I can fly my J-3 very well with rudder and elevator, but when I started to use the aileron, its start to nose up and then dive. Anyone know what could be the cause of this?

Nosing up and then diving (over and over) is called "porpoising"...like a porpoise/dolphin does.

Most common cause is a CG that is too far back.

Cubs have adverse yaw with ailerons. Right Aileron up makes it roll right, but the drag from the left aileron down yaws it left.

The pitch up could be the down aileron wing generating more lift, but then the wing stalls causing the nose to drop.

Hi UNGN, yes it react just like you described, but on this case how can I counter it? more speed? this J-3 can fly and claim with half throttle but quickly stall with aileron

For my cub, more nose weight and setting the ailerons so that Neutral was slightly Trailing edge up helped. I still needed to learn how to mix in the right amount of rudder and aileron to get it to turn smoothly.

Once you get it, it feels natural and the plane flies fine... but not fly the plane for a while and its very hard to to just pick up the TX and fly it... which is why I fly my champ instead. That plane flies itself.

can you set up your aileron to just deflect upwards? It would require a slight modification of the bell crank, a couple tensioning springs and a couple stops for the aileron arms so they can't travel to down deflection. That way you just have the up deflection on one wing or the other to bank right or left, but you don't have the down deflection on the opposing wing that seems to be causing the nose in/stalling situation.

The Cub's wing is trying to generate too much lift, anyway and stalls easily. Flattening the wing out makes it balloon less under power and the inside wing stalls less in turns.

The plane may not slow down as much when traveling straight ahead, into the wind, but you can turn downwind without a wing dropping and the plane falling out of the sky.

Tethered RC (tRC) Planes for AR6400


These micro planes fly very aerobatically on 10 foot lines thethered to the top of a 12 foot pole. Planes are typically 10 inch span and weigh about 1 ounce:

I guess I don't understand. They are RC controlled with ar6400 Rx's so why use a pole ??? Doesn't a pole sort of defeat the purpose of having them Remote Controlled.
