    the solite blue looks pretty dark. have you looked at parklite at horizon hobby? they have blue, deep blue, and midnight blue. of cource, they don't have a good picture representing the true color online.

    now that you mention the tire weight ratings, i think that is why i opted out of those.

    Thanks for the compliments on my snakes! A lot of people think I'm a weirdo for keeping them, but I really enjoy them a lot. Take care!

    I considered the Trexler baloon tires, but settled for some dubro light foam tires. Blue/White ought to look great! The stock J-3 tires are nice quality, but are a little on the small side for a super cub.

    :) LOL no you dont have to use it if you dont want to, I Never do :) LOL I just like the Switching BEC that they have, and the plush BEC is very strong for being a Linear BEC, but i would not push a linear bec with a 4 cell lipo, thats the time to use a seperate UBEC, Take care and Have fun, Chellie

    Hi BirdDog :) the plush turnigy ESC have a Heavy duty Linear bec in them, that I trust :), and the turnigy sentry40 amp and bigger ESC have the switching esc, which is better if using more than 3 cells, Take care, Chellie

    Turnigy Sentry 40 amp
    Cont Current: 40A
    Burst Current: 43A
    BEC Mode: Switchmode
    BEC : 5v / 3A
    Voltage: 5.6v ~ 22v
    Weight: 40g
    Size: 55x28x15mm

    Plush 40A Brushless Speed Controller
    The Plush series ESC are a very good quality controller. They have a broad range of programming features and a smooth throttle response compared to other BESCs in the same price range.
    This BESC can handle 3A continuous current which is great for larger planes with bigger servos.

    Cont Current: 40A
    Burst Current: 55A
    BEC Mode: Linear
    BEC : 5v / 3A
    Lipo Cells: 2-6
    NiMH : 5-18
    Weight: 33g
    Size: 55x28x13mm

    This is my second kit. My first was a Miss Stik Junior. I wasn't the happiest with how it flew, but I liked the building. I just figured a laser cut kit would be a little better for me; take out some of the variables of cutting and sanding EVERYTHING to size and shape.

    So the laser cutting; how easy is it to remove the pieces? Any advice for easy/proper removal?
