Default House of Balsa Cub

Anyone tried these Schoolyard Series kits?
Picked one up really cheap on Fleabay...postage was more than kit - NIB was sealed from factory.
Will probably reduce dihedral and add ailerons as well as some struts for looks and function. Got olive drab Hangar 9 covering and do L4 finish.
Should be a quick build and will probably just do a few flights and sell, as I need to make some room for a bigger project

This is an unbelievably easy and well cut kit. I literally pinned 2 pieces down and everything fit snugly in place and stayed put. Drop CA at the joint and let dry. It took me about 20 minutes to do this wing panel. Easier to assemble and better fit than any puzzle!
Now I did have to lay out all of the pieces and ID a couple of pieces that had fallen out of the sheet and a few damaged small tab corners, but this is a real gem.

Default Clone?

Well this Cub is about the same size as my foam HZ, so I had a brainstorm - put the same electronics in it as the HZ version! Just go to the replacement parts tab on Horizon and get what I need!
Almost anyway, servos, linkages and motor / ESC are perfect fit. I will add the Eagle L3 for simple stabilizer as it shouldn't need the AS3X/SAFE variety. I already have a Spektrum receiver that should work nicely. Will also use same motor and mount, prop and hub for the HZ model.
Trying to decide whether to sheet the wing and fuselage with 1/32. Covering will be in colors along the lines as this one.
