    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    That is what I do to my bolts. I cant see in there and the rounded ends help guide it. I start it with my fingers first, then get with it using the ball driver. Aligning the wing is important. I usually use my bigger tool box to hold the wing, when someone isnt there to help. I'm gonna build a stand to hold the wing at the right height and angle for next year.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I had on my Bud Nosen cub two short dowels that would align the wing in place, putting in the bolts after that was a cinch although a helper had to suport the wing panel before I could add the strut.
    Now that I crashed the plane and totally had to rebuild the cabin I am going with an aluminumwing tube, this will provide more suport and make assembly much easier.
    Hope this helps.

    I saw exactly what you are talking about 2 weeks ago at our field. He painted his black so it wasnt that obvious. Good idea. The busa has dowels for alignment too.

    JRB1, what size cub is that you have? i only ask because of the heli you have inside for your pilot. looks nice.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    just slightly off topic, but what size floats would be about the right size for the 1/5 scale cub from Sig? i have a pair of .40 GP floats for my GP .40 size cub, but i'm pretty sure it's not 1/5 scale since the Sig anniversary kitis a little bigger. should i get the bigger set for the Sig kit? or would these still be about right? sorry for posting here, i didn't want to start a new thread just for a question.

    these are the .40 size:

    SPECS: Length: 34.5"
    For planes weighing: 5 - 9.5lbs
    From tip to step: 17.75"

    these are the .60 size:

    SPECS: Length: 41"
    For planes weighing: 8 - 15lbs
    From tip to step: 20"

    i'm not sure if the .40 size would be sufficient and don't want it to sit too low in the water or have issues getting up on plane and rotating.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I believe the rule of thumb on float length is 75% of the fuselage length - prop hub to rudder hinge line (not including the moving surface). There are a lot of great float threads out there if you need more help. To answer your question we'd need that dimension.

    I have the Hangar 9 Cub (80" span) that is 44" from prop hub to the rudder hinge on a set of Great Planes floats that are 34 1/4" long.
    I think they work great and float the plane with ease. I have a Saito 56 four-stroke for power which is pleanty but it sometimes can require lifting one float up to break free of flat calm water...just like the full size.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    Hi Crash Bandicute- this pedal plane is big enough for 2-5 year old kids. ~3' span and ~4' long. I was thinking of putting a Hazel Sig clipped wing scheme on it but then decided to stick with yellow for the overall visual impact of that color. If I was a kid getting this I would go 'ape' with glee, that's for sure! Isn't the little wooden engine and PVC pipe intake and exhaust idea cool? Marv at Aviation Products sure had great ideas designing these! The plans are really detailed.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    ARUP,

    You might want to check your wing loading.  Especially with two 5 year olds in there and this thing being pedal powered, I doubt they'll ever get off the ground!  [X(]

    But in all seriouness, that's an awsome toy!!!  Oh to be a kid again!!! 

    Take care,

    Hey David- that's funny! What's really funny is that I took some folks I work with to dinner and was telling them about project. One lady was believing it all when I told her it was an airplane for 2y/o to get in and really fly! She wasn't blonde, either. Everyone, including her, had a good laugh!
    rafeeki- it has a span of ~3 feet maybe 4. It's a clipped winged Cub!

    H9's 1/4 scale Cub.

    Someone asked if flew my mCX w/A123s (they know they're my fav battery); I said sure Dan said the posting made him laugh and blow beer out his nose.

    I do the Cub w/A123-10S2P for 18minutes of flying and 18minutes to recharge!

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I want in, this is a carl goldberg kit im not sure of the scale size but has a wingspan of 68" and is a cliped wing version. It is powered by a saito .91 and it has floats aswell. Oh what number would I be now? This plane is about 10 years old or older, build by a good freind of mine.He wanted me to have it and was going to give it to me but his wife threw a fit and told him he needed to sell it, so he sold it to me for a doller. I love this plane.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    so i have a question about the scale type cub landing gear. i've seen on some peoples planes that the i guess compression braces, that the bungees go on are sometimes straight so the bungees are parallel with each other, but the set i got from robart for the 1/5 scale, are 90 degrees from each other, so the bungees more or less twist, from one 'post' to the other. actually, this is the only time i've seen them twist like that. is that right or wrong, or doesn't matter? i've seen on actual aircraft they twist like that, but...

    Hi All
    Just wanted to wish all of the CUB BROTHERHOOD members a VERY MERRY XMAS and a Happy New Year. Hope everyone gets that NEW CUB PROJECT they have been wanting for. I am hoping that SANTA brings me that Kavan 50cc engine for my Balsa USA 1/3 Scale Cub project this year.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I got fed up with the way I've been carrying my cubs around when I put them in and out of the trailer, or in and out of the garage. This simplifies it a lot and all the parts can be bought at the hardware store. The wing nut screws onto one of those wood/machine screw combos. The J-3 needed a little engine maintenance yesterday and the NE-1 got moved in and out of the house to set the decals, too cold in the garage.
