UMX Carbon Cub elevator mod - flight-test video

Hi everyone,

Yesterday was a perfect flying day. I spent the entire day & evening at the field. I got in plenty of stick-time on the CC with the modified elevator pushrod. It made a significant difference on my plane.

For those who are looking for more elevator authority, I highly recommend the pushrod mod. Sure, the plane could still use a bit more up-elevator - but the mod made enough difference on my airframe that I'm satisfied.

UMX Carbon Cub w/elevator mod - touch & goes, full-stall landings, figure-8s with half-flaps (12 min 10 sec)
