    Yes it is TONS of fun! A very awesome mild 3D airplane, not to mention it's a big cub with HUGE flaps. The flaps almost stop the thing mid-air.

    I actually ordered mine a couple of hours ago, I'm pretty excited. I love my Fun Cub and this puts it on crack so I'm in!

    There aren't a really too many end user videos on flying this with gusto, but the Multiplex video sold me on it.

    I purchased the kit and look forward to getting it together in all of its 6s glory.
    I have a everything I need already except the motor which I haven't decided on yet.

    my only issue is that it doesn't seem to come with the LEDs and you can only buy the package with LEDs and controller which is about $60 + shipping from the UK to US. That's a little much, I really hope I'll be able to just pick up JUST the LEDs eventually.

    The POWER-MULTilight kit contains LED's that all use different voltages, so you can't actually just wire the LED's all together, you'll wind up frying some of the LED's and not illuminating others properly. The controller gives the proper voltages to each LED and gives it the scale appearance everybody wants. Rumor has it we'll be importing POWER-MULTilight kit sometime soon so you should see it soon :)

    So on my original fun cub I made my own circuit board with LEDs, alternating landing lights, nav, flashing strobes, fading beacon... It's almost identical to what this one has other than the beacon is on the belly rather than the tail. I almost feel cheated, because I made a custom design that none else had and it was copied... Or maybe it's just scale and that's how it's supposed to look. And they did a great job At any rate, maybe I'll make a thread on how to make your own. It wouldn't exactly be cost effective though, just cool! It would probably be brighter too. My plane is on you tube, I'll try and post a link
