Here is the YouTube video of the Balsa USA 1/4 scale Cub on scratch built floats. This video was taken at Forest Lake in Gary, Maine by Jay Smith, father of Jay Smith, senior editor of AMA's Model Airplane magazine.

Here is the same plane flying off a grass strip with wheels in Dexter, Maine.

Ok now to answer a few questions
crash bandicoute
The cables you are seeing are scale. On the full scale cub the cable travels off the bottom of the control stick up the back side of the front strut to this pulley through the wing to the top of the aileron. Another cable from the bottom of the aileron to a pulle inside the wing. This cable travels inside the wing to an exact same setup for the other side.

Morganflyboy
I do have the cream cub back in action. Hope to make it back to Toledo. About a year ago I got married and have has to slow down a little, but getting ready to get back into the fun As with a lot of other, the funds for my hobby is down a little.

For windows I just use good old flat clear stock

Lavell,
The 160 Gemini is the ideal engine. I have a Bud Nosen 1/4 Cub but I had the Gemini 120. Turned out to be underpowered especially since it weighed 16lbs.
I am now equipping it with a Saito 180 4 stroke..

I'm in. I love Cubs. I have 6 of them. From 1/4 scale down to a Park Zone J3.
1) Goldburg 1/5 scale w/ an K&B .61
2) Goldburg 1/5 scale had a saito .56 Going electric
3) Goldburg 1/5 scale electric. Atlas 46, 80 amp ESC, 4s 3000Mah
4) Small park flyer trash can find needs work
5) 1/4 scale Bud Nosen kit. Poorly built. Needs a lot of work. It will be electric as well.
