything until I checked with you Guys. Thanks

Mike.

I just bent mine to make the plane go in a straight line on the ground.

I had my Super cub out today in 20 mph winds. With ailerons and the brushless mod,Eflite 480 with custom motor mount, it did an amazing job in such high winds. I have been flying micros lately and forgot just how stable the Supercub is and how well it handles the wind.

Tons of thrust but no speed demon. Probably pull a stump out of the ground. You will never stall the plane as you could stop in mid air and go straight up. I think I have a lame video of it going verticle. Lemme find it.

OK, here is the lame video. I made this to break a good friends stones. Dale,(NavalWarfare) use to post here quite a bit and it was my duty to try to make his life as miserable as possible. My video guy was an idiot but it does show the SC's power with a 11x4.7SF prop.
Have a laugh at this...

Great! Thank you, It seemed like the logical thing to do but, I wanted to check in with the Pros

I'll remember to do a Left/right adjustment if there's a problem as the others pointed out.

Sorry North, I believe you asked me that before and I never got back. It's called the Ernst Ultra Stand # 157. HH has it for 14 bucks. I got mine at my LHS for just under 10 bucks. Nice stand. The ends pop off so I can put a small bungee around the 3 pieces and take it to the park. It is light weight and best of all the Super Cub fits perfectly in it. Unfortunately, it's not adjustable in any way. For anyone owning a SC, yes, I would recommend this:

Foam strips come with it to pad the cradle (1/4" thick X 1" wide).

Mike.
