For those who want to take a look, these are the plans I put together while building the Cub.

If anyone fancies a go with the 3D printed parts I'll put those up separately but this should give an idea of what's involved as far as the foam/depron part of the build goes.


Post the 3D parts, I may do this as one of my cold rainy day projects.

Don't say I didn't warn you... 😉

Printed pretty much all of it at 30% infill and two outer walls.  Plenty of CA and kicker used to bond it all together too 🙂
Whoever said nothing is impossible had obviously never tried slamming a revolving door...

Oh and due to HK not doing any of the motors any more this is the same one but from Banggood!

Seems pretty good on the 11x7 prop too - very scale flying and plenty in reserve 🙂

And here's flight number two from yesterday.
Still a bit of trimming and maybe adjust the CG position I think but other than a lot more practice on the sticks for me it seems to be flying well!

Only major change I'm going to make though is to swap out the big squishy tundra wheels for some normal ones as on the runway it just makes it bounce excessively on landing!!

Few shots of the flight taken by Tracy.
Doesn't look too bad even if I do say so myself! IMG_0060.jpg

I don't listen to warnings 😃 😃 

What kv did you run, I have a few larger motors and yes to shopping somewhere else then HK, no stock or very little.

I'm running 1100kv but it's a 911W motor so loads in the tank being a hefty lump.  Firewall is pretty much set up for a 3548 motor so if you've got something like that it'll be fine.

I have another Turnigy 3648 1450kv motor in my bin which is the same one I am running in my Extreme and loads of power spinning a 11X7 prop. I want to change the shaft in it first because the original one in the other guy broke 1 minute into flight and since I made my own shaft out of other ss rod it's been fine.

That should work a treat!

It is a inrunner though 🙂

Bit of bracket design to make it fit and you'll be fine 😉

Changed the wheels over for some JP 4 inch ones with spacers to fit the Tundra undercarriage setup.

A definite change in "squish" you might say.  The soft foam Tundra wheel you can press down on lightly and deform the whole tyre which is why I got so much bounce on the landing.

The new tyres are soft rubber so have some give to them but will prevent the incredible bounce factor of the other wheels.  No more pogo stick landing for me (hopefully)!
The others will be fine on grass though if it's a bit rough but looking forward to trying the new ones on the runway.

Have also updated the video now I've figured out the new editing software to sort the titles and fades etc with the stock audio and music.  All still a learning curve since I binned Windows a few months back and switched to Linux!!
