Got to love a Cub on floats.......

This is me flying Wet Wings MFC member Phil's new Hanger 9 1/4? Scale cub on 8 cells..

Phil's Hanger 9,electric 8s 1/4 scale Cub on floats (5 min 12 sec)


I think it was the third time I flew it..

Flight one was its maiden flight in a steady 8 mph wind... But on 6 cells.. It was seriously under powered and managed a take off in the full length of the lake with a landing at the opposite end of its first slow circuit.

Flight two was the same day with a strengthening wind but with lots of power from its eight cells..

And this was flight three on a very low wind day on 8 cells...
This has to be the best Cub I ever had the good fortune to fly... It is a gentle giant that loves to be flown on its rudder.... It is most pleasing that a model this size and weight has such a good nature
