My solent flys like a big trainer ,it does not fly fast but slow and scale looking. It will fly as slow as your cub probly slower .It only weighs 8 pounds with batterys. All it takes is practice to fly planes but once you get the ins and outs of flying your planes last forever. joe

Too bad your not in MI, another guy here has a ultra mini plane and we were thinking of getting together by some field and flying around.

Though this plane probably needs water right?

http://www.ivansplans.com/ Ivan has desighned some of the lightest electrict planes out there for scratch builders .I finished his big solent and i bought his plans for the 600 size twin otter and the albatross both are 84 inch wing span .The plans cost around 40 or 50 bucks but they are very nice flying planes . Ivan has made a name for himself with scratch builders all over the world ,here is some of the people and ivan himself building and flying his planes. When you scroll down to get to the videos you can see ivan himself flying his solent 480. joehttp://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=710485
