Nice looking model.

As was mentioned elsewhere the large gap at the leading edge of the flap when it's dropped is actually supposed to be there, in fact it makes the flap more effective as it keeps the air flowing over it at high angles of attack, see pic below of a full size cub

Time to put stickers on this, not something I'm good at.

Will the soapy water trick work with the plastic, very sticky type decals ? I always get creases or get em cockeyed.

Finished, balanced without lead, weighs a bit with 8 servos in, be a good choice when it's breezy.f.cub 001.jpgf.cub 002.jpgf.cub 003.jpg

How the struts attach, one bolt to remove, slacken the others and struts fold flat to the wing. struts 002.jpgstruts 001.jpg

Finally got it flown, a click of aileron all it needed, NGH 17 plenty good enough, 1/4 throttle has it tootling nicely, open it up n the aeros are nice n big.

After me saying on another thread "I've never had an exhaust fall off" today it did, checked throttle cut n failsafe before I flew it, all good, half a dozen circuits in, off it comes, engine would not cut, tickover too quick to land it, fly it till it's empty then, 25 minutes later it lands like a pussy cat.

First Impression of the engine is good, not too noisy with a wrap around pitts on, and very frugal on juice, silencer coming off Is down to me I think, never checked after running a few tanks through, and don't think I threadlocked it.

Well done John, Glad to hear all went well despite the zorst moment.

I have an NGH 10cc engine, I had trouble setting the throttle up to get a good usable range on the throttle stick. How did you get on ?

D.D.

Engines been no trouble D.D, starts easy, throttles well, and noise was o.k with NGH pitts on, looks like I'll have a problem getting another, no stock showing so far.
