Do you know of anyone who has 3D printed a bumper/sleeve that fits over the left and right front-most parts of the fuselage? I'm looking for a way to strengthen it as my son has crashed the DIY cub several times so it's getting banged up.


Old and Bold RC PILOT
Hi. Newbie to the world of RC planes and building Simple Cub.. question... does battery goes inside power pod on in nose of plane?
Different persons place the battery in a wide variety of positions and places but on mine I fit the battery in the power pod though I have also flown it with the battery mounted UNDER the powerpod just behind the motor/propeller. Not all of my batteries weigh the same or are the same physical size!

If your battery fits in the power pod and the plane flies OK with the battery in that position then stick to it!

have fun!
We have the battery mounted UNDER the powerpod just behind the motor/propeller. We decided to do so in order to lower the center of gravity for takeoff/landing. But I can also see that a lower center of gravity may effect flight maneuverability.
