Oh hell yeah! :) Looking great so far! What brand suspension gear are you using, and who's plan/kit? I recently added suspension gear to my 1/4 scale Cub and I love how well they smooth out the ground handling.

I cut it out per plans and had a friend wield it up. They are Robert W Nelitz plans. I am adding flaps to make it a Super Cub.
