rccrippen,
Where did you get the landing gear from?

Ferki,
Go to "piperj3gear.com" and you'll find them there. There kinda pricey, but there hand made
one at a time out of 6061 Aircraft aluminum, and I think they work as exactly as advertized!

Robart makes some that are very close to these but cost more. I found these in my Model Aviation
magazine. The add's in there almost every month. just tell him what model you have and he already
has the dimensions. ( He's gonna ask you to send them anyway) Mine fit perfect!
Take a look at his web page and tell me what you think?

RICK

PS What model Cub do you have?

I have the new H9 Cub. I really don't see much of a reason to put new gear on this cub since the gear it already has works fine and looks great( other than the plastic "scale bungees"). I guess it would be cool though to see the gear work on a hard landing. The stock gear also seems to be very tough. I fly off of a mowed down pasture on my property that is very rough, and I fly everyday, so the gear goes through its paces, and it is still fine. I put some under inflated Du-Bro 1/4 scale cub wheels that are 4-1/4" on it and those help a lot. If anyone wants to make their Cub look a little more bushy, take the covering off the landing gear, to me this looks a lot better.

Thanks,
Ferki

Has anyone used an OS 70 FS II on the Hangar 9 80" J-3 ARF? IF so, were you able to have the exhaust muffler route through the tunnel at the bottom of the firewall? My OS 70 exhaust header will not allow the muffler to align with and route into this tunnel.

I mounted my OS.52 nearly inverted and angled the muffler exhaust out the bottom. It would not fit into that tunnel because I wanted the engine to be as comletely enclosed as possible. I found later that I needed to remove the tunnel to gain room for balance, battery, and receiver anyway. See picture:

I will have just the opposite problem. I am having to put my battery at the back bulkhead of the servo compartment to balance the weight of the larger OS FS 70II Surpass engine. It weighs about 22 or 23 oz with muffler. If I had the correct angle header pipe, the muffler would fit right through the cutout in the engine bulkhead.

Great! You can add a scale tail wheel gear plus some brass tubes to go over the tail bracing wires and it won't cause CG problems.

How does one get a new hub cap for the Hangar 9 J-3 ARF? I checked Horizon Hobby and Hangar 9 websites without success.

New Subject: If anyone is contemplating the use of an OS 70 Surpass II four stroke, use Tower Hobbies part number LXCB00 or the OS number 72109600(same part). This allows the exhaust to pass thru the cutout in the lower firewall and the cowl only has to be cut a small amount on the bottom aft side.

Don't mess around w/ the websites for something like that (a replacement hubcap). Pick up the phone and call H9 tech support. If they've got one lying around they'll send it to you, probably at no charge.

I've talked with Hangar 9(Horizon Hobby) and only complete wheel sets are available. Maybe by posting on this site, someone might have one or two laying around. Thanks for the advice.

Flight Report on Hangar 9 J-3 ARF. Yesterday I had three flights on the my new J-3. Other than being a bit squirely on take-off, it flew very nicely. Landings are a piece of cake. Loops straight with no roll off at all. The OS 70 Surpass II with a Zinger 14 X 4 is a good combo. Re: the takeoffs. I'm sure a bit more pilot practice will make them straight as well. Of course, the take off roll is so short that regardless of the direction it leaves the ground, it can be flown into the proper direction almost immediately. I still would like to find a hubcap if anyone has an extra. Lost one on the first flight.

I'm keeping mine stock except for the additional things like a Fuel Dot, External Charge Jack and Safety Switch. Plus I'm going to check the Aileron Servo's to make sure there glued enough... and if not, I'm re-gluing and adding a screw to each block. Also, the landing gear needs more support from the inside.


Watch it guys,[sm=50_50.gif] putting a engine in any model beyond the engine requirements can cause some problems if you aren't careful. Hanger 9 Engineers tests these planes and suggest what's best for it. I know I'm not qualified to tell Hanger 9, Sig, Goldberg or Great Planes that they are wrong, and that I know more. JMO, and I feel that all of you should think about that.

have the H9 Cub and fly it with a Saito .56. I thought it might be too small but the first take off it was in the air before I had the throttle to half way. It flys and performs scale-like and I'm at 5600 ft above sea level. The .70 might be a good idea for a float plane and you can always throttle back.

I want my scale plane to fly ... well ....SCALE. To have a "P-51" Cub with unlimited vertical performance and loops and rolls like a fighter just doesn't do the plane justice. We have Cubs at the airport and have yet to see one 3-D fly. BTW I get all kinds of accolades from other club members for flying my scale birds to look like real planes. That was what fascinated me about radio controlled model airplanes 35 years ago when I started.

Just finished putting mine together. Split the cowl to fit the Saito 72. Added a glider/banner tow hook. Put in the deck to hide the guts and to support "Bob". Not exactly flying weather here. Not sure when I'll get her out, but I can hardly wait!

You're gonna love it, especially if you enjoy scale flying. She slows down to a crawl and landings make anyone look like an expert! Even with just a Saito .56 and flying at mile-high Prescott, it loops from level flight and does the prettiest stall turns you could ever want. The only problem I've seen is even light wind makes you fly it faster than scale so you don't feel like it will be blown over and rudder is definately one of the controls on this plane. Bank and yank doesn't always work and makes the plane look awkward, especially flying slow and with a little wind.

Even sitting in the pits it draws attention as "the best built ARF I ever saw". Definately my 'relaxed' plane when I need a break from warbirds or that brushless Stryker electric jet.

Enjoy,

If anyone needs it I have a spare hubcap for this plane. One of my tires fell off in flight and I never found it again. Long story short I ended up with a spare tire and hubcap.

Does anyone know if there are floats made for this plane or what would be the right size float. Has anybody flown one with floats

Ferki, I PM'd you a couple of days ago concerning the hubcap mentioned in your post on 12/31/06 above. I could certainly use it. PM me, Thanks, Ron H

I wonder if the Saito 72 is too much motor?

I think so. Certainly much more than it needs. I have two of these. One is the "PNP" w/ the Evo 46, which is way more power than it needs, the other is the older ARF. I have a Saito 56 in that one, and that's just about right. This airplane is a real floater that flies on the wing, not the engine. Very scale-like.

The 72 four stroke is not "to much" for the plane. You just don't need it for take off and landing. I have the OS 70 and use only partial power during the initial takeoff run and use a 14X4 prop so it will slow down for landing. But the extra power makes vertical manuevering fun. My H9 J3(See pics back up in the Sep '06 period of this thread) now has well over a hundred flights and it is one of my more fun and relaxing airplanes. I'd say you'd enjoy the Saito 72.

Hanger 9 said the engine range on 4 strokes was to 82. so that's what I used. I had visions of eventually putting floats on and thought the larger engine might be useful. I flew it today for the first time, it flys great. The first take off was a little wild til it was airborne, the second takeoff I was a lot more careful and very slowly applied throttle, she went straight down the runway and very gently lifted off, about 1/4 throttle. I have the feeling that my cub may have unlimited verftical, I'm sure a 56 would be plenty
