Seems like it will be a hard sell versus the HH Carbon Cub? Unless they're real price competitive?

Exactly what I was thinking.

I read somewhere that it's gonna be $438 for a PNP. Pretty steep for a foamy that needs a 6s pack and a 8 channel RX.

But it is super cool.

versus $379 at HH.

I find the Multiplex planes [generally speaking] to be a stiffer foam than its HH counterparts (e-flite, park zone, etc.). I bet it flies a bit more precise, but I'm not sure that is necessarily a good thing for a Cub.

Not sure about that--The wing on my funcub curves like a banana at the bottom of a loop.

I've been trying to fold my wing for years. It just won't break. I guess that's a good thing.

Horizon's is larger. I do love my funcub but don't find this ultra compelling at this price. Did just watch the video for Horizon's 80" T-28 and that was quite cool.

The T28 is bad to the bone. And I like my Carbon Cub, I just don't like all the space it takes up and the $90 batteries.

Hi guys
My cub absolved the maiden flight yesterday. The weather was not too friendly, however it just did it's job properly in the wind.
I've pulled a small product video on a basis to compare with the predecessor (original FunCub)
Have fun

Had 5 flights on this one with 4s and 5s, didn't like it.
Seems to be a little nose heavy. I use A40-12s 610kv on 5s 2200 graphite
