    that would work! i emailed World about getting a pre-production Porter but that Cub-looking plane would work just as well and I could probably put my BME-102 in it with a little beefing up around the firewall. I've never purchased anything from World Models, are they any good? I saw a 1/3 scale Clipped Wing Cub at Joe Nall that seemed pretty nice.

    Does anyone have a contact at Airborne Models out in Livermore, California??

    My brother has the 1/3 clipped wing in blue. Absolutely flies stellar. There are some wing fastening mods that make it assemble easier and the landing gear needs a tack weld, other than that and cheesy covering they are awesome.

    Oh, and when you unbox it, take the wheels they provide and throw them in the trash. The fill valves dont work and if they did, they probably wouldnt hold air.

    Dave Sullivan, I couldn't remember his name, he had his at Nall this past year, he was hovering and flying the wheels along the surface of the lake, it looked great and he was obviously having fun with it.

    i saw @SupaTim 's video, another way to have a good time with a Cub!

    i've got my own idea but i've got to come up with the right airframe to get it going. ;)

    Dave has the massive 11 inch PR Bushwheels on his. I would like to get those for the pilatus if I get one.
