hmm not sure i seen it. we drove out too torbay rd. did the loop was it the pond on the right. way down at the end sort of? I was thinking out paddy pd on Tuesday. Winds are supposed to be low and warm and im off ;0)

Id like too fly her on wheels first. But CG is still on par. Seeing the batt is still the mark where the old stock batts used to be.

WHOA.... is the jet ready guys?!? Can't wait to see that thing fly!!!

And the ailerons added to the Cub, was that per the HorizonHobby mod they have out on their site?! Just curious. It doesn't look that hard to do. But you know me, I just wanna fly and not mess with anything!!

And I'm still waiting for you to add some LED strips to your RP or Cub and see some night flying up north!!!

Awe man, what a bummer! I feel for you and you are a better man than I am eastcoast!! I think I'd be crying and wailing!!! Of course I don't have your building skills so obviously it's no drama to you since you'll have her back in the air in no time!!! Looking forward to the next flight and can't wait to see it on floats!

Forgot to let you know I'm finally going to fix my micro J3 Cub. Got a new motor the other day as well as CA and accelerator. After reading about Jumpy and his Radian Pro and your suggestions I'd figure I'm ready for my first "fix" with an r/c plane. I'm thinking it can't be too hard! And I'll remember NOT to get in on my fingers!! Hopefully I'll get to work on it sometime in the next few days. In the mean time I've been having a blast with the mCX2 around the house and in the front yard, the kids love that heli!
