Default Hyperion's Piper Cub "25e"

Hi everyone. I put this same question in the parkflyer's forum, but want to see if anyone here has any feed back. Ok, I just bought Hyperion's Piper Cub "25e". I was wondering if anyone here has flown this plane and possibly have some feed back. Any advice, reviews, or tips would be greatly appreciated. You can view this model at the link below:

Happy Holidays everyone!!

A "BEC" or "UBEC" is an external voltage regulator. It assures that the servos and receiver do not "overload" the "internal" bec "in" the speed control.

Battery eliminator circuit i think all it is is that when you have your receiver powered by a battery and then you would need another battery for your big motor your powerplant motor so instead of having two batteries you have one and so the motor's battery is used to power the motor and receiver at the same time. Its usefull in saving weight.

I think that esc that comes with it already has an esc built into it. Although im not sure about your lipo pack though i mean that is a good sized plane. Maybe go with a 3cell lipo 11.1v and go with a really high mah rating. Oh and also heres a vid it flies pretty good.And it looks great! I might buy this later when i have more money good luck on your build.
