自分の4ChのTX / RX
This is the first plane that I have ever bought. I have enjoyed learning on it BUT it took a lot to get the plane balanced correctly. I had to cut a slot forward of the battery compartment and put the battery further forward to get it even close to balancing. I also removed the rear tail wheel to lighten the tails weight.
After I got the plane balanced it has been great fun to fly. I have crashed it many times and with a bit of glue and some patience it was back in the air. I don't know if I would recommend it as a first plane but with a bit of understanding of where the CG should be it should be ok.
I used a turnighy 2211 2300kV motor, a hobbyking 8-10A ESC, a zippy compact 500mah battery and a 6*4 TGS sport prop.
I received mine very quickly (from China to Italy). The plane looks very nice and all parts are very easy to assemble. All parts are well finished, good quality EPO, with some plastic parts and many screws, good packaging too. In my plane I had to cut out a little of the plastic window part to make the wing go snuggly into its place, otherwise the wing servo hit the plastic cabinet. I found only a mistake..in the tail, the elevator rush is blocked by control horn of stabilizer. Did you get the same problem? how did you figure out?Nice little J3 Cub, as Wazza stated, you will need to gently remove windscreen/wingmount and re-glue to have the wing line up horizontally with tailplane. I always expect a certain amount of re-finishing is required with any ARF model. You could easily throw in the motor, esc and receiver but if you take your time with an evenings worth of effort you end up with a nice smooth balanced and stable little plane, all part of the fun :) Cheers, DanCarbon fiber rod placement. I drilled out a tight fitting hole through the ceter area where the servo is and pushed the rod through. I glued it only at this center section first. Then fully mount the wing on the plane including struts. then turn the plane upside down and place thw top of one wing half on a flat surface. I hung the rest of the plane off the edge of a sturdy table for this. With the wing held flat on the surface glue the rod into the groove. Repeat on the other half wing and cover with scotch tape. My wing now holds the dihedral when removed. and the wing halves are arrow straight along the leading edge. I have been away from this hobby for far too long and now coming back I wanted a small crash test plane so I could work the rust out of these old pilots thumbs of mine. this plane is doing just that. for the cost not bad at all. But I do not recommend this a s a first airplane. It requires way too much experience to get it to fly properly.Post by Hobbykink for sure...161 likes... when everybody Know that plane stink and certainly its not for begginers. Neither PRO can fly with it.... shame on you Hobbyking.
