I know..I know..."ANOTHER Electron Eater"???

Yes, but I promise: There's Castor in the Video Pipeline.  I just found these to be a nice diversion, and have been having fun logging some cold weather flights with them.

From my Video Description:
------------------------------------------------------
First Fights of my little Carbon Cub, "Problem Child"

Finally got my Horizon Hobby's 1.3m Carbon Cub S2 flying, after a little effort.  This is my 4th plane from this company, and the first to give me a little challenge getting it in the air...thus, the tag: "Problem Child".

The plane arrived with a bent right wing...Horizon Customer Service promptly sent a new set.

THEN, no matter what I did, it would not bind with my Spektrum NX10 Transmitter.  After a couple e-mails to customer service and multiple attempts at binding, they sent me a new controller and receiver, which bound to the transmitter on the first try.

So KUDO's to Horizon's Crew in supporting their customers!!!!

The plane now has four flights logged in the cold winter air, two with it packing a GoPro around the hill.

I haven't installed flaps...YET...but the Cub will safely slow WAY down without them, so it may be a while before that happens.

Highly recommend this super-fun little Cub!!!!

Nice plane...... I have one too. I just wish I flew it more than I get to, but hopefully that will change this year when we are allowed to fly once again...... Mine was a trashed used one that had a burnt motor. Also came with a DXe-A transmitter. I tried all flight modes and either way it always handles great. As you mentioned, it slows down to literally a crawl. I even putted along slowly one time coming in for a landing and I had to try it, so I just cut the throttle and it just dropped teh remaining 12" or so right for a 3 point landing. Takeoffs are also very short and quick. As well, no ailerons installed, but I just do not feel any need for them.

Agreed..."Less is More"...and that's what has kept Mud Dabber a 3-Channel all these years.  The ailerons would be a big help with flaps installed, since the rudder would probably be blanked somewhat by putting them down.

I'm still on the fence about putting flaps on this one...maybe some cold night when I'm bored! Very Happy

Hope you get yours flying soon!

Simplicity is best, why I didn't add throttle to my Q-Tee. Took easy way out with Norvel tank mount and Big Mig .061 with venturi. Was a blast to see it really move out.
