    Found this little rc Cub on sale and decided to get a little crafty. So I 3D printed some vortex generators and stall fences and ordered some bigger tires. I can get off the ground in about 1.5 feet! It's a fun backyard flyer now.

    Yeah, lets see the doggie pictures! And, that's pretty cool tricked out superduper cub. I used to be part of TheProfileBrotherhood. Couldn't keep a plane stock, either.

    I have one of this little Sport Cub S with an FOV camera on top. I also have a quarter scale Super Cub on 8.5” bushwheels, a quarter scale J-3, and a 1/6th scale SuperSTOL Cub. And about 10 other RC airplanes. Very cool!

    That would be my Siberian husky, Juno. She's a great dog with a silly personality.

    I thought this was going to be about buying a used ch-701, but that is definitely cheaper. Looks like a fun little bird.

    I had one of those. They don't like wind
