Default New Hangar 9 1/4 Scale P 18 Super Cub

Hasn't been any release of new giant scale from Hangar 9 since last winter/early spring. But, on the Hangar 9 website if you click new items, there is a Super Cub listed, with no details but a late October delivery date? This would be a nice unit and I happen to have a Zenoah 26 laying around that I am looking for a home for. The regular J-3 cub is listed at 106 inch wingspan and 20-26cc so I assume it would be very close to that size.

Anybody else know any information on this unit?

And it looks like it's set up for electric. Think I'll bite on this one. But don't count on October delivery....

Dave, a quick look at the manual show's many up-graded features over the 1/4 Cub Thank You for listening & making changes in the areas where some were having problems.

So many have drool'ed over the thought of a 1/4 Super Cub ARF, & you guy's really steped up to the plate on this one, it's at the TOP of my list.

Guys,

The models are on the water now and we are expecting to begin shipping the first week of November.

We have added many details and modifications to this model from the 1/4 Scale J3 Cub we introduced in the summer of '07 so place you orders today and enjoy!

Here is a link to the video

Bill,
I noticed that the G-26 is out of stock as are most of the Zenoah engines. What’s going on with these? What other gas engine do you recommend for the Super Cub?

I think they are changing over to the new series of engines Zenoah engines they have advertized recently as ZP and they are not stocking the older ones anymore. Horizon is bad for out of stock, I am waiting on Pulse 125 part for almost a year now. They claim to have fixed the issue, but you still see lots of items out of stock. Almost never is Tower out of stock on anything. The cub does look great, though. I like the collapsible wing struts I have the Tcraft and that is one thing I dont' like the wing struts that don't fold flat on that model. Also, to include flaps and some other nice features for $649 price seems pretty good to me for the size of this model and the options and features. I think they have the Tcraft a little overpriced at $625 for a smaller model.

DLE 30 or DLE 35 would be easy, and fit fine but a lot of motor, PTE 36, EVO 26GX any of these. I would not use the Zenoah 20, its a little under powered for 16-18 pound model.

Not true. The good 'ol magneto versions will live on.

Also, the G26A (and a couple other Zenoahs) should be available again within about a week.

Any opinions if the FG-21 would be a good candidate for this plane? I know Hangar 9 recommends the FG-30, but this plane is more of a floater.

Hi,

And then we have OS GT33 gas engine that should work on this plane als, maybe even the smaller OS GT22 will be enough:
http://www.osengines.com/engines/airplane.html

As a side note if anyone want huge tundra tires for a 1/4 scale CUBYou can order now from Topmodel CZsince they have in them stock now.
I ordered some days ago and it is on it's way to me now. They are 200 millimeter / 7.9 inch diameter. Sold in pair. Cost is 65 Euro = US $85.

http://www.topmodelcz.cz/index.php?P...detail&id=6353

Dubro 6 inch "Big wheels" hub(4 mm / 5/32 axel diameter) can be used in this Topmodel CZ tundra tires if needed:

http://shop.dubro.com/products/produ...87.0.0.0?pp=12&

Maybe the 1/4 scale Dubro CUB wheel hub (it has also 4 mm /5/32 axel diameter)fit also on the Topmodel CZ rubber wheel, I do not know:

I put the Dubro 1/3 scale cub wheels on my Hangar 9 1/4 scale J3 cub.........had to make some longer axles is all. They have worked great. Looks super.........

I will do the same on this PA-18........paint the yellow cub cap white and it will look great.

This plane is bound to be a hit with most. Compare the price with the cost of the Dave Patrick cub when it was available and the cost of the Aeroworks cub at nearly $1000 shipped to your door. I think Horizon will sell a bunch of these............free shipping doesn't hurt. There is a $22 oversize fee that is not waived. I had a 15% coupon to use for this so, I have mine on order.

They advertise it as being ready for float installation.

If its as nice as the smaller Super Cub it will make a great kit

The Model has hard points built into the fuselage to accept our 1/4 scale floats.

I would consider the overall height of the engine cylinder head when determining the engine you want to install into this model as the engine will be mounted inverted. The Blue circular cap(which is the oil filter) located on the bottom of the Super cub cowl will need to be ground away with a tall engine.

The new Zenoah ZP 26 is a good fit for this model, but keep in mind that you will need move the RX battery as far forward as possible and you still might need to add lead to the nose for proper C/G as this engine is much lighter than the original Magneto Zenoah 26 that we show in the instruction manual.

I would really like a twin cylinder gas engine that will fit under the beautiful cowling without having to carve it up and hang a big ugly cylinder out the bottom. Also with enough power to fly on floats!! Any ideas???

If you watch the video on the Horizon web site, the demo plane is powered with a Saito 182 twin I believe. No cowl cutting and it looks to have good performance..................that motor should be what you want................go to the Horizon web site and click on the Super Cub. The video is pretty good.

Thanks, I figured it would.

While I think there may be a better color choice that could have been made, this looks really nice and I may consider getting one to put on floats for club float flys.

GASOLINE engine that will fit in the cowl with no cutting. If that 182 glow twin is marginal on glow power it will have even less power on gas! I have 1/4 floats for the J3 that i want to use on this plane.

I have the older H-9 Cub of the same size. I used a CRRC 26cc engine and an 18x6 prop. Vey scale in flight both with wheels and floats. The engine is NOT impressive, and a DLE 20 would out perform it. I think a DLE 30 would be a great engine for the Super Cub.

Bill, Are the black N numbers a vinyl type material that can be removed like on the H9 giant Cessna 182?
Thanks!
