AUW is just under 24 oz (23.8) with battery.
No weight was required to balance - that's a first - put battery in and secured it all the way aft and it balanced just a tick nose heavy. 3S 1300 mAh 35C.
9 x 4 Zinger wood prop. Flew pretty quick in level flight with half throttle.

Finished up the final details this afternoon. My first successful build and fly since a pair of Carl Goldberg Ladies back in the 90's

While I did not get to try the Cub with the gyros ON, a club member did let me fly his T-28 twice! Did takeoff on second flight, but did not trust myself on the landing as my arms were ready to fall off after doing weed control around the runway this morning. First time on the sticks of a warbird - I may be almost ready to maiden that P-38 by myself!

Default Oops...

Long story short:
Out with the Admiral RX600SP- in with a Spektrum AR400, maybe an AR636 later.
DX6 is on the way.
Broken battery door and landing gear repaired, prop shaft R&R next. The 9x4 wood prop was a good choice over a 9x6E.

New motor went in yesterday, finished some other minor repairs, wood prop went back on, and got it set up in DX6.
Got a flight with her this morning and had a second set of eyes and hands get her in the air as well as set up some mild expo and trim.
She left the ground at half throttle and friend did On turn in patter at altitude and says "...here ya go - fly your airplane"
Needed no trim - finished the battery and landed without incident.
Then everyone was up and coming to check it out.

Thanx, Don.
Got 2 more flights with it this morning - no help, calm air and 2 nice landings.
That olive drab hides her real good when you get below the mountains on final....but all ended well.
Many more "ooh's and aaah's" after landing such a cool little gal!
Time to call Callie...
