Tail blade won't rotate. Why? Everything else is OK

Hi Gilmour,
It's possible that either the tail rotor is seized up or the drive linkage is bust/ come undone. Hope it's just undone!! However I have no experience in repairing this type of machine.

How do I replace the motor for the hobbyzone cub trainer? do I need to braze/solder the connections? How do I break the current connections?

there are some motor mounts offered for super cub which will fit exactly the holes on the nose of the plane just google it. There is a kit offered on ebay with esc and receiver. I believe 1000 kv would be enough for the plane especially with the floats it might need more power although the bigger propeller that comes with the floats would be sufficient. Personally I would change the motor only if necessary, although my receiver broke and I think i will change everything on the inside. hope to have answered your questions partly

Can someone tell me how to replace a broken prop for the super cub? Thanks David

Pull spinner off by placing finger tips under lower edge of spinner between where prop comes out and pulling straight off. The spinner on tight so it takes quite a bit of pressure. The plastic is quite strong so don't worry about breaking it.

I have a brand new Hobby Zone Champ RTF. For awhile, it will do fine. Then, all at once the rudder control stops working. All other parts of the plane are fine. Then a few minutes later it can be fine....

I have the same problem with my champ. Rudder loses control intermittently. If I open it and flick the gear a little it sometimes responds. Any solution yet?

Have hobbyzone firebird commander 2, new to flying. Could not get it off the ground, kept veering to right - and my friend's new, same plane, also did the same, yet veered to the left. Help

Some RTF aircraft are not quite RTF as they sometimes need trim adjustments. Also, a wing could be heavier on one side than the other as RTF models are mass produced with cheap and cheaply assembled components.

For a quick balance check, remove the prop and obtain an electrical terminal block (aka Chocolate block). You will need just the brass terminal insert with both screws.

Remove the prop and put the terminal onto the prop spindle. On the other open end of this, you need to insert a small curtain hook (ones that are used to hold up net curtain wires). Insert this into the other end. To the hook, tie a short length of nylon or cotton. Suspend the cotton from a platform such as a shelf. You need to be able to hang the aircraft without it touching the wall but it needs to be close to the wall. Once done, obtain a tape rule and measure the leading edge END of the wing. Move the tape to the other wing and make sure that the same position aligns with the same mark on the rule. If it doesn't, you need to add a minute amount of weight. About a gram, to the higher wing.

If it is fine, then remove the cotton and then tie a loop into it. Make another cotton string loop identical and hang it one plane length away. Using a small piece of sticky tape, tape the cotton to the tape and then to the extreme top of the tail fin. Loop the other cotton loop over the prop spindle, making in effect a cradle system. Again, use a tape rule to ensure that the both wings sit at exactly the same height. Add a piece of tape to the lighter wing to level it. A better way is to use nail varnish as it levels itself and prevents wing surface issues.

If both wings are okay, then it may be the tail fin rudder. It could be stuck on the right side rather than in the middle. This makes the aircraft fly to the right the faster the speed is, even taking off. Try trimming the rudder with the trim control on the transmitter or servo link.

If all else a model boat as it could be the operator....

My fuselage broke in two at the fire wall. can it be glued and if so, how?

you can use an epoxy that is just for foam purposes. But mine broke at the center under the wing. I used colored duct tape to match and it flys just fine.

The super cub will not turn off after inserting the battery

If you mean the throttle is stuck at full all the time. Bad news! All electric airplanes can be prone to feedback into the electronics. If the prop stops suddenly when you are under power, the current meant for the motor will feedback into the power mosfet and switching diode. Unfortunately when that mosfet blows, it usually fails in the full on position. Time for a new receiver or a soldering iron.
