Oh, please....You'll shoot your eye out kid.

Please re-post the brick though....seriously.There's enough new peeps around who havent seen it, and who will be temporarily impressed with your skills.
That is, until you post an actual airplane flight vid, then its curtains.

and TSOT.. I'll bet if R. E. Lee had had just one L-39/Cub in his arsenal, we'd a won that darn war.

Great job on the video. I would have done the same thing. I laughed so much I almost spilled beer on the keyboard.

So, the score now is : Me 1427, You: 1

My Brick. Everyone, take your hats off.

Just maidened my SuperCub!!

Following several people's ideas here on the forum, and especially one Necubflyer, I built my Supercub from scratch.

Airframe all stock, with some minor mods made on battery case, wing saddle and landing gear. Wheels were tundra wheels from DuBro. I liked the ones with the tread! Tailwheel is a 1" wheel from another plane.

Stock wing, no attempt to reduce dihedral, but covered (and all the airframe) with Ekonokote, Cub Yellow of course. Decals were made by me with decal paper.

Ailerons per Necubflyer. THE BEST instructions on how to install and test them for a novice like me.

All servos are HXT900, I DID use a UBEC and suggest all who use these high power demand servos to do the same. Shutdowns really ruin your day!

Emax 35 Amp ESC with 3 Amp switchmode BEC (I disconnected it!)
1 Motor Mount for HZ Super Cub
1 3530-11 Outrunner Brushless Electric Motor
TURNIGY 3A UBEC w/ Noise Reduction Output: 5v/3A or 6v/3A (Selectable via jumper)
ZIPPY Flightmax 2200mAh 3S1P 30C flight battery

10x7 prop with spinner (silver one pictured, I have since picked up a cool black one, looks real good but I don't know how to mount it!)

I was very pleased with it when I maidened it yesterday. It was a bit too windy in the AM, and I aborted the initial flights. Later on in the day, I went up to the flight site and there was acceptable wind levels.

Temps were in the upper 20's, so I knew my hands weren't going to take more than a few minutes. My goals were to:

1) ROG
2) trim for flight
3) get used to ailerons
4) get back in one piece

Before takeoff, I tried some easy taxis and struggled a bit. I am still not used to steering with the (L) thumb.

Got to where I felt it was good, finished my pre-flight (again) and put her into the wind.

Throttled up, she really leapt into the air, tail lifting first, a bit faster than I expected, but balance looked good. Kept it nice and straight until I got some 'tude, then took the throttle waaay back. It was great! It really looked good in the air, just like her big sisters!

Some light trim for ailerons, then just flew around for about 12 minutes. It had PLENTY of power if desired, it really climbed FAST, but I enjoyed just doing some gentle turns in the circuit.

After 10 minutes the countdown timer went, so I got her to take one more lap (upwind) and brought her in. I was on the grass, so I just wanted to get it in safe. Got her down on the grass, and I shut her down.

All and all a very successful flight. I am looking forward to many more. Thanks again everyone.

thats a big prop, the biggest I use is 11x7.
I think the MAS props draw less amps than the APCs (also they're less prone to breaking)any conformation on the amperage diff??

What are you using for a prop? I have an 35-36 1400 that I bought by mistake and I was going to use it on another plane. I think that could be a fun motor in the SC.

I know the green rings are called toroids, but what is their function with the servo wires?

Torroids

The torroids are on the UBEC and the ESC BEC (disconnected on my version) to minimize radio interference with the receiver. They are NOT on the servos.

I've experimented with a number of motors and the "SK" 35-36 1400 was the best "all around" motor for my Cub.
It can haul butt, yet is light enough to allow the Cub to slow to a crawl without stalling.
It's also horse enough to where I can strap a "Flip" video cam to it's belly for aerial shots.
Buying it is one mistake you'll be glad you made.

The max "safe" size to use on an SK 35-36 1400
10x7 E on 3s
10x4 E on 4s. any bigger and it's blue smoke city. Don't ask me how I know
Use an 8X8 E on 4S for supersonic speeds.
HTH and good luck.

Ive heard them referrred to as Chokes, and am told they are to cut down on RF interference. I'm also told it was used more often in FM applications.
They often get in my way, so I cut them off, and have yet to experience any adverse effects for doing so.Since all this is hearsay to me, perhaps someone who knows more about this, (I don't)
like No Fly Zone Chuck, will jump in and clarify.
