    Simple Cub seems under-powered

    Hello everyone! This is my first post on any forum let alone the FliteTest one so that just shows how desperate I am :p I scratch built an FT Simple Cub (my first build) using a cheap A2212-6 22000kV motor, ESC and prop bundle from Amazon. I also preemptively bought a 3s 3000mah battery...

    Simple Cub Power Pod setup

    Hey Folks, I've almost finished building my first FliteTest plane, the Simple Cub. It's my first build of anything in about 40 years... and it's been excellent... and fun. I'm using Power Pack B with a 3S 1300mAh battery. The build video shows the ESC on the bottom of the power pod but then...

    Crumpled Cub gear

    This was actually a good landing, but there's only so much that foam gear can take. I 3d printed a replacement from the FT Thingiverse page which is much more solid.

    Simple Cub - Piper cub - rasterized yellow burst style.

    Hi there, My local Club is having a Cub only Fun Fly next. Fortune would have it, I had the plans (for B and A sized) and components to go into both. I will say I am not doing much different than Josh did. So I won't bore you. but based on the way the simple Scout (C sized) handled landings at...

    Simple cub

    Could you add a tail wheel to the simple cub, any links to a tail wheel I could buy and glue/tape onto the rudder like the Hobbyzone Champ. The rudder on my simple cub has a buldge on the backside of the hindge will that affect the flight characteristics of it will post a picture later.

    Looking at STOL options

    Hi Friends, Ive thinking about getting a STOL type aircraft to counteract that fact that I cant easily access the larger flying spaces these days. Something like the Tundra is a nice choice, but going with the FT style I was thinking about going with the Bushwhacker... But the new FT Simple...

    Automotive Paint (!/?)

    Just scratch built my second 4ch FT Simple Cub with pontoons, and I'm liking the finished product more than my first attempt - enough to want to paint it! So I'm not a veteran of the Flite Test community or anything (having only built two planes), but I do work as an automotive painter at a...
