Default E-Flite J-3 Cub with Saito .30

I got this flying a few months ago. It has a remote glow starter and a remote filler where the fuel cap is on the full size plane. It required some hacking on the firewall, motormount and cowl to get the engine to fit.. It weighs 3.5lbs and flies great.The .30 isa perfect fit for it, plenty of power for aerobatics but won't quite hold a hover.

(I tried to upload multiple pics but the multi-file uploader keeps crashing with both Firefox and IE.)

Thanks.    I want some and I would if they weren't $100.   $45 is about my buying price for the ready mades that bolt on.

Invertedflyby: Nice conversion! I have the E-Flite Cub with the E-Flite 25 outrunner on it, but the Saito 30 sure would be real nice...I have one in the box just waiting. What beefing up of the fuse did you do due to vibrations? Thanks!
