It really blows me away how much they have packed into such a small and inexpensive product. This really is raising the bar. Plus it looks great in flight, inverted, knife edge, etc. I hope it lives up to my expectations.

I think it's going to need a water rudder though.

Agreed on all points. Hopefully it won't be too hard to embed a tiny servo in one of the floats and waterproof it. I wonder how the linear servos will work when corrosion-xed?

Regardless, I already have a cub close to this size range, (no floats) and I will be getting the float set to experiment with for sure.

Do you reckon the floats from the Carbon Cub will be suitable for a starting point to fit a Champ?. My ever helpful local store, RCCHOPPERS, is moving further away to bigger premises by the time the CC and its options are launched, so it will be a bit of a trek to test for size,
