fun cub XL
Posted by Tom on 26th Jan 2017
Multiplex makes great products.I have almost every one of their airplanes .I really like my Fun Cub.Now I am building the Fun Cub XL. I`m one of those builders that opens the box and starts putting the kit together.All of the previous Multiplex airplanes had All of the parts in the box.Not the XL though.Missing screws,washers,2 right side upper cowl fairings,and the left side completely missing.On top of that,You can`t even buy the float kit or the lighting kit for the plane yet.At least wherever Hitec products are sold online.Weekender Warehouse is the only place online I have seen this airplane for sale.Model Aviation recently did a review on the receiver ready version in the January 2017 issue.Right now as of this review I am waiting to see if the lighting kit is available and the motor I am going to use in it.
More than fun

OUTSTANDING! Great parts fit,landing gear,, quick strut release solid strong airframe, I installed a 46/55 size 460kv motor ,80 Amp ESC,
and fly on a 3300 6s,and added the working cargo doors. I am even more impressed with the
excellent flight performance. Best CUB ,I've ever owned and flew.

There are a million pieces to this kit, quite complicated build. Would get receiver ready next time but it flies great.

First impressions as just received kit this week...have built several MPX Elapor kits and the XL is similar, but bigger and more complex. Wish MPX would organize small parts (e.g., hardware) better and/or provide clearer pictures as identification is a real challenge. Should be able to sort everything out, but very time consuming. Spend the extra $$$ and get the RR version unless you're a hard core kit builder and VERY organized. Will post further thoughts as I get farther along in the build.
Fun Cubs Great Flyers

Well boxed, lots of parts. Well documented manual with a few errors. Good pictures with great detail. Waiting for the light set to complete build.
Fun Cub's Big Brother

All parts arrived undamaged and on time. All components were neatly packed and small parts were in zip-lock bags. The only modification I had to do was the motor mount. I am using a Torque brushless motor. The directions and photos were very helpful.
