Very nice indeed.... It looks like the rudder servo control arm are "hidden" in the float and protected by a plastic cover.... No idea on release date?

FMS support said: next week!

Floats seems good but not very scale, I would like to check if ST Model/Flyzone DHC-2 Beaver floats could be adapted here also...

Watched your video, nice job.

Looking forward to this plane, 1400mm - 1500mm is my sweet spot size for single engine planes. Easy to transport and still look good in the air.

I like that this is mostly white, so it will be easy to wrap in another color;-)

Got it together. The landing gear is a step up from every other Cub I have had. I hope it holds up as well as it looks like it should.

I'm going to fly mine as it came for a while, but plan to order decals from Callie to do an L-4H. I will just simulate the greenhouse with chrome vinyl film.

I got to maiden the Cub today. Overall, I am very pleased with the way the plane flies and looks. I have to give an atta boy to FMS on the landing gear. It is very robust and handles our club's grass field with no problem.

Now to wrap it and get the floats on it;-)

It has been dark and gloomy here for several days. This evening it was calm so I took the new Cub to the field for some evening flying. Just as the sun was setting it found an opening in the clouds.

I'm not sure why there doesn't seem to be much love for this Cub. IMO it is one of the best on the market in this size.
