Smokin Joe I had one too with a Saito 300 4 stroke twin. Got some pics somewhere. I had my Goldberg Ultimate for 30 years and I still fly it. Put a 20cc gas motor on it. Best flying knife edge plane I ever had! 6 months ago

Finally got to test fly the Big Carbon Z Cub. A Little windy, but it needed just two clicks of right aileron. Going to be a nice easy plane to fly and real easy to see! The bigger, the better! lol - feeling happy

Knuck I got a lot of flights in on mine! I got rid of it after all the batteries went bad! It flew great! 2 years ago

I saw a bunch of rcneighborhood messages on my email. I just had to come and take a look at the site. I see Joe posted some pics of what we were doing this month with the house.

Got a flight in just before dark. Still too windy to give a good flight analysis. I need a calm day to see how good it knife edges, etc. Mabey in a month or too. This weather sucks! - feeling irritated

Smokin Joe I got one too still in the box. If it flys as good as the 3d hobby, I am going to order another one as a spare. I got 500 flights on the 3d hobby one and it is about ready for a transplant. They don't make them anymore so this might be the replacement! 3 years ago

The only way to show how small the Smith Miniplane is is to see one with a pilot in it! That is tiny! lol
