    1/3 Super Cub. She Flys!

    Took advantage of the 5 degree Celsius day today with 4 kph winds to maiden my world Models Super Cub.Really flies nice and stable. Took off in about 30 feet with no flaps and gentle throttle. Kinda took me by surprise how quick it went airborne! Needed a little down elevator for the whole flight as this thing is a floater , big time. Even at damn near 36 pounds with full smoke and gas tank, she seems light as a feather.Shut the ignition off at 5 minutes in cause she wouldn't idle down to 1300 rpms in the air for some reason! Will have to check what that's all about ! Dead stick landing was just stupid- easy , with the wind in the tail wires whistling a merry tune as she slipped past me. This plane is gonna be a blast ! Sorry guys , no video yet to prove how nice the BH 100 twin works now. You'll just have to take my word for it. Next time I fly I'll have to get my son out here to do some filming!

    Re: 1/3 Super Cub. She Flys!

    No trailer for me either. Not sure how I'm going to get this thing to Florida next January without one ! Probably look at a good used fibreglass topper for my long box Silverado. Lengthwise she'll fit my box but the rudder and tail are too high to fit under my tonneau cover. Yea, probably a topper! Did too much traillering back in my Hot Rodin days! Too old and stupid to do that now!

    Oh yea. Forgot to mention: All controlled by FlySky fsi10 channel tx&rx. Total investment with radio and new mufflers at flying time= just shy of 2500 Loblaws Bags!
