    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Not quite... I just read all 15 plus pages and am going to be getting one of these after the wifey gets my gift card for the LHS... SHHHH.... I accidentally found it in our room... she doesnt know LOL.... ( I hope she would not plan on giving a $150 gift card for the LHS to anybody else!)

    So I will be picking one of these up.... wanted one since I first saw it. I currently have a 3d Hobby shop 47" Yak 54... love that plane too.... unfortunately I started out flying in parks where I can still fly the yak however I am thinking that the cub is going to outgrow that space... maybe the local fairgrounds when nobody is around?

    Once you have flown it a few times in a bigger space the park might not be a problem. The 45+ degree climbout it can do helps. I have had problems with rough ground (horse hoof prints) making the takeoff roll erratic. But once it is in the air, the slow airspeed makes it easy to keep in close and land where you want it. I use low rates for takeoff and high rates for the rest of the flight.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    It doesn't have to be dead. It's just recovering.

    Look at it this way, Kinda like school, the first class has graduated, now it's time for the second class of pilots to take over. And you guys get it easy, we already did a lot of the work for ya.

    Heck if you run into a problem, give me a holler, I'll be glad to help you out.

    zx11, put bigger wheels on her. I had tundra tires on mine, it would roll over just about anything.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    So i bought one of these planes recently and its my first plane

    iv got a few videos on youtube of my high speed taxing any comments on those / tips would be great

    i understand that i need to let the tail come up and more speed before take off .....

    here are the vides:

    first taxi

    second taxi

    last taxi due to broke prop

    i have since installed huge tundra tires to aid with ground handling....

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Video of Gerry's E-Flite J3 so, everyone can see up close and personal that you can balance this RC Model very effectively using the smaller 3-Cell, 2100mAH, Li-POLYs and maintain her super light and agile resulting in graceful and smooth flight characteristics.

    For those that fly this model and tip stall (most importantly in a spin) then, they maybe in a setup with incorrect CG or other issues.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Hand launching ??

    has anybody done this or attempted this ?

    the only reason im asking is a friend of mine who flys alot watched me try to take off on this crappy field and he asked me why i dont try to hand launch it ....

    or have a second person hand launch with a running start and full throttle...

    it does seem pretty light and with a good enough toss i think it might work but....

    any ideas would be great

    I wouldn't try it since bigger models need more flying speed. I think a hand launch would result in the cub trying to climb out from a full stall condition.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Looking for help with my j3 cub. When I test fitted the wing joiner inside the two wing panels, it was not that tight. Is this normal? Or will the epoxy just keep everything tight. Also reading the manual about glueing the wing panels, it reads "apply epoxy to both the wing joiner and he joiner opening of both wing panels." This is a bit confusing, does this mean only apply glue to the actual joiner piece and inside the joiner opening. I would assume that glue would also need to be applied to the wood rib where each panel touches?

    any help is appreciated.

    I don't think my joiner was that tight fitting width wise. Top to bottom it had to be sanded slightly to fit. I used epoxy on the ribs in addition to the opening and joiner.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Great thanks, that is what I did, looks like it worked fine. The joiner was not really as tight as I would have liked, but once the epoxy was in there it felt pretty snug.

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Well i did it

    i flew my J3 cub for the first time

    on youtube: Eflite J3 first flight

    it was a little windy but nothing we thought it wouldn't handle so off we went

    pretty good flight

    the wind caught it at one time and did a barrel roll.... which i didn't even notice but the guys said it happened and indeed in the video around
    1:56 and i recovered it ...

    and then i decided to land it because it was sketchin and stalled it on approach

    and the hand launch was very successfully it could have been better if i gave it full power right away but seemed to work
    according to my assistant it was hard to hold due to the balance point..... which is like right under the landing gear ...

    over all good flight cant wait to go up again

    oh and btw im a beginner pilot and this is my first plane first flight

    RE: E-flite J-3 Cub 25 ARF

    Not bad for a first try at RC. I stalled my first attempt at landing, too. I don't think the cub is a good trainer since it can get squirly during take off. You might want to invest in a RC simulator.
