    Who Makes The Best 1/4 Scale J-Cub Kit?

    I've been looking for a new project. I've got a converted McCullach 28cc weedeater engine that i'm dying to put in the air. I've decided on a 1/4 scale Cub. Sig offers a kit, but who else? Im not looking for a clipped wing. Who else makes a good quality kit of the J-3 Cub.

    BalsaUSA Kit

    If you're a builder, the Balsa USA kit will be
    your best bet for a 1/4 scale Cub. It's a good
    kit. I have built the plane. I've also built the
    Sig 1/4 scale Cub, but the Balsa USA kit offers
    the truest to scale design. See: www.balsausa.com

    Balsa USA, you need to like to build, and be patient with the process.

    It has a two piece wing to make transportation and storage easier, although set up at the field is going to take longer.

    I wouldn't knock the Sig out of contention, though, it does have some advantages.

    Isn't a 1/4 scale Cub alittle small for a 28cc engine? I have a 1/5 scale and fly it with a 52 4s.
    Damn gravity!!!

    A 1/4 scale Cub will fly well with any engine from a 120 4-stroker up to a G38 gasser.

    I certainly wish my GP 60 cub (1:4.7 scale) had a two-piece wing. I fretted for hours trying to decide if I wanted to bash the kit into a 2-piece wing.

    My friend has a Sig with the 108" one piece wing. Unfortunatlely, he lives on the 12th floor of an apartment. He has done more damage going in and out of the elevator than trying to fly it.......

    are all the Balsa USA kits
    of the same standard???
    Have been hearing that some are excellent
    while others are not that good!

    I have a Sig Cub that has been modified. Great flying plane with a G38 up front. Looking over the blueprints for the Sig and the Balsa USA they appear about the same. I will agree they are not a punch out and assemble plane. You must be good at cutting miter joints.

    The Balsa USA Cub is a winner. I have been flying mine
    for 17 yrs. I have a Quadra 35 in it. It flys just like my full
    scale Cub. You might want to check if you decide on the
    Sig Cub, because the nose & cowl are narrower and will
    not let you use engines like the Qudra or G-38. At least
    you can not get them under the cowl. At the time I
    bought mine it was $ 69.95.

    How about the dynaflight 104" Super Cub? I had one with a 25cc Homelite conversion and it flew great. I crashed it when I was just learning to fly with the flaps and I dialed in 90 degrees (rookie) when coming in deadstick and the plane stopped cold in the air and did a 25 foot nose dive (I froze). I now know not to use so much flaps at that slow of airspeed but the plane was a super flyer. Easy to build too, tons of left over wood included with the kit.
    Thanks,
