I still plan on getting my DX7 from them but on some of the other stuff I buy (like batts) I'm gonna have to shop on-line.

Sorry guys

Charlie. I always do what I can to help out my LHS too but with in reason. I bought my Super Cub from them because it was the same price as anywhere else but some things like batteries I get on line. I can get 3 lipos on line for what they charge for 1. I'm on a fixed income so I have to consider 'me' first and the LHS second.

You ask a ? then you get a quick response with great advice. I just wish i had more to Add.

FYI I asked about a battery charger a few back and in the battery / charger forum. It looks like the Hyperion EOS0606i is going to be the winner for me do any of you guys own this unit or someone with it Thanks again.

Happy Flying & stay dry. BILL

Either that or the cellpro 10s would be my choice.

Hey Crash. I hope you don't mind but I used that nose art on my T-28. I did change the back ground so it's not exactly the same anymore. I'd post a picture but it would get pulled too.


cvoyles. Now that's a great idea. Having RTR get some AP of you float flying a SC would be a great.

Update on SC Upgrade...

Well, a couple weeks ago, I said that I was going to upgrade my stock Super Cub. But now, I am deciding wether I should buy a whole other Super Cub, or a GWS E-Starter. Right now, I am trying to calculate the total cost each plane would be. So far, they are about the same. If I do go with the Super Cub, would you guys recommend going brushless? Or should I just going with the stock brushed motor, but with LiPo's?

I'm sure everyone has their take. Chuck who still visits here occasionally is a big fan of both planes. The Estarter already has ailerons and has a big cult following too. I asked him the same question, whether I should put ailerons on a SC or buy an Estarter to do my aileron training, he said since I am used to the Cub I should do the former. I think you can't go wrong either way.

My question to Chuck was evoked after I actually bought an Estarter when I saw how much they cost, but it was late at night and fortunately the next morning I was able to cancel it as Tower had not processed it. I didn't need one, I already am invested in the SC and it will be a fine aileron trainer. It's bigger and probably can handle our wind better. So it didn't make sense for me to have both. It seemed a better idea to invest my money in "moving up" planes rather than "moving horizontally" planes.

I have both. I learned on the cub, and I am actually happy I left it stock. Its nice to be able to take it out for the first flight, give me some warm up time. The E-starter flies totally different than the Cub. If built properly, it is much lighter, and handles differently. I think this is a plus because it gives you a feel for something different while learning ailerons.

After months and months of trying to decide the same thing I ended up buying a 2nd cub to go brushless with then in the very end I ended up just going with lipo and 10x6DD prop. I love this setup. The 2nd cub is still in the box.

My suggestion would be to go BL if you want more power. I ran a 3s lipo in my stock SC about 5 times and it really flew great but the motor was going out much faster. I tried flying it with the stock battery again and it didn't have enough power for a loop anymore and that motor had less than 75 flights on it.

I got the Elite 1500 mAh packs and love them, more power than the stock packs.

Raz is right these are the best. Better than the HZ. You don't need the upgrade.
$26 Best bang for the buck.
