  1. Greetings from Steamboat Springs Colorado. Although I'm new to the giant planes (a lot of stick time years ago with sailplanes and smaller power planes), I love the big birds and look forward to flying them. Just finishing a 1/5 scale Cub and a 1/4 scale super cub. Next on the building board is a 1/4 scale Beaver. All built as Alaskan bush planes.

    Looks Great @Tom Zulim What plans did you use for the supercub?
  5. Both are ARF. I wish I had time to build board-up from plans. Although I'm finding out ARFs still take a lot of time to finish them "right", and I'm OCD about everything so it takes even longer.

  8. J-3 Cub is a Tower Hobbies w/ an OS FS-62V.
    Super Cub is a Phoenix w/ a DLE-30.
    Both were reasonable builds with acceptable quality components for the most part; meaning most were okay but some of the provided hardware is total junk, so ended up using better quality replacements where necessary.
  9. Funny enough, I found exact 1/5 scale trophy-size moose antlers that can be tied to the struts of the Super Cub, just as they would be when hauled out of the Alaskan bush. Should make for some cool scale pics anyway; I don't think I'd fly it with the antlers attached
