I just bought one of these this past weekend, but it is missing the wing tube and struts. I see the post about the wing tube specs, does anyone have a set of struts or ideas on how to get some?

Thanks,

Phil

Phil,

Sorry, for the super late reply. I haven't been on this thread in a long time. I don't think too many folks follow this thread anymore.

To answer your question, I think it's going to be difficult, if not impossible, to find the struts. You could check Horizon Hobby for parts from the Hangar 9 1/4-scale Cub but last time I looked it was "slim pickin's" on those parts still available. Only other options that I can think of are to find some from someone's crashed plane (probably not too likely either - you could look forever). Probably the best option is to try to custom build some of your own. I can provide pictures and measurements if you decide to go that route...

Good luck in your search,

Eric

The Hangar 9 SuperCub windscreen fits. The wing tube also fits, and the landing gear is very close. The H9 cowl also fits. I have the DP Clipped wing with a Valley View RC 40 cc twin for power and she flies really well. With the clipped wings, I cannot verify if the wing struts fit, but I think they are very very close. Good luck!

Phil,

I just ran across the Phoenix 1/4-scale PA-18 Super Cub Model. They offer several parts including a wing strut set. Price is pretty high at $57.99. I have no idea whether they will actually fit or not. The wing span for the DPM is 105.5, if think, the Phoenix model is listed at 107".

I think the Hangar 9 will be closer to what you want. The Han 9 J-3 Cub also has the exact same struts as the SuperCub. Keep looking.

BTW; the J-3 struts are 30 1/2 inches in length from tip to bottom of threads
