But why not do it as a Super Cub, which is a better looking aircraft anyway. And flaps are correct for it.

And only real difference is the cowling.

I went for the "power set" option. I'm not familiar with Hyperion's motors and ESC's but I've heard they are good. I'll be curious to see how it performs.

So that's what the kit looks like. The radio and Lipo really put the size in perspective. The can of Budweiser however just makes me thirsty!

I would have to agree. The "15" is at the top end of its weight range and the "25" is at the low end of its rage for this plane. I would prefer more power to not enough.

I'am not sure , look'n for " scale flight " not 3D . I have a 72" electro telemaster that flies with an E-flite 25 . This plane in no way approches the size of the tele . My Tyro 150 flies on a 480 OR and it has a 55" WS . The EF 15 is good for 300 watts easy . I may be wrong but I think with the current crop of BL motors and lipo's we tend to overpower our planes . Fly them on the prop as opposed to flying them on the wing . I may be wrong , I don't know .

A full scale Cub is a plane that's flown on the wing . Not a plane that's dragged around the sky like an Extra 300 .

I am going to try the E-Flite 15 ,if I have to fly the plane instead of point it in the direction I want it to go I'll be happy

Hmmm. Goldberg Husky 400 w/ 38" wingspan. E-Flite 450BL with 3s2100 Lipo and APC 9x7E.

Naw! That's not overpowered is it?

I don't have any practical experience with the E-Flite motors. I actually read a little too quickly. I was looking at the top end for 3d flight. Actually looking at the power rating, I think you will probably be just fine with that motor. Probably similar performance to the Hyp 10e Cub with the Z2213-20 motor. I fly that, but this one looks better made. I should have kept one for myself. Maybe when the others arrive on Tuedsay!

Just an FYI , I know these were said to be shipped without the build guide. I was looking over the kit ,again , and found the standard Hyperion build guide in the decal pack .

Now that I look at the kit, I received some type of guide too.

Also, this model looks to be very well constructed.

Hyperion typically packs their products with the pictorial instructions, that you have in your box, but they also include a more extensive written build guide. That is what we are waiting for. It sometimes has differnces as well and is the more authoritative guide when differences between the two arrive. According to the distributor, we should a have waited for the guides before shipping the kits, so you guys are lucky to get them. But without the other guide, please proceed with caution. An experienced builder would most likely not have a problem, but the CG, if it is in the pictorial version may be different, so I will let you guys know of things like that and forward the build guide when it arrives.

Thanks - Chris

I agree, though I only quickly looked at the kits before shipping. My only complaint with the new kits that just came out is the quility of the box. Much easier to damage. Most of the earlier kits had better contructed boxes that would provide an extra layer of protection when shipping. Though that does not impact the quality of the kit. I'm sure it save them cost and shipping weight.

The other kits look very nice as well. The YAK 55 25e is an incredible looking kit! But that that is all I will say about that since this is a Cub thread after all.

Good stuff, I love the can of Bud in the pic. Almost as good as when people photograph their toes in the pics on for sale adds. Any word on floats?

None yet, but I am sure hoping. I think it would be a great addition.
