Default Hyperion Cub 10e Build

We got the Hyperion Cub 10e for our online shop and I just had to build it. Sorry if this build thread goes a little slow, as I have limited time these days.

Here is the box as it comes from the dealer.

This is the Hyperion power set you get when you buy kit with the power set.


This kit includes the power set which includes:
HP-Z2213-20 BRUSHLESS MOTOR

You could also buy the kit and use the Hacker A20-20L with the Hacker X-20 ESC or equivalent as well.

Here one half of the wing. The first step is to cut open the covering for the servo tray and servo wire exit hole.

Servos are installed. With these servos, an extension is required as the wires barely make it our the servo wire exit holes.

Aileron servo horns and push rods installed. The plywood wing joiner sits between the two wing halves.

After lightly sanding the wing joiner and used 15-minute epoxy to join the 2 halves of the wing together. The joiner does provide slight dihedral in the wing.

Next up: installation of the stabilizer and vertical fin. The rudder and elevator are joined with covering and do not require hinges. I should get to this step later today or tomorrow.

Hi,

I've been looking for some information on this model ever since I saw one on a stand at out Nationals in the UK but so far nothing's appeared so I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops. The initial thread where you mentioned you were going to do an online build was my main reason for joining this forum!

Thanks all!

I did a little more and will get the pics up in the morning. One note, though the instructions stated the elevator and rudder are attached with covering instead of hinges, that is not correct. The rudder has CA hinges. They must have made a change after the instructions were done.

Here I had to cut the covering to open up the slot for the horizontal stabilizer. The old trim iron came in handy here as well.

Here is the horizontal and verticle stabilizers. The elevator is hinged with the covering. The rudder with CA hinges.

I cut and removed the covering so I could glue the horizontal stabilizer.


Here it is installed. Used 15-minute epoxy.

Here is the entire tails section complete. Use CA for the CA hinges on the rudder.

Nice progress Chris!

Questions on the hinges for the ailerons and the rudder: were the slots pre-cut or did you have to do that? Was the hinge material included with the kit or do you have a favorite material? I assume some extra matching covering material was supplied for the elevator hinge?

The hinge slots for the aileron and rudder were pre-cut and the CA hinges were already inserted. The elevator just came with the covering hinge attached and ready to go. Otherwise I would have used CA hinges. There is no extra covering with the kit.

Here, I got the control horns installed on the elvator and rudder. Yes the one on the rudder is crooked! My bad. The guide tube for the push rods were already installed. I just had to find the opening under the covering, slit it open and insert the push rods.


I don't like the fact that the screws provide poke out the other side. I will have to get out the Dremel and cut off the tips!

Here again, like the aileron servos, I had to lengthen the servo tray to fit the servos. Like I said before, I am using the smallest recommended servos. Take care doing this, as I broke one of the aileron servo mounts by puting too much pressure on it. It was easily fixed, but I would rather not have to deal with it.

Well I have installed the rudder and elevator servos. Again, I used Waypoint W-060BB Servos and Dubro Mini E/Z Connectors to attach the servo arm to the push rods.

I am now going to work on the landing gear, which should not take too long and move on to the motor mount. I will try to post pictures a little later, but the pics may have to wait until tomorrow. Sorry!
