I have a H9 cub (80"ws) with a magnum .91. It is a good engine, but easy on the throttle. It needs about an 1/8-1/4 for a nice scale takeoff, other wise it ripps off the ground.

A *very* valid point. And, you just made me eat my words. I retired a well-worn T-2A pattern ship that I built in the '80s. I replaced it with a lightly flown Patricia I found at my LHS, so I have an "ARF"! Never thought of it that way.

The OP's Cub has seen at least one mod (the chunk of unfinished ply in the painted cabin). Rebuild? Hard to say. The lightning holes at the bottom of the fuse leads me to think ARF, but who knows?

or the wing would have been built in one piece!not joined in the center, by looking at the covering, it shure looks like an arf to me!
It reminds me of the old World Models ARF. If it is, a .91 4 stroke is enough to fly it.

I think you nailed it Tom. Lots of similarities to BeefKoptor's Cub.

This link is to an article on electrifying a standard wingspan Cub, but lots of pics for comparison to BeefKoptor's Cub:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/magazine/a...article_id=758

One big difference is that the World Models Cub's wings uses a two-piece plug-in wing with an aluminum tube. The wing panels plug-in to the fuselage cabin. No reason this wing could be modified into a permanently joined one piece. That would explain BeefKoptor's pic of the wing center section that shows the split in the joiner.

If BeefKoptor's Cub a World Models, this Cub has seen some rebuilds.

Alright Tom!

Thanks guys. Love rc groups. At first I wasn't thinking ARF. But now I'm thinking ARF. The wings got a foam core. The landing gear looks different on the world models one but I know I can make any landing gear work really. The rudder is also slightly different. As mentioned tho, could have some rebuilds. Here's a few more pics.

I was referring to a 20 year old ARF. Maybe it was an Indy Cub. I'm pretty sure that Indy RC was the dealer that sold them.

The version that I remember had a one piece wing.

I'm 99% sure that this is the model that I remember. The name of the manufacturer/dealer, is open for debate.

it looks to be a higher end arf! I had a snap 21 back in the mid 80's that was an arf, with close to the same construction, as I got it secound also, I can't for the life of me remember the name either!

back then arf's cost 3 ta 4 times as much as it took to build one!
