The landing gear does like to spread out when you taxi after a landing. I just got used to it pick it up and it springs back to where it should be. If you want a long read there is a thread on RCG about landing gear mod's for the CUB.

Does the same with the floats looks like they have shocks on em.

Smart Alec......


Been a very mild year for us here so far. There's been just a trace of snow so far and a couple cold fronts through here. All the indicators were for a rough snowy season. I'm starting to wonder if it will be.


Maggie and I were looking forward to some rough weather.

Tom we have had 3 Northeasters come through up here. Glad as all heck the temps are warm enough not to have snow. Makes me wonder how bad the winter is going to be.

Gotta be careful what you wish for.


Been a little snowy and chilly here for a couple days.


Kinda reminds me of Florida in December.
