I fly a 1/3 scale cub with a 91 Magnum 4-stroke. Do you want scale flight or non-scale?

Wow, a third scale cub with a 91 four stroke, that must be slow and beautiful in the air! I imagine it's pretty light for its size.

I imagine that he meant a 1/4 Cub. I've seen them fly on 91, 4 strokes. I can't imagine that a 144" Cub would do more than taxi, with that engine.

Yes, and very well, too. I had the 95 on the Hangar 9 Carbon Cub, flew great...........not overpowered.

It would work good in a Sig 1/4 scale too.

Hi!
I think it will be much too over powered ,Which is bad! A 1.20 flies a 1/4 CUB just fine ,a little aerobatic span .60 size CUB (What span ?) will be much better off with a .56-.60 four stroke. My experience comes from flying at sea level.

When Tower first marketed this kit, they paired it with an OS .70 Surpass, as a combo deal.
