    Official Eflite Carbon Cub SS Forum

    I got my Carbon Cub a few days ago. Actually it's my 2nd one, because the first one had an elevator problem, but Horizon Hobby took good care of me, and overnighted another one. This one seems to be fine. I had to glue the landing gear fairings to the wire so they wouldn't keep popping off while learning how to land it, and also glued the wheel keepers on after losing the tail wheel for a while. Never did find that one push on keeper, but thankfully there was another one inboard of the wheel still on the wire.
    I have maybe 5 flights on it so far, and it's an awesome little plane which certainly deserves it's own thread, so here we go...
    It's been real windy here lately, so my poor little Carbon Cub has had to fly in 5 to 8 mph winds so far. It's been doing really well, but I need alot of practice. For it's size and weight, it sure handles the wind good. I was afraid of scuffin up the wing tips while landing, but the AS3X does a great job of correcting for the wind on the way in. It's a quick little plane, it has tons of power. They probably planned it that way so it could break loose from the water easily while float flying. From the video's i've seen they jump right up off of the water with no problem. I already have my floats, but havn't tried them out yet.
    I moved all my control rods to the inner holes, and I think it's all about perfect now, I just wish all this crazy wind would stop. We were having 14 mph gusts last night, so I didn't even think of sending the little Cub up. I think 5 mph is about my wind limit with it, for now anyway.
    I changed my battery plug to a JST, and just ordered 2 more 180mah batts from HK/USA. I have 2 batterys for it now, and im shootin for 8, so I still have 4 to order in the near future. Im really getting into these little BNF birds. I used to fly larger planes with 4 stroke Saito's and a gas powered Giant Super Stearman, but I think this little electric stuff is more fun, alot less work, and alot less hassel.
    This Carbon Cub is the latest addition to my fleet of electric planes, and I think it's going to be my favorite. How bout you guys ?
    Have you ever seen a better looking, more scale, fun to fly foamie ? I sure havn't. I think the Carbon Cub is a real winner

    Beautiful pics of yours, great job ! I got 2 six minute flights in on mine tonight. Wind was down to about 3 or 4 mph. Im blown away how nice they fly. I think it's my favorite plane now.
    I took a couple of pics tonight also. Love your deck level shots

    I thought that I had a binding problem with mine, but it turns out that the transmitter must be on for at least five seconds before you plug the airplane battery in.

    The little plane flies great. I have flown is winds up to 14 mph so far. This plane has more power an agility than the larger white foam Cub that we all like.

    I've been flying mine alot, but still havn't tried it off water yet. I havn't had any trouble with it whatsoever, and I must have at least 50 flights on it now. Eflite sure did a fine job when they made these little planes. Truely amazing...

    My Carbon Cub started having problems with the elevator. It would suddenly loose elevator control and crash. I gave it to a friend and he's having the same luck. Now it's a scotch tape, hot glue, demolition, crash test, Carbon Cub.
