Gotta love the sound of a well synced twin during low passes. Saito engines coupled with electronic rpm controller.

First flight of Cub on floats. Used 1/2 flaps on take-off and landing. Need to route servo wires from floats better.

2nd test flight. Gear retracted. Gusty winds pushing the plane around during flight. Will try next flight without crosswinds to see if it will roll out straight after landing. Robart electric retracts are fragile! The plane turning and scraping wingtip is bending roll pin inside right retract.

Maiden flight. Surprised at how quick the plane wanted to climb out. Bad landing done with full flaps.

Made lipo trays like the ones used in my Sea Fury. 2 6S lipos 5000 to 8000 maH will fit. Dead weight on motor box sides removed and bolts now anchor sides of upper lipo mount

I now have about 8 very short flights on this jet. Gear is retracted and nose gear door closed. Main gear doors left off for air intake to fan. Having issues with nose pitching up when power reduced leading to interesting up-close landing view.

High speed passes using 3/4 throttle and gear up. Using 20-15 APCe prop now with 10s 45C 5000maH. This is a smooth flying airplane.

Third flight on jet done today. CG now set at 170mm. Got behind the power curve on landing approach. Need to adust esc throttle response for faster ramp-up speed.
