No, sorry Ben. Been searching for a Carbon Cub 3-view but couldn't find anything, I'll keep looking and may try writing CubCrafter's to see if they have one they'll let us use.

Roland, your English is fine! If you get the chance could you possibly take (and post) a few photos?

MaydayMayday,

Thanks for posting! Like the stiffener/firewall mounted motor and the gear tie in to the stiffener, should eliminate some of the plastic mount related vibration problems that some other MPX designs have suffered! Also would be interesting to get some dimensions and see if there's an existing articulated gear set that's properly sized, with the the gear mount it should be easy to adapt if there was one. I like the aft mounted servos just wish they were buried a little deeper.

Just messing around with paint jobs but I have to admit it's more for when I get a CZC not a fun cub XL. As you could probably guess I want neon yellow and neon green.

Here's my FC in John Deere colors...
As for the CZC, well, when you pull the decals, the foam pulls also (Type of foam EPO), so you'll have to sand and prime, it several times to get them down.

Yeah. Figures. I don't mind the extra work as long as it looks good when it's done.

It seems like the paint comes out smooth if you put a little effort in. One way or another, Its unlikely that I will have the money for a carbon cub anytime soon.

Glad we got a video and a few teaser pics this early but if you need more here's a few more captures from the video for the sake of discussion.
It looks (to me) like the wing struts are round carbon fiber tube. The gear looks pretty beefy compared to the funcub's wire gear and the rubber tires should (hopefully) be a little more paved surface friendly. I guess from the caption the "M-Frame Technology" IS the stiffener, which appears to be well engineered (wonder where that idea came from). Anyway until more trickles in ...

Now this is an exciting release.

Not too fond of the RR version (esp. with the HS-225BB which already cost me a plane! Maybe bad luck but once bitten, you know...) but will definitely consider getting the kit and giving the plane a Cubcrafters livery.... Already got the smaller UMX Carbon Cub and the PKZ Sport Cub S2 so well !

RyoOhki1701,

Let us know what you think of her (I'm sure you'll be seeing it way before we do). I just noticed multiplex-rc.de is now listing both the kit and the RR under they're products page, we must be getting closer!

They had both listed on the website the same day the video was posted on Youtube.

Last friday I was at my local hobby store (in the Netherlands) and the owner also confirmed that it would be out by the end of November.

Release date?


Anyone hear when it's going to be released here in the states? I called Tower, but they didn't have a date set - or even say they were going to sell it - but since they sell every other plane MP makes, I'll bet they will.
