I am going to build a second one over the winter using many of the ideas on this thread.
It's a trainer type aircraft so there are a lot of things you can't do. Yes it will loop, roll, fly inverted and some other things, but that's about it. It's more about flying low and slow, but for it to be FUN, as in a FUN cub you needs GOBS of power, well in my opinion at least
It's pretty fun to do HUUUGE loops (as big as you want them) and the power to take off in 2 inches
It's not fast and it will never be a fast plane, but the engine can be used for acceleration and vertical climb. Mine is 90% (guesstimate) as fast strait up as it is level at full throttle
