The only thing I've done so far is add some Eflite Grasshopper wheels to it. They are a direct fit and look awesome on it.

Isn't this the same basic airframe as the umx Carbon Cub? I remember some thought there wasn't enough throw on the elevator. But with this plane being so much lighter, its seems to have plenty of authority.
Maybe a lighting system from the Carbon Cub?

Just wanted to confirm these are the wheels, and do they have the same axle hole diameter?
Can you post any pics with them?

Yup. those are the wheels. The rims are grey but still look good on the Sport Cub. The hole is slightly bigger than it needs to be for the axle wire but its not overly sloppy of a fit.
I'm sorry I am unable to post pictures. I know if you visit the umx Carbon Cub site and look at the attachments you can see them.

The carbon cub and sport cub have different everything. the sport cubs wing is wider front to back by about 1/2 in. and the fuelsalage is longer by 1 inch. fuelsalage is still the same width tho. and the gear is the same. Inside the board mounts different too. If i get my new camera soon ill take pics. tail feathers are bigger too
