Could a UM Carbon Cub friend tell me the sizes (in centimeter if possible) of the box in which the plane is sold ? (see page 834, quote 7999, for instance)
Just to plan my luggage for my next holidays, I have to order the piece of luggage together with the plane.
Thank you friends!

Just did my first completely IFR flight this evening and WOW... I land on an uphill slope (Neighbors driveway) and it's so difficult to grease a landing without striking the prop at night.

If you have enough elevator movement and the flaps are down then you should be able to plop it down on all three wheels without causing a prop strike.

Don't the LEDs light up the ground enough for you to see how low is the airplane?

The thing is that it's a fairly respectable uphill slope- so I need to come in at a relatively steep AOA, which can be hard to properly see and account for at night. The lights did help- but the main landing light wasn't strong enough to light up the runway to a point where I could land as I could during the day.

It's +43 F with hardly a breath of a breeze, and the thick fog has finally lifted. Much of the foot-plus of snow that was sitting in yard has melted, but there's still more than enough left to cover the grass. My trusty old CC is sitting on her floats, looking like she'd rather be up there than down here. My Hyp 400 & 500 Babbelbatts are charged, and the hatcam is almost there. I believe it is time to fly! Hope I remember how. Last time I flew the CC was nearly 3 months ago...

I do notice that my CC and Beast can go way way way fast on my 5030s, do I need better throttle management or do I need to buy yak props?

My CC flies great with the Yak prop, MUCH better than stock. You do need bushwheels for the Yak prop, though. I made my own.

AP,

Definitely go with the Yak prop on the CC. But I'd stick with the 5030 on the Beast.

Got in a short flight, but +43 F is too warm for the snow. It was really sticky & the floats tended to submarine, but I managed to pull off a few takeoffs & landings without the plane ending up on her back. Uploading video now....
