Super Cub Night Flight
7 Attachment(s)
I love flying my Super Cub late at night! It is usually completely calm once the sun goes down... I have attached some pics of the LEDs that I use, and they really work great. I have 6 sets of them on my completely stock super cub and the weight does not affect it at all.

In the first video, I was running the camera as well as flying the plane but I hired a camera man for the 2nd video :D It is much more smooth and he got some cool moon shots, loops, and a nice landing.

I actually have 6 sets of them on there now and man that plane is lit up :-) I can't remember how much they weigh but I don't notice any difference in the way that the plane flies.

ok thanks. about how much are each of the light pods? and would you sugest the super cub for a beginer pilot like me?

I think I got them for about $8 each. It has been awhile though... I can't remember.

As far as the SuperCub being a good plane for a beginner: YES!!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!! YES!!!
The super cub was my very first plane, and I honestly feel that I could fly anything at this point. I actually have 3 super cubs now. I love them.

You may want to get it here for a better price.

#8 monboy10 Sep 24, 2008 09:15 AM

yeah it is cheaper but i think that it will still cost more because it is in us dallars and the shipping wound be more with great hobbies it comes out of alberta and i live in Saskatchewan and it is in Canadian $
