In honor of my excitement over the new Boeing Dreamliner, today I sent off for a plane that was just as historically significant, but slightly more simple and affordable. A model Piper J-3 Cub. It's quarter scale and has got about an 8 foot wingspan, and mine will be built on floats so I can fly it from the river here in town. I'ts been 16 years since I built or flew an R/C plane, and I'm looking forward to getting back into it. I'm also thinking of maybe getting a real full-size kit plane, like a replica Cub one of these days. I'll wait to get a full size kit plane till the Cruiser is done, and I decide what to do about my career choice first, whether or not I will be applying to the Police Academy or something... Fred P.S.: THe picture attached is of the actual model. Like I said, mine will have pontoons instead of wheels though.
