Virtually the second this plane was announced, I jumped on the pre-order list! Big bush plane - yes please! Being from Pacific Northwest, I’m very partial to bush planes and have thoroughly enjoyed the Hangar 9 1/4 scale P/A-18 Super Cub (both gas & EP), Hangar 9 DHC-2 Beaver (gas & EP) and the 1/5 scale Carbon Cub (gas).

Most of the build list went together quickly and includes:

- Servo (aileron/Elev/Flaps): Savox 1258TG
- Taildragger RC servo extensions
- Rudder: Hitec HS-7956HR
- Rudder: Savox 1231SG
- LED system: Electrodynamics (Nav/anti-collision, wig/wag landing, beacon)
- IFlytalies instrument panel
- PR Bushwheel struts
- PR Bushwheel 8.75” (222mm) Tundra
- Air Top 200mm (7.87”) Tundra - Summer tires
- Jeti Duplex R10 Rex Assist
- Jeti Duplex Dual Mag Switch
- Jeti Central box 200
- (2) Jeti Duplex EX R3/RSW 2.4GHz Receiver
- Jeti Duplex EX R3 REX 900 MHz Receiver
- Jeti Duplex R7 Rex Assist

The hard part was power selection. Spent the better part of 2 months going back & forth between short list:

1. Saito FG-61TS
2. EME 70 twin w/auto-start
3. 12S EP setup

Finally pulled the trigger on the Saito...beautiful engine although twice the price of the 2-stroke gas and EP. Should sound more scale which is important to me :-)

Now that the engine is sorted, added a few things to the list

- RotoFlow - 16 ounce
- Tech-Aero Ignition BEC
- JC Super XCub prop

Let the build begin!
