    1/4 Scale Cub Question

    I have bought a completed SIG 1/4 scale cub that has standard Futaba servos installed, for just slow normal cub flying do you think these are sufficiant or should I put 1/4 scale servos on the flight controls?

    I hate to buy big servos at 30 or 40 bucks each when I have a bunch of new Futaba 3001's laying around.

    I will be using a 6 volt pack by the way...

    Thanks

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    I have a BUSA 1/4 Cub with standard servos on everything but the rudder which actuates the tailwheel too, so I use a 3302 on that. It weighs 18lbs. with an XYZ 26cc engine. I really horse it around, one wheel take-offs and landings, roll 10-15ft. and yank it off the ground, that kind of stuff and have zero problems. Its really a blast to fly and I enjoy just floating around the sky too. Great flying airplane. You will have no problems with standard servos, enjoy it..

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    If you are worried about power, the best buy anywhere is the Hitec HS-645BB it has 106 oz on 4.8v and 133 oz on 6v. And you can buy them for $26.82 when you buy four at a time. Unless I am building something requiring mini servos, they are the only ones I buy.

    I have a Sig 1/4 Cub and it has standard servos though out. Unless your going to be doing stunts ( if it is a clipped wing) you will not have any problem with the standards.

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    Awsome, Thanks i feel alot better.

    I got a great deal on it, the old guy couldnt fly anymore and sold it to me for $125.00

    It is doped and fabric covered with a Zenoah G23 that looks new. The paint is faded and needs to be redone but you can tell this plane has never had even the slightest hanger rash or crash.

    Faded is real cool... it looks... like a real Cub you might find at a small airport! I would not change a thing. I have a B-USA with G23 - a real good combo IMO. Have fun!

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    Here is my Bud Nolsen 1/4 scale I am working on, it has a Satio 150 4-stroke for power with on board glow, scale gear, light system and big tires like a bush plane. Come on warm weather !!!

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    The planes from Bud Nolsen were all kits and I don't know if anything is still being made. There are guys on here that could tell you more but I just don't know. You could look them up on Google to see if they have a web site.

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    Would you guys recommend a 2-stroke, 4-stroke or a gas engine for a 1/4 scale hanger 9 piper cub?

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    A plane that size Gas would be the best because a big enough 4 stroke or a 2 stroke would drink you in the poor house paying for glow fuel....

    RE: 1/4 Scale Cub Question

    PC-4I agree with the other guys here. I have a Sig 1/4 scale that originally flew with a Saito 1.80. Plenty of power, but man does that engine like fuel! I went to a RCGF 26 gasser and couldn't be happier.
