Scale Nelitz 1/3 scale Cub build


I like 'em "BIG"!
Radial in a Cub?
:laughing:Just seeing if you were paying attention. :laughing: Actually for a 1/3 scale, perfect engine size would be a nice little 60-70cc twin right? Never owned a cub but so many people are really enjoying them it seems. Wouldn't it be cool if someone made a little 70-80cc quad?


Damn I'm hungry
Would this be to much engine???

Mine weighed 33 lbs and I had a Saito 270 twin modified to ignition but still glow fuel , let me tell you it was scale flying but I saw Bob Nelitz fly his super scale cub with a quadra 35, yes quadra, remember he was the very first to design such a large airplane and gas engines where at there infancy, but it flew like the full size with a 65 hp engine, very very scale flying


640cc Uber Pimp
Sorry to say but not that familiar with cubs. How big will this plane be. And what is the expected weight going to be. Looks like you really going go all out making this A scale as possible. Looks like this is going to be a interesting build and will be enjoying the ride to completion.

Engine thoughts............ The OS Pegasus 320. The Kavan 50cc might be perfect. Or a cheaper twin 2 stroke.
For what it is worth, I had a Pegasus 320. Ran it a couple of times but never installed it in a plane. Just wasn't my style at the time. Now i wish I still had it. Omg, talk about a sa-weeeeet sounding power plant. Would be so perfect for that cub.
