Default Parkzone Sport Cub Unboxing, Build, and Review

Hey guys!

This is the complete unboxing, build, maiden flight, and review with bonus flight footage for the Parkzone Sport Cub S2 Parkflyer, which was modeled after the Cub Crafters Sport Cub.

I really like how this plane looks and how it flys. That made the issues I encountered during the build process not as big of a deal

Here are my flight review notes:

Cons:
- Landing gear wire is thin and LG install was a pain.
- Rudder was way out of trim and doesn't steer well in grass.
- The tail section is also difficult to install.
- The main LG wheel collar screw popped out during landing.

Pros:
- Looks great and is a great flyer.
- Nice big forgiving tundra tires.
- Lands really slow even without flaps.
- Large battery bay for flexible battery options.

The bottom line is this is a fun and easy to fly plane that you should buy if you are considering it.
