Smooth. Powerful. This plane made me look like a pro at the field. It performs like a big plane but fits in the back seat of my truck fully assembled. The only downside is (maybe I'm just being picky) the landing gear could be a little stronger, but the big tires make up for that.
This plane is very fun. One time, my flaps bent down, causing it to crash, but I only needed a new wing servo. Since it has great Z-foam construction, and it is ready to upgrade with a bigger ESC, motor, and battery, it can go up to 55-60 mph with upgrades. It normally goes 40-45 mph, and it slows down very well without flaps. Those tundra tires are very cool and efficient. This plane is my favorite. I'm 29 and I have been flying since I was 9.
I like this plane because it is a good trainer. Since I am only 12, it has helped me a lot with flying. Though you need to know the basics of flight, it will help you get off the ground and into the air! I recommend starting with an Ultra Micro, and then moving up to that one, but all in all, it's a great trainer!
I purchased the BNF version. I wanted a simple setup Cub, as opposed to the Carbon Z Cub's build-fly-teardown routine. I was amazed at the ease of flying this in about a 4-6 knot crosswind on the maiden flight. I put three batteries through it today and had a blast. Asphalt take-offs and grass landings were no problem at all. I am very happy with this aircraft.
Overall a good plane, easy assembly and setup. I'm using flaps and mixing in down elevator and works great. I painted the cowl silver to give better directional help for me. I didn't like the tires, so changed to 4" Dave Brown which took some work as they are wider. Wish they would just throw in a flap servo too, but still a good deal for a BNF.
Had a hard time deciding on this or the HK Tundra, which costs more without a receiver. Fun flyer but hard to dial out climb with full throttle. Might add a mix for that.
