    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Dan, it's good to see that I'm not the only slow poke around. I'm just finishing up on my Cub and expect to have it out for photo's this coming weekend. I stripped it down to the bones and did a Koverall and dope finish. Put in nav, strobe, and landing lights. I'm running an OS 1.60 twin FS which I have been breaking in on my big Rascal 110. Floats later this summer when Hangar 9 gets them out.
    I hope your maiden flight goes perfect for you. Please let us all know how it goes and don't forget the pics.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Hi guys, anyone on here have any extra or leftover Rear Struts for the Cub? My kit came with two right rear struts and I'm in need of a Left Rear strut. I can use mine, but the airfoil is backwards and makes it look funkey. Hopefully when Cermark gets them going again, I will be able to get one then.
    I already tried to get the jury strut attatchment off and turned over, but it seemed like it had been pinned and spot welded on there. I didn't want to screw up the only strut I have, so decided to leave it alone.

    Thanks, Mark

    Looking good, Dan. Should fly like a dream.

    Again, good luck on the maiden. Wish I could be there to witness.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Thought you DP Cub lovers might be interested in this. I emailed Cermark about the Dave Patrick Cub and got the following answer:

    We will not be getting DPM for about 3-6 months. I will notify you when they are available. I will put your name and email on the waiting list. Thank you for your interest and we will be keeping in contact.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Wow Bud, that is hard to believe [] as I thought you were a model builder for life. If you have health problems, that is another thing that is understandable.
    If you actually do sell your Cub and want to separate the floats and rigging, pm me with your price and details as I might be interested.

    Thanks

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Hey Mark,
    I'll keep the float thing in mind, the fittings were built especially for the DPM cub. I see I have competition since H9 came out with 1/4 scale floats that will be a whole lot cheaper than I could sell mine for. I may not be able to sell the plane as I won't ship. Local p/u only. I am a lifetime modeler and health is part of my quitting but I'm going back to my roots of hanging around the Chesapeake bay and building scale boat models of the old oyster boats and crabbing boats I grew up with. Just had sudden burnout and tired of lugging everything heavy to the field at my age. A trip to the Maritime museum at St Michaels Md brought back some memories that makes the modeling switchover easy. I apoligize for a boat picture in a cub forum but this is what it's all about for me.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Bud, I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and have painted many a name on the work boats you speak fondly of. My father was also a sign / truck / boat painter who mastered the art of hand lettering and worked the last 20 years of his life as a self employed painter who lettered just about all the boats from Crifield, MD to Saxis Island, VA all the way down to Cape Charles, VA. He passed on in 1998 but I have carried on his business to this day...only I use computer vinyl for lettering and gave up the brush....it's the modern way now. I admire those that can carve the small work boats and make them look scale.
    Check out this link.... http://www.makuchalsigns.com/Boats1.htm .....and you'll see some of my work on Delmarva.

    As far as the Dave Patrick comeback....I think this is great news...and I hope Cermark handles the orders better this time around. I may even place an order when I see that people are starting to get them and say they're as good as ever!

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    FINALLY, FINALLY. FINALLY my Super Cub has flown. Today 6/24 was its' maiden flight. I didn't get any photos of it today at the field but I am one happy Cub owner!! The plane flies great, very little trim adjustments were needed and it looks fantastic in the air.

    I have a few things to adjust. The control throws were set as recommended by the instruction book and low rates are a bit sluggish. I need to mix some rudder with ailerons and the engine needs to break in a bit more. I'm currently running a 16 x 8 APC prop and will try one in the 15" range next time out. And lastly, The tail wheel axle shaft lost one of the little c-clips which I will replace with either a speed nut or replace the axle with a machine screw and nylock nut.

    I can see now why this plane is so well liked. Super smooth in the air, gets a lot of positive comments from other fliers, and it is well built. I now look forward to having a blast flyng this plane frequently and look forward to the time when the clipped wing version is available through Cermark.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    I am happy to report that my Cub still looks like these pics after it's maiden flight this past weekend. I balanced level instead of the customary nose down attitude and my elevator is kind of touchy. I set it up according to the book and found myself comfortable with the high rates for normal flying. I haven't yet set up the exponential, but think I might need it on the elevator if changing the CG dosen't help. It might be a tad tail heavy.
    I'm running an OS 160 twin fs for power with a Keleo exhaust system. I ripped all that Ultracote off, added a lighting system from Electro Dynamics (EDR117) and then recovered with Sig Koverall. The paint is Randolph butyrate dope applied like the full size counterpart. It took me a while to do, but now I have a drum tight, no wrinkle finish that is easy to maintain.
    Overall, I am very happy with the results of my labor.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Here are a few more pics.
    I made the landing lights by using Maglite reflectors. I had to reinforce behind my cutout in the wing leading edge with plywood. Then the old pop bottle plastic lens after the finish.
    I also replaced the tail wheel assembly with a medium Sig unit like comes with the Rascal 110. I couldn't get the stock one to work right as it is too short and tight.
    I'm running the Fromeco lithium ion 2600 battery pack regulated and a Badger switch. You can fly all day on a charge.

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Thanks, Outacontrol41. I looked long and hard for a paint scheme on the Airliners.net site and couldn't find anything that turned my crank. I wanted something different than the usual, so I did my own thing. I do have a mixture of ideas from there. I was trying to not have to repaint all the yellow hardware. As it turned out, I just had to do the cowl, flaps and ailerons.
    I am anxious to start on my big 1/3 B-USA Super Cub. (winter project)

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Nice job on your DPM Super Cub, Mark. I'd like to rip off the ultracote on mine and do some fabric and unique paint scheme sometime too. Maybe this winter. How's your Keleo headers holding up?

    RE: Dave Patrick super cub

    Daniel, thanks.
    The fabric and dope finish is a time consuming endeavor, but well worth it. My Keleo headers are holding fine so far. I did read about them cracking or coming apart a while back and will just have to do the wait and see deal. I only have 6 flights on mine so far. I was having so much fun flying in a mass Cub squadron (only six), that I ran out of fuel and had to land long in the alfalfa field. I got a chin scrape on the cowl, but everything else is holding together just fine.

    Scott, I got my lettering done at my local hobby shop. He also runs a sign business with the hobbies. If you want to contact Scott at bullfrog@froghollowrc.com I'm sure he would help you out at very reasonable prices. He does sign work all over the country.
