Hello pduncan7710,

The "chatter" you hear is the AS3X system doing it's job.
The gyros will make the controls surfaces "hunt" for center..
But with the system on and sitting perfectly still it should not make any noise, but if it does, it is still not a problem.. this system will do the same thing in the air, but it will not be chatter because while flying it will be able to reach the center that it is hunting for which translates to the stabilization the system is known for. Good Luck with your Cub and have fun..

This is completely normal. The Carbon Cub is equipped with the AS3X gyro stabilization system. This system makes constant corrections to keep an airplane stable. Any time it senses uncommanded movement it will try to correct this movement. This is the "chatter" you hear.

Hey!

After you engage the motor, the as3x system will automatically compensate whenever the plane is moved.

However, if the plane is sitting still and you still get random servo chatter, this is not AS3X. If this is the case, your microservo contacts may be dirty. To clean the servo contacts, unscrew the servo from the board and clean the metal strip underneath using a Q-tip and rubbing alchohol.

Good Luck and Happy Flying!

answer 5
The servo chatter is normal. The plane has a built-in stabilization system called AS3X technology. When the plane angle changes, the servos are going to start chattering. This is the plane trying to cancel out sudden movements. If you fly a plane without AS3X in moderate wind, it will have turbulence, like all planes do. However, since the Carbon Cub has AS3X, whenever the plane starts to rock from turbulence, the AS3X technology kicks in, and adjusts the ailerons and elevator at precise amounts to cancel out turbulence. It responds extremely fast, so turbulence hardly ever shows unless it's a massive air pocket. This way, the plane flys more smoothly, and makes it much more easy to fly in wind. Without AS3X in wind on a plane the same size, it is extremely hard to avoid crashing.

Yes, you can use the controllers that are supplied with the RTF Micros.
You will not be able to use the 5th channel flaps though because the supplied RTF radios are only 4 channel models.
You would have a much better flying experience with a full function 5 or 6 channel computer radio. You must remember that the radio can only "bind" to one rx at a time.
Be Safe
Have Fun.

the controller that comes with the ultra micros should bind to the cub but i would be worried about the range of the micro controller. you will be flying the cub a lot farther away. better of investing in a full range transmitter than wrecking an airplane.

Hey.

The short answer:
Yes, you can use the Ultra Micro controller with most of the BNF planes, and can even use flaps by pressing in on the right stick.

However, you should know that the UM controller that comes with planes like the champ or UMX Mustang only give you four or five-hundred feet of range at best. With a full- range programmable TX such as the DX6i, you'll get a LOT more range, something like half a mile, which can be well out of sight with most of the model's you'll be looking at.

The only metal shaft that I am able to identify as part of the power system on the Carbon Cub is the shaft that goes through the center of the outrunner motor. This is the shaft that the prop adapter slides over on the forward side of the motor shaft and is then attached with the three screws. This metal shaft is part of the motor, and you would need to replace the whole motor if this shaft is broken.

Ok you don't need the motor even though I already ordered it the prop goes on with a screw that comes with the long stand off part. Just looked like a metal shaft when its cut off from not being able to pull up because the elevator servo got stuck.

The prop attaches directly to the prop adapter with one screw. the prop adapter then slides over the motor shaft and attaches to the motor with 3 smaller screws. All are included with the prop adapter pack. You may want to consider ordering some new prop spinners too as I ended up shredding mine trying to pull it off to get to the screw.

The closest reference to what you are after concerns the elevator mix with flap deployment.  Page 9 of the manual includes the following:

"Flap Function Test

The flap servo is connected to channel 5 (Gear) of the receiver. The flaps should remain in the UP position for the first few flights until you are comfortable with the aircraft.

Use the Gear switch on your transmitter to move the flaps once you are ready to begin experimenting with flap control.

Tip: If you are using a computer radio to fly your UMX Carbon Cub SS, we recommend that you create a mix to compensate for pitching up tendencies when the flaps are in the down position. Enter the mix menu of your radio, and create a mix so that the Gear Channel is the master channel, and the Elevator channel is the slave. Follow the percent- ages in the table to the right for the total amount of travel.

Flap/Elevator Mix

           Flaps Up          Flaps Down

Down Elevator             0%                 40%"

I originally had 70% for aileron, elevator and rudder low rates when i first flew this plane as I didn't know what to expect. Oddly enough I actually found it to perform better and fly easier with 100% high rates. Its not the fastest maneuvering plane so the high rates actually make it easier to drive around accurately in my opinion. I also mixed 40% down elevator with the flaps to compensate for the balloon effect you get when you drop the flaps down.

HH and E-flite do NOT have any recommendations for dual rates on the UMX Carbon Cub. It's a mystery why!

Even more important is why they don't give a warning to not use much, if any exponential. Supposedly the AS3X takes care of that, but also linear servos should not need expo to make their response linear. They are already linear! With most birds out there in the hobby using expo, E-flite might have made the point that very little, to none is needed on the UMX Carbon Cub or any plane using linear servos.

It was only after 2 crashes and some research at RCGs (rcgroups.com# that I was able to determine that 100% rates are best as per the other poster, and that very little exponential #10%# is best for flying this bird.

Something else left out of the manual is that the wing struts wire tips can be adjusted if they are not the recommended 197mm and 200mm lengths. That is a RCG's #turboparker) recommendation, not E-flite's. The wire ends are threaded and can be adjusted in or out.

The best luck i have had with glue for the foam planes has been a got cold glue gun.
craft stores sell a hot glue gun with a cold setting. the cold setting just warmes the glue enough to let it flow but will not melt the foam and can be removed if repairs are needed later on

if you're asking what kind Horizon put in, its a type of silicon glue as far as i can find or tell. if your asking what type to use to replace the motor, then i would use low temp hot glue (as low temp as you can find would be good; just to be safe)
as far as finding the exact type or make of the glue that horizon uses i have had no luck finding one as "removable" as that stuff.
only kinds that work but aren't as easy to remove to replace a part.

I find that using an xacto knife is good for cutting the tape, separating one part of the fuselage from the other.

answer 3
1. Exacto (or similar) knife
2. Foam-safe CA glue
3. Clear tape
4. Double sided tape
Start by removing the wing by removing struts and carefully prying old wing off of cockpit. It should be held in place by double sided tape between the wing and the cockpit roof (which is a part of the windows.
Once you have the wing free, carefully unplug all three plugs from the receiver (flaps, left aileron, right aileron). Note there is a 'y' connecting the lights with the flaps. Unplug the 'y' from the receiver.
Now the wing should be completely free from the fuselage. There is no need to disassemble the fuselage at all.
Carefully peel or pry off the two servo covers (ailerons).
Next, carefully remove the three servos (disconnect from horns and flaps bar as well) by simply prying them up and off, or by prying and cutting carefully.
Now carefully remove the wires by slowly pulling up through the clear tape and/or by cutting the tape and pulling on the wires.
The NAV lights will not be reused, but can be kept for other projects (such as instrument panel lights on a larger model).
I would also recommend removing (carefully) the old control horns (as back ups). I actually reuse as much of the original parts as possible, saving the new for a later need.
Now lay the new wing on a flat clean surface and rebuild it backwards from how you disassembled it.
I have found the weakest area of the wing to be right where the wing and side windows meet. If you have something like a thin strip of carbon fiber, fiberglass rod or small wooden dowel, I would lay it in the groove where the wires will be taped down to add strength to your new wing. This must be a very small diameter stock. I used the extra control rods (both of them) that came with a replacement fuselage.

I hope this was helpful. Enjoy flying!!

answer 1
From the Adjust List menu, scroll down and select either Mix 1 or Mix 2 and enter it. In the menu, scroll to the left of the arrow, push the roller in. Scroll and select Gear. To the right of the arrow, select Elevator. For the U rate, you can leave this at zero since your flaps won't be going up. Enter 40% for the D (down) rate. If you want this mix to always be active, you can switch option set to On. If you want to be able to turn this mix on and off (if you possibly want to see how the plane flies without the mix active) with a switch you can assign this mix to a switch on the transmitter. You can leave Trim INH (inhibited) since you shouldn't be making any trim adjustments to the flaps.

That's generally how you would set up this Flap to Elevator mix. I haven't tried this on a Carbon Cub personally, so you may either need to reverse direction on the Up/Down rates, and you may also find that you want to increase or decrease the percentage of mix to suit your model and flying preferences.

There is a little bit of information that can be found in the manual for the DX6i regarding mixes: http://www.horizonhobby.com/pdf/DX6....

answer 3
I set my CC SS flaps up IAW the manual and it works as advertised. However if you have the switch "ON", and the 40% elevator compensation for full flaps is active, the neutral point of the elevator servo is shifted down. This means when giving full down stick, you WILL exceed 100% servo travel by a good amount.

This is NOT good for your elevator servo. After using it a few times I was not happy with the resulting pitch-up. So I disabled it. Within 1 week of disabling the MIX on my Cub my ELE servo came undone and I had to glue the servo slider back to the servo rod inside the plane where it came undone!

I'd like to give the insight into this to MartinT on the RCGs forum for the UMX Carbon Cub SS.

Since then I have set up the Flaps with the following per acex2's setup on RCGs:

1. TVL ADJ Gear -U- +100% -D- +50%
2. FLAPS Norm 0 Land 100
3. MIX1 Flap to Gear ACT
Rated -D- -100% -U- 0%
4) SW ON TRIM INH

Result:
Flap Sw - 50% flaps
Gear Sw - 75% flaps
Both - 100% flaps
Both off - 0% flaps

I am having the same pitch up using the Gear switch so I have limited my use of Flaps to the Flap switch only at 50%. If the battery is placed for a slight FWD CG, the pitch up is not a problem at slow speeds.

Yes. You can buy the ESC (board with as3x, servo plugs etc), the servos, push rods etc all separately. In fact I purchased the motor, board and servos for this plane and popped them into the champ plane I learned to fly on. Was a blast because it gave it so much more power and stability.

I could not find any video's,but if you contact Horizon Hobby they can walk you through the steps easily. I look at the manual and it is not that difficult if you take your time.

Well rusty I'm not positive there is a video on you tube but I've replaced my wing twice now because of crashes of course but its not to hard to do.just take your time with it. You'll have to open the fuselage to disconnect the wires, be sure to mark where they came from. I used a tiny bit of acrylic paint(3 colors) 1 different for each lead. Ex (red for main , blue for flaps etc. ) only marking 1 side of the lead so I know which way it goes in and which port to put it back in. Once you have the wing off, set aside fuselage and put new and old wing in front of you so you can see exactly where each piece should be placed onto new wing as you remove them from the old wing. No worries friend lights are pre-installed and just start at 1 end of the wing(left or right your choice) and only remove 1 thing at a time so you won't get confused. You will need double sided tape to use on top of fuselage where the wing goes and Once all pieces have been transferred to new wing your ready to feed wires through top of fuselage and put leads to their respective ports . Then stick your new wing to fuselage using gentle pressure . Then put fuselage back together and you should be ready to rock and roll....good luck bro and best wishes

It wouldn't be hard to make some but trying to get material light enough would be hard,
there are some videos on Youtube where people are flying off of snow with the floats, get the floats, because you can also use them for water too

Carbon cub, you will probably have more fun with it than an icon,
but if you like flying in the rain, go icon, the hatch is made so water can't get in,

Question
Does the charger have to be used with the included alligator clips?
I have the wall mounted connector that is sold by HH but for some reason it does not seem compatible with the stock charger. The standby light comes on when the charger is connected to the wall. However, I get no indication that the battery is charging (no flashing red light).

If you are not pressing the start/stop button then it will not charge. I use the same setup and it works great.

Question
Can the stock charger be used without the alligator clips?
The charger that comes with the umx carbon cub doesn't seem to work with the e-flite ac wall connector cord. When I use the cord to plug the charger in, the charger indicates that it is in standby mode. When the battery is plugged in to the charger and the start/stop button is pressed, nothing happens. i have never charged the battery before, all the equipment is brand new. How is the charger supposed to be used?

Hey.

There are currently no sailplanes that are designed for use with the UMX Carbon Cub. Horizon is going to release an ultra micro radian for the 2014 Nuremberg Air Festival, which you may be able to modify with a tow release.

I've modified my champ with a tow release, and it works very well when towing it with the carbon cub. I'll fly the cub up and another person will release the champ using the tow release.

Question
UMX Carbon Cub Ailerons move in the same direction
Suddenly my ailerons started to move in the same direction after the forth flight of the day. Have flown this thing for over a year and this just cropped up. Tried resetting all inputs on DX7, no help. Bound aircraft to another radio, same thing. All other surfaces work fine.

Hmmmm that's odd as something like that should never happen or be a transmitter issue the only way I would see that happening is is the ailerons are on separate servos & one control horn is in backwards
