    Just in time for the cold weather moving into the Northeast!! Not just a build but a 'project' and as it goes we'll reveal what that 'project' is! It'll be a quick build and then we'll be on to the 'project' part of the 'project'! So here it is........

    The biggest three letter word in aviation has got to be 'Cub' and today we start a giant of a Cub, The World Models 1/3 scale Super Cub.

    Designed around the Zenoah GT-80 engine and with a wingspan of 141 in. (3580mm) it's a great looking plane that is ready for whatever you throw at it. We're using a 102cc BME-102 and plan to put it to work whenever possible but we'll get to that in a later video!!

    Other details include;
    5 channels, 8 servos required
    Built up plywood and balsa construction
    Pre-hinged control surfaces
    Bright and shiny Toughlon covering
    Complete hardware included
    Fuel tank and pneumatic wheels included
    Removable horizontal stabs

    Thank you to the sponsors that have made this project possible;
    Express Pawn & Gun, www.ExpressPawnAndGun.com
    Airborne Models, US distributor for World Models, www.Airborne-Models.com

    and thank you to everyone at GiantScaleNews.com!

    I should make special mention here that it was @pawnshopmike that stepped up and got this project started with a generous donation when I told him what the 'project' is that I have in mind!

    Thanks Mike!

    Going to be a great plane. Too bad they didn't double bevel that flap to offer more options but other than that I've heard nothing bad about this plane. I've seen one fly with a DA engine pulling more G's than most aerobatic planes so they are built tough for sure!!

    Looks great Bart. Will follow along intently.

    Nice, I always wanted the 1/3 clipped version done up like Planebender's, Looking forward to the rest of the build
  8. I have the 1/3 clipped on 3w106. Awesome plane

    Get rid of all the hardware though. It's all Chinese junk and will strip and break. Otherwise they are built well 596034732_LHTmE-M.jpg cub crash.jpg
  9. Ha! Sweet and I agree. They do smoke good too. Here's mine. :)

    Awesome! Which hardware pieces are you talking about? I noticed the steel pushrods need a good coating of paint or something to avoid rusting. Anything else? What did you replace yours with?
