Default Litchfield Park. I need help learning to fly!

I just picked up a used Hobbyzone Super Cub off craigslist and I've tried flying a couple times but I couldn't seem to get the plane off the ground for more than a couple seconds. I've removed the little LVC jumper so it will accept a 3s lipo. I just need some help with setup and, well... flying! Thanks for any help at all.

I'm pretty close to the Fear Farm RC place.

You may want to contact the Arizona Model Cropdusters rc club. Someone there can help you and they are located in the Fear Farm area.

I think that I'll go to the "Spousal Avoidance Center" (workshop) for a while...

you will not go wrong joining a club. what you save in replacing crash parts will pay for the dues. I would not disconnect the lvc that will hurt the batteries, I would disconnect the act though. It made my supercub much easier to control

If it's the old RED-NiMh based SC, you DO want to pull the jumper, you DON'T want to rely on LVC anyway (it's still set too low) and you DO want to prop down to the 3S prop (9x6 HZ), a GWS 10x6, or an APCe 10x5 or you risk burning out the ESC.
Agree with joining the club and removing ACT.

If you're going to learn to fly them, you have to learn to fix them.
