Considering that the Carbon Z Cub takes after the real Cub Crafters Carbon Cub i kept the color scheme in one of the correct colors offered by Cub Crafters.

Painted with regular rattle can spray paint, and an airbrush for some of the yellow and detail work. Graphics were made by cali graphics and i think it all came out looking ok.

Had my GoPro mounted on my cub getting shots of my friends cub following behind. I managed to get some good air to air footage, hope you enjoy.

Here are some pictures of the custom engine stands I designed and made for Doug with http://www.aerogasrc.com. They made an appearance at the AMA Expo this weekend and I think they came out looking pretty good. These are just meant for display purposes but I am entertaining the idea of doing a test stand as well.

I have no idea if there would be any interest in anyone wanting a display stand like these or something similar, let me know if there is any interest.

Picked this kit up second hand unbuilt for a great deal and have been working on it off and on for the past couple weeks and I should have it out for its maiden this weekend.

Im running an 80 sized brushless, 100 amp esc, 10 amp bec, 13x10 APC prop and 6s battery.

Once I get it flying I will report back with how she flies and anything needing change.

Will have pictures later this week of the custom battery tray I made.

My new E-flite Carbon-Z Cub is quickly becoming my new favorite plane. I have always loved my Multiplex Fun Cubs, and still love flying them but the Carbon Cub is so much fun. It flies so much like a big fun cub with lots of extra power, super slow flying and large tires for taking off and landing on any surface. Here are a few videos of my Carbon-Z Cub flying, hope you enjoy them.

After the factory 3 blade prop exploded in mid flight the threaded inserts were torn out. I had to cut out the top of the fuse to get to the plastic mount, i then pulled out the plastic factory motor mount and put a piece of plywood on the backside of the plastic mount with blind nuts to bolt the motor on. In the pictures you can see what was done and the stock 3 blade was replaced with a Xoar 18x8 wooden 2 blade prop.
