    Hey, is anybody interested in Electric R/C flying?
    I just got the HobbyZone Super Cub and has been flying it for three weeks now.

    I love my Super Cub. After I get really proficient I will get the Parkzone P-51 or Corsair. But this one is a blast. I'm starting to do some aerobatics. And I've only crashed it about 4 times!

    those Corsairs are tricky to fly due to the wing but I love them. I use to fly R/C back in highschool and college and it was a blast. I hope I can get back into is soon with by son. I have a few planes. the one like like the best is the Piper with a .91 four stroke. love the sound of the 4 strokes
