Re: Mulitplex Fun Cub

I will be soon. Mine is not yet complete. As I was working on it I noticed that there was a developing discussion about motor vibration in the Funcub in the RCGroups thread on the model. Some were putting 400 and more watt motors and 13 inch props in the Funcub. Due to the way the motor mounts (to the back of a bulkhead) the prop is often something over an inch in in front of the motor on a (depending on the motor) fairly thin shaft and vibration can sometimes build to the point where the shaft breaks. I think it partly due to the motor mount not being up to that kind of stress. It may have been fine for the Easycub with it's much smaller motor but there are limits. The same problem occurred in the the AcroMaster which used the same mount. I am fiberglassing the inside of the motor mount area and shortening the motor shaft as much as possible.

I hope I won't be banned for this, but for this plane the source for information (83 pages now) is
