Paul's Planes Super Cub page!

This is my Hobby Lobby Super Cub.  It seems like a very well designed kit, and I only made a few modifications to the original design.  Power is a  6V Speed 400 with a Graupner 1700 series 2.33/1 gearbox controlled through a Aveox A15 ESC.  The flying prop will be a APC 10 x 4.7 Slowflyer prop.  I have 2 batteries for this plane, Sanyo 600AE 7 and 8 cell packs.  My Cub is covered with transparent orange Monokote.  The radio I use is a Hitec Flash 5 System X with a 555 micro Rx and 2 HS-81 servos.

Final weight of 20 ounces.

Wing-loading of 9 ounces/sq.'

Visit AERO CRAFT, the manufacturer of the Hobby Lobby Super Cub.

Modifications I made to the Cub:

1. Added 1/16 sheeting to the lower forward inside of the cabin sides.

2. New front wing mount former with longer legs to transfer the wing loads better.

3. I used 3 strips instead of 2 to form the wingtips and stabilizer front.

4. Added gussets similar to the former in item #2 to the rear wing mounting plate.

5. Solid balsa rear wing/fuselage fairing to strengthen wing bolt area of wing. 


I will add photos and weights as construction progresses.
