    You ever buy parts for the C-182? I all but totaled mine this past weekend. Could possibly be epoxied back together but the forward fuse section is pretty bad. Firewall in pieces, the plastic nose wheel turning piece gone. Windscreen in pieces The wings are okay. I'm wondering what comes with the replacement fuse. Do you know? Just the piece of foam?

    Hey Whitty as per painting....First some light sanding, just to take the "gloss" off of EPP(foam) Use several very very light "dusting" coats of paint, let dry 10mins in between coats, repeat until you have a solid paint job. BTW paint bleeds pretty bad under masking tape.. have a good one flying!! (do a little test spot first to make sure paint doesnt eat foam, I just use cheap rattle can krylon)

    I have a question for ya'll. I have a new stratos, all but the computer, because I beat up my first one , badly but the darn thing still flies. Anyway, I would like to paint my new foamie and want to know what paint or prep do I do to ensure that I don't hurt the foam. Any suggestions? Happy Flying........Whitty

    I have a question for you. Is it true if you have a 20amp esc your battery should be 1.5 to 2 times more than that example my stock e flite battery is a 3200mah 2c so that would be 3.2x 2= 64amp. So if i got a 3300mah 2c 3.3 x 2 =66 amps would this battery be ok and if so wouldn't a 3300mah result in more flight time?

    About the wheels, this plane really likes smooth hard packed dirt, or even better asphalt. It will take off from smooth cut grass, but the wheel pants really drag on the taller types of grass.
    About the charger, lol I am still using a cheapie eflite one too. I need a better one, but this one still works. There are some good ones at, they have really good service, one of the best.
    Doesnt the futaba 6 come with a rx that you got from your boss, and you really dont need digital servos, unless you just have to have them. What type of servo connectors are they? Great to hear about you getting in the air, hope all goes well.

    Man, the Pres has got all the toys and tools. I need to get a good battery charger/balancer. The one that came with the Cub is ultra cheapie and I think the stock charger that came with the Cessna is not much better.

    Ran the pattern a few laps and brought her in. Practically stopped her in the air as it was getting more gusty but go her down safely. Really want to trash the HZ 27mhz tx and rx and replace with the Futaba 6EX I now have. I know I'll have to replace the rx but I think I'll also have have to replace the servos as the connectors are not compatible. Should not be as big a deal with the Airfield Cessna, hopefully as I think it has the latest digital servos installed. I want to hang on to the Super Cub as long as I can keep it in a few pieces so I can convert it to a floatplane for next year's fly in.

    How's your bird holding up? Any gotcha's or mods I should be aware of ?

    Cheers !

    Howdy CR,

    Got back from KY Friday and was at the filed on Saturday afternoon. Brought the HZ Super Cub with me. Kind of a gusty southernly, but gave it a go anyway. Club Pres was only guy there and he helped me get airborne as the hand launcher.I replaced the wheels with bigger 2.5's but our field was in pretty rough shape. How does the Cessna run on the grass? Okay?
