Should be in about 5 weeks or so. Planes are in production and should be shipping from the factory soon.

I don't see that as a big deal, either way.
You get used to either one.

I am guessing the MA is for Matt Andren. Does the rest of the number have a meaning Matt?

BridgeInspector,

Check out the video on SAFE Select. It is up to you if you want to enable the SAFE Select or just have AS3X.

Very cool.

Horizon should have created something like this years ago.

It the only N number available in the FAA database with the MA as the last two letters that wasn't assigned to a full size aircraft.

When we moved here, your turboprop Cub was something that Ian and I both enjoyed.

How does wing attachment/removal work?

This bird seems like another must-have, but I'm thinking about storage and transport.

Two nylon screws and wing is off. It has pins in the front. Wing is two piece so it breaks down small for transport.

Thanks, Matt. I see that it's shown on p7 of the manual.

Another Q: How will this do on snow? Either with the big tires or the floats.

Very cool. I don't need it due to what's in my hangar already, but still VERY COOL.

I love how these companies continue to innovate and bring out fresh products. Keep up the good work and I hope this thing is a smash hit! No pun intended

One thing I'm still wondering about is the wing slat attachment.
From what I gather in the manual, they get glued in place.
That won't make them easy to get on and off.
