I've completed structural repairs to my L-4. The horizontal stab broke in a few spots so I need to basically re-cover it. I'm either going to cover it all with Litespan and and paint in the dull olive drab again or just get some olive drab monokote and it will be shinnier than the rest of the plane. I don't have a cowl yet but will probably try to fly it again this weekend. I still need to put the right/down thrust in the motor.

For motor I put the 35-48 from headsup rc in it. I'm running it with 3300 3s.
I also have 4s to try but need to put a UBEC in as the Hyperion Atlas ESC has a linear BEC that won't work well with 4S and 4 Servos.

The specs for the 35-48 say it's good for 70oz plane which mine is pretty close too since I opted not to put the flaps in. As I have stated before, it's a Cub not a Reno Air Racer...

I have an Emax motor that might be more appropriate for it. I'll look into swapping it out. I was going to use it on my CMP T-34 but it is only rated for 3s or 4s and I will most likely use 5s in it.

I got some EMP-style 13X8 props from RC timer to try.
