Default beginner to rtf needing help and advice please

Hello there folks,
I am a relative newcomer to the group and radio control electric flight, I have just bought a Park Flite Super Cub R.T.F. complete with eveything needed to get you up and flying, if anyother member with more experience than me (which is in my case none as regards electric flight). I flew radio control i/c planes till about 12 years ago but have never flown since.
I would like to get back into the hobby via the electric flight route and there appears to be some pretty good deals about prices etc. If any member has experience of the above or a similar model I would appreciate any help or advice on how it flies as it comes out of the box and any other information that is relevant.
Thanks in advance, murphy.

Welcome aboard Murphy.
You just opened a Pandora's Box. The Cub is one of the most flown/modded/discussed planes ever.

First, go here and become a member. It's a wealth of info specifically for the Cub.

If you want to stay in Wattflyer try this site out.

And this guy has some good info.

That will get you started and only scratches the surface.

Yes, I see-I should have read more carefully.

Well, I think the information will be useful in the future.

Murphy, please read this thread:

That plane is not very good to re-start your RC career unless your thumbs are still pretty decent.

Sorry.

I agree, since he has previous r/c exp, might be just fine

I can tell you that flying RC is like swimming...once you learn it, you never forget it unless you get kicked in the head by a logging mule. I have been flying all gas for twenty years and nothing smaller than 5 foot wingspans. Now, I have jumped into park flying electrics and the fully proportional tiny electronics give as much or more thrill than I ever got with gas. So, I wouldn't be overly worried about getting back in with electrics.
