Thanks Capt'n. It was fun. It handles wind like a real winner 😄

I flew 3 batteries through the super cub yesterday morning in about 5 mph wind. I let my parachute guy make 4 jumps. First jump I caught him before he hit the ground while fly'n my plane. I had to step off the runway a little and stepped in a ground hog hole and liked to break my bad knee. But I'm fine. I won't be try'n that again. Second jump the chute got hung up in the launcher and had to set her down in the field into the wind. whew! I didn't pack his chute right. Third jump parachute guy landed on my narrow runway. Forth jump he landed off the runway. Had a lot of fun fly'n this plane. Flew 2 batteries through the popwing and called it a morning.

Happy fly'n Capt'n

East Bay Boys... were's the toxic pond at? I bought a set of HZ blue floats to match my 2 year old super cub. Anyone know if the receiver/rx gets wet when plane is upside down in the water? Thanks... Capt'n

I have been thinking of turning my Super Cub into a float plane too. More weight = more throttle = lower flight time, but doing the pond thing looks like a lot of fun 😀

Super Cubs work great with floats. The only issue with float planes is that if you don't have a water rudder setup then you need to get good with the planes rudder and throttle to be able to make course corrections. I know, I've been wading in the toxic pond

Blu... What? No picture of you in the toxic pond? No rudder will be on mine, but I have big lake to turn around in. Shouldn't be a problem, if so, I can hook one up. My retrieve boat will be a 2 man blow up raft with a paddle and me in it. That ought to be a sight to behold. ha ha. Capt'n

No one wants to see me in my boxers and skinny legs Cap. Something's are better left un-seen. I like your system way better!

So I take it you don't want me to post the video eh ?
:-)

Maybe we should take a poll here on the thread.

How many want to see the video ?
Lol

Ohh man. Not those bright skinny legs...😨
This week I have flown most types of RC aircraft 😀. Going from flying wing to Super Cub is a real challenge especially if there be wind. The Blade 300X is still a great flyer.
