I am sure its giving your model a significant increase in Airspeed over the 5.5 Pitch STOCK propeller.
It is...but you lose the vertical and it seems to be less efficient. Didn't see the need in expounding as it is obvious the 14x7 is not ideal and is only an interim solution. It was what the LHS had and I knew the plane would fly on it. Like said in the post you quoted...HH is out of stock of the STOCK prop.

Oh yes, I keep forgetting this is a 80+ wing span Cub with the drag of a Cub!

This is my buddy with his Cub /and for comparison me with my Cub / after he maidened his birdie....
Telling the truth,I've never seen easier,uneventful maidenflight-although I"ve flown more than 80 modells so far-this is one very nice forgiving machine.
I'm also flirting with the idea of buying one.....Maybe for christmas

Too bad the pnp was only 20.00 less than the bnf. There are quite a few pnp in stock. But if u wait for the bnf u get an 80.00 rx for 20.00 more. Trying to figure that one out.

Lowe's touch up paint $3 sample size Valspar


Lowe's touch up paints at $3 / sample size Valspar are a heck of a bargain. I have attached pictures of the sample bottles and the paint codes. The match is perfect to my eyes. Print them out and take the sheet to your neighborhood Lowe's and they should be able to create a couple of bottles for you.

Woo hooo. Just in from our float fly and the first three flights of the Carbon Cub on floats!!!! Not a perfect day with a southerly on-shore wind blowing in at 8-12 mph early and up around 12-20 midday. Water surface winds a touch less due to high trees across the inlet we fly on.

Although superlatives are getting a real workout in this thread, let me add a few more in regards to flying this great model off the water and the handling thereof:

Magnificent. Incredible. Faultless. Delightful. Tons of fun.

The water handling during takeoff and landing is among the very best I have ever enjoyed on a twin float model. Liftoff is in a very few fuse lengths at half throttle or so, and is incredibly scale like. As effortless to take off the water as it is to take off on land.

Landings are graceful arrivals. Hard to make a bad landing even in the turbulence today. AS3X does well as always at greatly reducing turbulence effects. Give it half a chance and it does a picture perfect landing nearly ever time, even in the chop today.

The factory float rigging for takeoff and landing performance seems to be perfect. I would not change a thing.

As expected, doing a cross wind float landing with this lightly loaded model might lead to the upwind wing being lifted up if you are not careful. Happened to me today, but went no further than dipping the downwind wing tip in the water. Let's be careful and not let the CC get blown over.

Yes, it hovers nicely with the floats and it will pull out and climb away from the hover. Does not quite roll as well, but it is very close. Snaps rolls just like it does with wheels. Loops are unaffected. Inverted flight is docile.

Two and a half hours since the last flight and I am still smiling.

Only slight sour note was that the water rudder servo arm started slipping again and I had no water rudder for the third flight. Looks like the arm might not be the correct one from the factory, based on the fit. Did not really need it as the on shore winds made taxiing back unneeded.

Wow. Love it.

Here is the first takeoff....more pictures and video soon!
