Default My second Electricub

This is my second Electricub, here is the first I built from GP.
http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/show...ght=electricub

The first one was built per the plans and flew with the 600R motor just fine until it stopped working. I then tossed in a Rimfire 400 brushless motor and she flies great. This is one of my favorite electrics because it is big and flies like the real Cub. The only issue I have ever had with her is the window area, way too small and makes this look like a cartoon plane. I am not looking for super scale or else I would build a Sig Cub, I just want a large sport Cub flyer and this fits the bill. Mountain Models has a nice Cub, but a little too small though I am going to build the L4 soon. My other option was to make my GP .20 Cub electric but she would be pretty heavy.
For this build I am using everything in the kit, just enlarging the window area and adding the side stringer. She is built with white glue, not doing so well with CA lately and will be covered with Mono.

Added the side stringers and built the stab and rudder.

I finished my second GP electricub and she is a great flyer. The few mods I made makes a difference in the air, looks more like a piper cub than the original design. Flies great at half throttle with Rimfire 400, 3S 2200 30C lipo, 35 ESC. Covered with Econokote.

Nice builds. The way those two are flirting in the last batch of pics, you may have another on the way soon.

I don't have a short temper. I just have a quick reaction to B.S.
