A chinese's PA18 project----I need your sugestion.

在中国如果买一个熊飞机需要280万人民币,这显然不是不是普通人能接受的价格,不过在中国最近几年也有那么一些人在建造属于他们的小熊飞机,你的小熊飞机建造的很艰难而且速度慢的很。分享出来的照片有那么少?

I took the liberty of running that through Google translator:

If you buy a bear plane in China and need 2.8 million yuan, this is obviously not the price that ordinary people can accept. However, in China in recent years, there are some people who are building their own bear aircraft. Your bear aircraft is very difficult to build. The speed is very slow. There are so few photos shared?

I think our cubs are "bear planes."
 
This is the Sterna propeller:
I never heard of them though they do look interesting.
If I am correct they had a booth at Airventure in 2016. The workmanship visually was flawless although the hub on display just seemed to be light. The lady at the display was not real fluent in our language and I am in no way able to work in Chinese.
It is possible the hub I looked at may have been for a two stroke such as the Rotax 447 I have on one of my planes, then I would say it is ideal and a far better prop than the 3 blade wood one I have.
I do see thy list a prop for the 160 to 180 range engines so it is clear they are busy developing product.

Ya, you are right. Cub translate in Chinese means"little animal&pups", In China, some people called Supercub"little bear", but we all know that's not correct.

Hello there, I haven't updated my post for a long time for I am busy on my full-time job and life trivia. But I painted fuselage steel structure, control surface structure, landing gear, and accessories, etc in my spare time.

Danger!!! You left off the safety washers that keep the bearings from falling out of the 3” pull-ups!!

Thank you. That's a test installation. And the bearing bore is reserved for negative tolerances. I press the bearing into the housing with a press. very tight.

It's not just for a bearing that loses it's press fit. If the bearing fails and allows the center race to pull through the outer race, the pulley will depart, resulting in failure of that control system. Extremely important to install a retaining washer slightly larger than the outer diameter of the pulley to keep the pulley in place no matter how the bearing fails.

Be careful, that might be a Lycombing, the Chinese version.
Chinese Version maybe not bad, I know the manufacture of China well, they are good or excellent, the quality you get depending on how much you paid.Don't be biased.
 
im sure its the same thing. but im still wondering if we can buy a bear airplane made in washington for a 1/3 of the price also. so sageelite how much do bear airplanes cost in china?https://www.heraldnet.com/business/chinese-firm-breaks-ground-on-arlington-plane-building-plant/
Things are complicated.We consumer never get lower price even if manufacturing costs are decreased.Those capitalists will control the price if there havn't other competitors.In China,bushplane is a scarce resource in market,no other brand bushplane sell on market,the price much more expensive than in united state.As I know,factory price for CC18-180(model of topcub,only certified by CAAC) at around USD350K.
