Default Need advice on a UMX Carbon Cub

I have many many hours of stick time. I had at one time 29 planes. I had to get out of the hobby a few years after a motorcycle accident. Well the time to fly again is now. I Have 2 current planed the f27c stryker and a new unflown Carbon Cub.
My question is after years of not flying (4) how much wind is to much to maiden the cub in. I FLEW THE f27 in pretty high wind yesterday. First fixed wing flight in years. But Im unfamiliar with the cub. will it do 10 to 20 mph wind and can a rusty pilot make it fly without tearing it up?

Well, the Carbon Cub has AS3X stabilization, so I think if it can move forward in the wind it can take it! I have their UMX MiG-15, also with AS3X, and I fly it when everyone is putting their big planes away due to wind! You'll be amazed.

my maiden flight with the CC was in some blustery conditions and it did well until the elevator failed mid-loop and spiral lawn dart! luckily there were electronic issues as well so Horizon sent me a new one. I would recommend less than 5kts of wind until you get used to how she lands. Have fun!

I fly mine when the glow fuel crowd hangs up their .46 powered planes due to wind!! I have as much fun with my Cub as I do any of my planes!

My avitar is Grumpy Cat saying, "Hasn't he crashed yet?"

My name is Mark and I approve this message.
