Nice planes Frank. I have one of those Cubs. Have you flown it yet? If not watch the take off as it can be a little tricky. Once you get the hang of it it's no big deal. I will say something about the engine though. I got my Cub for Christmas a couple of years ago and it was the plug and play version with the Evolution 46. I couldn't ever get it to run right and neither could Horizon Hobby. They sent me a new engine because it was still under warranty. I flew the plane with the new engine twice and then sold the engine to make room for a Saito 72. If the engine ever quits in the air the plane deadsticks like nothing I have ever flown. It's very easy. I try to give you the link for the video of my Cub quitting after climb out. This thing was a deadstick machine. On the maiden flight the engine quit, even after setting on the ground and running a tank of fuel through it. I can post a link to the video after I get to work if you want, I'm on my Mac right now and having trouble getting it to load. If you ever want to install a Saito 4 stroke in it anything from the 56 to the 82 will fit in the mount.
