There was one report of maybe the brick being fried, and, definitely not countless.

Has anyone gotten coastal corrosion on an ember 2 or anything with an exposed brick and servos?

Dang...I was going to type March, but I thought April was a safer bet.
I flew helis a lot in the snow until I found fixed wing planes. First thing I learned was that crashing on the snow is a lot worst than crashing on the grass. The firm snow. Second was that in soft snow I would pack so much snow into the airframe that I'd have to come in and blow it all out with some canned air. Would be fun to land on a light coat of powder snow and watch the prop wash.

@shastamike

I gave up on canned air and bought one of these... pays for itself quickly! I bought it to blow out my Traxxas and Losi in a $5 plastic tub down in the basement after running them in the snow... powerful... and great in computers too

The air is warm too when it's been running for a bit... which helps dry things.

No. Besides - the plane has flaps. Also, flaperons will make a plane with outboard ailerons fly very poorly.

I plan on changing to the mosquito tires today... Any suggestions with getting them to stay on the cub? What about changing the tail wheel for better grass landings?

I'm using the Mossie wheels. I just reused the plastic 'keepers' from the CC & added a tiny drop of ca for good measure. I have no trouble on AstroTurf & extremely short grass. Any longer & it becomes difficult to land without nosing-over. Regarding a bush-style tail-wheel - F4U main wheels & Mossie tailwheels seem to be popular choices.

Its for a separate project using cc board. I need full length flaps. I want regarding flaps mostly and full span flaps as an option.

The port that the second aileron servo is plugged into can be switched from 'reversed channel 2' to 'channel 6' via stick-programming, so it is doable. See the brick manual for details. However, AS3X doesn't support dual-channel ailerons. The servo that's plugged into channel 6 won't get any AS3X commands, which makes most planes fly like crap.

And I bet it didn't fly very well, either!

But only at the zoo? You've never seen any of it flying through a fan?
