Sorry to hear about the stroke. Happy to hear that the Cub build has been good therapy for you though.

I've built multiples of almost every powered Mountain Models kit and thought each one flew better than the next. For all around flight performance regardless of speed this Cub is by far the best flying plane I own out of close to 40. I always thought my Tyro 150 was the touch and go king but the Cub has seriously upstaged it. Slow one wheel touch and rolls. Slow tail wheel touch and rolls. Low and slow is the way to fly this bird. The few times that I've gotten to fly her I've had a HUGE smile on my face. You're in for a real treat. The best advice I can give is to NOT overpower her. 50-75 watts would be perfect. I have almost 100 watts and NEVER use it all.

Take your time and enjoy the build. Flying her will be even better!

Joe
