Hi.

My struts are all home made. I saw a Pic, in rear cover of a Uk magazine, of the EFlite Super Cub, so If you don`t want to make them, I think, you can buy them.

Cheers.

Skylineflyer, Your motor mount looks great and so does your build. Did you laser cut the motor mount? What did you use to cut it so nice?

Thanks Scigs!

I just took very careful measurements, then used two things to cut it like that. First thing used was a band saw to get the main cuts done. I then used a scroll saw to get the excess material removed to lighten up the motor mount.

Looking to the Supercub 25 from Eflite, I think that you can adapt this to your Cub if you can buy them as a replacement.
Jose, I again wanted to thank you for your technique. I hope this will look good also.

Figured it out

Watcha think?


Quick release from the fuselage, and they will fold flat on the wing!

Really cool struts. They look great. I would reinforce the strut blocks in the wing a lot more though. It would be a pain for one of them to pop loose after the wing was covered. Where did you find that C channel? Again, Super job your doing, and it will fly like a dream. 5.5 lbs is a great weight so far.
