Still MORE fun with the E-flite Carbon Z Cub!


Here's the last couple of videos I shot with my trusty Mobius camera while out flying my Carbon Z Cub....

First up is another video I shot while shooting various approaches and doing all sorts of touch-n-go's. I'm doing different kinds of approaches, from no flaps, long approach path type stuff, to using flaps and dropping her in on steep, bush style approaches to my "postage stamp" sized runway.

This really is an excellent tutorial on how to do various approaches, landings and take offs with your CZC, so anyone interested in improving their technique would do well to watch this....plus, I'm talking my way through MOST of the flight, so you'll actually get a running narrative of what I'm doing on the sticks....talk about "virtual instruction" :
Touch and go with the Carbon Z Cub 23 Feb 14 (9 min 31 sec)


This video is one I made on the spur of the moment; I realized I could quickly cover some basic tips on the Carbon Z Cub that would help out a lot of folks just getting acquainted with the model, so I went for it :
Carbon Z Cub helpful tips (4 min 16 sec)


The Mobius makes it easy, and shooting video is just too darn fun...

I really hope you enjoy the flicks...happy landings !

Now that's my kind of flying! Touch-n-gos all day long. Man, I wish you'd bring that CZC to SEFF with ya and let me fly it some! I've been drooling over these since they were first announced. I've been trying to avoid watching videos of them and then you go and post something like this. Thanks, bud...way to get me wanting one again!

Six weeks to SEFF!

HAH !

I'm here for YOU, Andy ! I'll be an enabler and help to lure you back to the CZC...

I wish I could bring that beast out, but I'm driving, so I'm limited on what I can bring. Looks like it'll be one of my PZ Wildcats, my Sky Angel Rare Bear, and whatever other smaller model strikes my fancy as I have a couple more I could toss in the back...

If you've been on the fence about this model, I say go for it! Provided, that is, if storage and transportation isn't an issue. This plane is awesome, and really does it all, from nice and easy touch-n-go's to sport/scale aerobatics, to camera hack, it's an extremely versatile platform....

Looking forward to meeting you down there; I'll shoot you a PM right before I leave here. Be advised, I'll be there from the 6th to the 10th....I have to leave before the big weekend IOT make it back here in time for the next rotation in the box....

Happy landings,
John

I'd find a way to cram that CZC in the car. Trust me, the grass at SEFF is so nice, you'll be kicking yourself of you don't bring your touch-n-go machine. It's THAT nice.

!

No Andy, sorry ! I'm bringing one of my Wildcats (my original one...) and it'll be the one I'll fly at SEFF. Besides, if I stuff the CZC in the car, it really wouldn't leave room for much else !

I'm sure there'll be PLENTY of CZCs there anyway for you to drool over....

Speaking of that, I'm gonna PM you real soon to get your cell# so we can link-up out there. Are you planning on being there the whole week, or????

I'll be there by noon on Monday. I won't be hard to find. Look for the Auburn windsock on my EZ-up.
