Yet another Horizon plane that I MUST have. Aerotow all the way. Horizon is keeping me broke with all these releases, but I don't mind.

Hey HH, what about a special price if you buy the Cub and the Glider together? Maybe $20 or something?

Or add in the new DX-7 tx!

I'll need an extra tx for my tow pilot.

It's always like this. The J3, the P-51, Sukhoi etc. etc.

You get used to it. Gives you time to save up.

Order from your LHS. Horizon services them before individual back orders.

I personally cannot wait for this, it'll be interesting to see how it handles the slopes out here on lake michigan, maybe sitting in my trunk full time with my weasel. Looks like a killer price a $120 with the histart included.

The only thing I wonder is what kind of time do you get out of the lipo, and how do you get a cutoff warning.

Wonder what kind of range you get on the receiver. I mean, come on, if you speck this thing out, you're what, 200 feet up?

Seriously though, range could be an issue.

Not true. For many, many months now we've been shipping dealer preorders and consumer preorders on the same day.

I'm guessing the cub's tow line would be fixed, and the sail plane as the only aircraft that does the releasing.

Pretty cool. I wish I could have one of every HH model

WOW! Lots of cool stuff coming out from Horizon Hobby. I keep telling myself to resist but I just can't. This thing is absolutely beautiful.

I can't wait to see who can slope soar on the smallest "slope". This will be super fun on the sea wall and the like.

Wing loading looks to be about 5oz, and alula is 3-4oz. That puts it in a dlg range, so it should thermal well but your still going to be able to slope an alula better, even on a smaller hill. But who really knows with this small of a plane eh, its all theory and speculation at this point.

I think Horizon should give you a price break by buying the Cub and the sailplane. More than $20, like $40 or more or at least throw in extra batteries.
