The Super Cub is Only a Memory
Well, the day finally came: My Super Cub’s last flight. After strapping a co-workers shock resistant camera to the fuselage, I took off for some aerial video. Unfortunately, a rubber band broke during flight, causing the wing to shift around. One thing led to another, and the plane ended up in a cork-screw spiral of death straight into the ground. Here’s the post-mortum video:
Just for the record, the Cub was running a new Tower Pro Brushless 2908-10 motor with 8-cell Elite 1500mah NiMH battery pack with a Spektrum DX6 radio and S75 servos for rudder, elevator, and ailerons. What a great plane! Here’s a fly-by with this setup:
My next plane will probably be a GWS Formosa.
Rest in peace Super Cub.
