NM, that's great. Are you going to fly over the white house and drop it for a test? hahahaha Someone needs to get that idiot out of office.

I will say this, it looks "out of place" on the plane. Maybe a P-51 or a Flying Fortress would be a better choice? LOL

Are the air filled tires larger then stock? They look wider more so then taller.

Have to admit i wasn't a fan of small or foamy airplanes but now that i have about 25 flights on it its actually a pretty nice flying plane. I set it up per the book and QQ's settings and all is good. Was a bit concerned about the a3x system but its so smooth its almost unoticeable. It certainly doesnt fly like my 40% planes but at 1/20th the cost its a fun little plane. I have had no gear issues yet, tho i do admit those hard foam tires gotta go! Anyone replace them with the inflatable Du-Bro's?

Thanks! Im sure the airframe can handle a bit more weight, and to not have that hard foam sound on the ground will b well worth it!

Gens Ace 3300 batts. Was gonna go bigger mah but 9 min flights are long enough for me. The only complaint I have about the plane is the paint a slight sneeze and it will blow off the model.

I have been using 5200mah cheetah batteries and can fly 20 min and still have about 1000-1200 mah left when i charge so i certainly can use smaller batteries as well. Would offset the weight of the Dubros also. Winter has arrived here in WI so it will prob be awhile till it flys again

I understand the fragile paint, especially the painted window area. I think im gonna repaint that and include a painted frame/ouline and a door, i think a sharpie will work.

The motor went south yesterday on my Cub. I'll be calling Horizon. I have about 30 flights if that, on the plane. No way a brushless motor should fail in such short time. It sucks that I'll have to wait to get a replacement. I bet it will take a full week or more with the holidays in full swing.
