I expect it has been done.
But I have said on other threads. Gyros are for girlies. Fly the model.

I test all my new gadgets with the Super Cub. I just received my 3 axis V2 orange gyro and will be mounting it in "guess what"? The Super Cub airframe just is so stable is it does seem ridiculous, but when getting used to new things like trimming gyros or FPV they are the perfect test platform. Takes one unknown out of the process.

Good plan. I test all new stuff on an old reliable T-28. for the same reason.
That still makes you girlie, The t-28 is more manly.

Nothing girlie about six Howitzers at your disposal. L-4 Grasshopper in my opinion is the most underrated plane of WWII. Read this and I think you will agree.http://www.americanheritage.com/cont...over?page=show

GREAT story! What adventures he had... My father was off the coast of Normandie on a troop ship on D-Day... he told me stories that gave me nightmares.

And yes, I "fly" a girlie plane - the Firebird Stratos

I'm looking to recommend this plane to a friend of mine. He is flying a micro Champ now and has tried out my son's Stratos. He wants something bigger and a "real" radio. Originally we were looking hard at the Apprentice, but cost is pretty high and he would have to buddy box to me for awhile. I started thinking maybe the Super Cub would be the way to go, the only downside is the lack of ailerions as he wants to move to a full four channel plane. I know adding them is very easy on the super cub but I wanted to make sure we could add them and keep the stock RX and speed control that comes with the BNF. For radio he wants a DX6i which is why the BNF.

I have the dx6i as well and cut ailerons into my cub. Same receiver, esc and motor. You will need a y-connector for the ailerons.

Home made water rudder


Hi Guys-
I soloed the SC back in August at my folks lake front place in South Carolina. I noted then that handling on the water was "challenging!" So I built a water rudder to attach to the tail wheel to see if that helps. Boy does it! The rudder was fabricated from piano wire. a piece of a 6" plastic ruler, and hot glue. I attached the rudder to the tail wheel with a couple of cable ties. The rudder is probably two times larger and heavier that it needs to be, so if I was to do it again, I would scale down. The SC handled it mod with grace.

The cub is the way to go in my opinion. A move I am sure will not be regretted.
The standard Rx in the BNF is 4ch configured for 3 ch flight so the switch to ailerons is easy as far as the electrics go.
The mechanics are well documented throughout this thread with various options available.
The Dx6i is a great choice of TX, or the new Orange Rx T-6 from Hobby King. This is a 6ch unit which is very similar in spec, lower price and has a backlit screen, if you can live with the colour.
Personally I have the Dx6i and given the choice would still buy it in preference to the Orange unit. It's a great Tx!
I would however recommend that if your friend is moving up from the Champ, that he flies the cub in standard trim for a bit before adding ailerons.

I canít recommend the HZ SC enough. It is a great first plane, or if moving up from micros, a great first larger plane. It is easy to fly, fix and mod.
I have two, one is still three channel for when I just want to putput around in the air, one with ailerons, a Park 480 and 500 LEDs on it for low light flying.
And don't forget, you can add the floats and fly it off of water, snow and wet grass, so it is a year round plane.
