I previously built the kit version and this is a replacement RR version. It is much easier in the RR version as most of the work is done for you, sorting through all the nuts and bolts. The plane is a great flyer and that is why I bought the second one.
Nice plane but has flaws
Posted by Don H. on 27th Jun 2017
I ordered the receiver ready unit and installed a Spectrum AT8010T receiver. This plane has analog servos and normally require a 22ms frame rate, but new Spectrum receivers will only run an 11 ms frame rate, even when setting 22ms in transmitter. However testing on bench servos seemed to be OK, same with flying, no problem with 11ms rate. When bench testing, prop flew off taking collet with it. Reinstalled prop and really tightened it down. Flew several flights just around pattern no problems, flies really good. This morning decided to do a loop, when vertical at full throttle, prop and cowling came off, immediately dropped into a stall and I didn't have time to recover. Damage was not too bad, nose broke aft of motor, can probably be hot glued, but am concerned about splintered plywood in area. I recommend adding tape to cowling, now only held by tiny magnets and really testing at full throttle on bench prior to flying. You really have to tighten the prop nut down really tight.
100% quality nice plane

Just as sdvertized

Plane arrived well-packaged. The RR build is rather straightforward, just review the pictures and those instructions for the RR version. Excellent review in August 2016 Fly-RC magazine motivated me to buy. I have the regular Fun Cub too and have many flights on it. In the XL build I used a Y-harness for the ailerons and a reversing Y-harness for the flaps. I did not get the LEDs yet nor did I activate the cargo bay doors/servo. I have five (5) flights so far, using two, 3-cell 2200MaH batteries. Flew fine and good duration. On first flight I needed to trim up elevator and left aileron. I like the aluminum landing gear and rubber tires, and the tail wheel is great improvement. I will probably transport to the field with wings on as it is some effort to disconnect wings and wing servo wiring (this is not a show stopper, just personal preference).

This was a very quick build and I had no problems. Everything fit, everything worked. The instructions were pretty much a waste of time but you don't need them. One anomaly was the tail braces didn't come with the plane. I have carbon fiber rods and was going to add them but Hitec said they really weren't needed. I've flown it and had no issues without them. The plane is incredibly powerful and takes off in a few feet. Just a solid flyer. You will need mixing for flaps and elevator. I think I ended up with around 20%. For probably fifteen landings today, I didn't make one without a bounce of some sort. I'll look for some low bounce tires. The original Fun Cub was the same way for me. It's nice to have a large cub I can carry in the car all put together. It was a very windy day for the maiden but the XL did well. It has enough weight to be stable.
Ask more questions when ordering

I thought that I was buying all of the parts I would need except a receiver, battery and transmitter. I did not realize that I could have ordered a (RTF). I now have come up with a new set of questions since I have opened my FunCub XL. I need many fittings and pieces, and (two) Zacki ELAPOR 20 g, to complete my plane. I also need two 3S Lipo 3200mAh batteries and AC/DC charger. A tailwheel kit. I currently use a Spektrum DX7 (2011) 7- Channel Full Range DSM2 System. Is this adequate??? Will the poles be the same (+/-) ?? I assume Radio Control System refers to a Transmitter. I hope I have asked enough question so I can place another order, finish my plane, and get flying. I hope you can have answers to my frustrations. Hope to hear from you soon.
Quality RR Airplane

This is a very high quality foamie ! The best I've seen to date ! The plane flies well and looks great in the air. I did'nt give it 5 stars because its $ 400.00 and for that 400 you still have to buy and solder in the lights. Really ! Also the floats are an extra purchase. This is way to much money for a foamie of this size.
Lots Of Fun

It's a great plane for landing on grass. It's kinda bouncy on asphalt. Too bad the wires were not long enough to hook up the lights.
Well thought out

Great level of completion and good workmanship on the completed sections. Nice level of innovation used on bay doors and wing struts. Installing bay door servo is a challenge for large hands. All in a terrific design with all the bells and whistles!
