    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    Question, does anyone know the distance from the bottom of the door to the floor on the full scale (100%) Cub?  I can do the math for the !/4 scale.

    Hey Cub Man, can I order a 1/4 scale instrument panel for my Cub yet?  Last thing I recall was you were working on one to get pictures.

    Thanks,
    David

    I have a Sig Clipped wing 1/4 scale Cub kit that I will be starting soon. Any tips on making it a full 1/4 scale Cub? Is it just a matter of extending the spars and adding a few ribs to achieve the full 110'' or so wingspan?

    Thanks


    Rafeek
    The Sig 1/4 size Cubs are what we call stand off scale. There are tons of things which separate them from true scale, both clipped wing and full span versions.

    In any case, I've had the clipped wing version for many, many years and also flown full size span versions. IMO, they should all be clipped. You can get lots more performance from it clipped wings when you want while still having a floater if you wish.

    The wing needs to be extended at the root. The clipped wing version builds as a one piece wing and the full span builds as a 2 piece wing. A full length 1 piece wing would be a bear. I was contantly hitting my clipped wing on everything in the shop and while transposrting. I would build the clipped wing and let it go at that. They fly great.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I think just being built as one and two piece. Of course the cabin top is different for the 2 types. It would be much easier to make a full span a clipped wing versus a clipped wing a full span.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***



    Here's one.  Let's say you build a full span Cub, fly it for a year or so, then decide to clip the wings.  Not having that much experience (but learning quickly) how much would be involved?

    And, by the way, if I were to do this again, I think even with a clipped wing, I'd want to make the center section part of the fuse with a wing tube for attachment.  It just seems more practical and probably a lot easier to transport.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    On the full scale Clipped Wing Cub they basically shortened the wings 1-1/2 bays at the root of the wing panels. You could do the same with the model by stripping the covering and moving the root rib in by the proper distance. This of course would require surgery to all the sheeting as well. I would just order a wing kit for the full wing and build 2 clipped wing panels and you could have 2 sets of wings ready to fly and you can choose which set for the day of flying. You would also have to build a new set of struts for the clipped wing.
    Later!!

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    I had actually considered buying the wing kit. And having a spare wing probably wouldn't hurt either. I think I could probably build and finish a wing in under two years. [X(]

    Thanks!

    I now have 3 Cubs, a 72" blue/white sunburst w/ Saito 72, a 72" L4 Grasshopper w/Saito 72 and a 90" still in the box that I've not decided on the power plant yet, ( Magnum 1.60 twin FS, 91 FS or a gas engine. Can I become a member of the Cub Brotherhood?

    Today was one of those extra-crispy Midwest autumn days. 42* at 4pm, dead calm, late afternoon light changing from yellow-orange to salmon. Saito 90-TS twin purring away in the nose of my Sig 1/5-scale... loops & hammerheads, touch-n-goes, slips & crabs, lazy spins. A perfect day!

    My Sig 1/5-scale is 88", non-clipped. The 120 Twin would be a perfect motor for this airframe!

    I am using a Gemini 160 in my 1/4 scale BUSA Cub and planning on getting an ASP 160 for my new Hanger 9 1/4 scale P18 ... The Gemini 160 is lots of power for a 1/4 cub if its not over weight

    Just finished rib stitches and tapes. Wing tanks (ply), cap handles and filler neck ring (lithoplate) epoxied in place. The PA-12 gets red paint after placing masks.

    RE: ***CUB BROTHERHOOD***

    OK guys , I want to find a 1/4 scale cub ARF... and the only one I am seeing for about $379 is
    the world model ones.. I do have a 20 size from them seems to be OK . I just wanted to check
    with you folks first about this. and to see if there was any other options. I am liking the red star-burst one's.
    I have also noticed that tower doesn't sell the kits anymore.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hanger 9 1/4 scale ARF J-3 Piper Cub is a good one. I have had all 3 versions they have made and the latest one is nice. It has scale seats, panel, opening door/window, scale landing gear, etc. I made the throttles, control sticks, etc. It is powered with a DLE 20 and weights 16#S. Flies awesome!!!!

    Ever hear of sweat shops?  Slave labor?  Uh... what else do you call it...? 

    Don't get me wrong, I buy the stuff myself out of necessity.

    As for the Hanger 9 BARF... excuse me!  I mean ARF,  that makes me sick.  All the work I'm going to!  But I can say "I made this!"  [8D] 

    Take care,
