I got a few guys over at RC Groups looking up some dimensions and weights for me while I do some detail work.

That is what was so appealing about this model. People where modifying their Easy Cubs with huge flaps and bigger tires so they can use it on ruff ground. It caught on and Multiplexer released the Fun Cub all tweaked out.

Got a good scan of the wing root. Now I can re do the first test wings.

Mapping is mostly finished. I should receive some pictures of the actual decal sheets in e-Mail shortly. when I get those Iíll do some final tweaking of the Map so the pictures will be it's texture and she should be done.

OK I got some great pics of the MP FC Decals sheets. Man it is nice to get support from other users when making these models.

A guy from the RC groups taped the sheets to his glass sliding door and photographed them. I have to do some color and contrast adjustment but this is a great help.

Funny thing is chatting with the guy, it turns out I knew him from the time we both served in the AF. Small world.

Finished yet?

Hi Terry,

Did you manage to finish the FunCub? I'd love to try it out / be a beta tester.

If I can help in any way, please let me know (as I live in Germany)

All the best,
Otto

Just stumbled on to this thread... The FunCub is my favorite model of all the birds in the fixed wing side of my fleet. Reading the thread - the modeling is amazing. Those of us who fly the FunCub are always looking for bigger tires to put on it. It is the best production bush r/c airplane available. When you drop those barndoor flaps on final approach it really slows down. Here's another hoot - takes a little practice - but full flaps on take-off - hold lots of down elevator - point it into the wind and I swear it will roll a foot or two and go straight up like it is on an elevator. Nose down is the trick - otherwise it just pops over on its back. I Can't wait to fly this one in RF.

Its pretty nifty on floats - but it is a riot on the big ole tundra tires.

You still need beta testers? I am available and eager!!!!!!

That's a pity as the WIP looks really good. It seems a shame to let all the work be for nothing; especially when lots of folks would love to use it...

What programs do you need for all this?
Really need the 3ds $3000. plus program?
I do a lot of FSDS (Flight Sim Design Studio)
and export and fly in MS.
Thanks
