Can you tell me the width of the cowl or firewall? Thanks.

Skypup,
I have this model with the ASP160 installed. Great sound and plenty of power. I had to add weight to the tail for proper balance.

I ordered the Green L-4 (2350mm) From Hobby King.
You can't beat the price for a huge plane already built
even if the quality works out to be below par.

My plan is to to build it electric powered.
I'll post some pics after I figure it all out and start
building.

I built the C<pro cub in 24hours with a buddy of mine and shoehorned an ASP 180 up the front for something to do, we started late Friday and it was ready to fly Sunday including modifying the firewall to fit the mufler behind the firewall and boxing everything in. a Great model and tows really well too!

I fly mine regularly. I've had it for a little over 3 years. It's powered by a CRRC 26cc and is a blast to fly.

What do you use on the landing gear for the o-rings?

I am putting 6 inch du-bro wheels on mine to give her that bush plane look. I have a saito .91 twin 4 stroke on mine but am thinking of going electric for ease of use.

I just use lots of rubber bands. Not that pretty and you have to keep replacing them.

Here are those 6 inch inflatables I put on this airplane.

The engine in this bird is a FA-100t, not the FA-90ts. I found this info on the engine itself.

A few more pics. Not quite yet done building this. May not even finish this but she does look good.
The engine is coming off and going on a smaller Piper Cub. I am going with a bigger twin 4 stroke or maybe a radial engine.
