1 First flights of the year on 4/24/2018, 7:34 am


Howdy everyone! Went out to the field last Saturday afternoon. Weather was nice and calm and the field was good and wet. Ended up getting my feet a little wet, but the flying was AWESOME. I had a little too much fun taking videos with my camera in my Cub. All I can say is the that the Cub is so much fun to fly, I can't trust myself to take a quick short flight (I should have put a little more gas in it). You'll see what I mean at the end of the video. I got lucky. affraid  affraid  affraid

Kind of a rough landing. Is it ok?

Ya a little. I ran out of airspeed. I was glad that I didn't hit the trees. Luckily the only thing I broke was the prop

That was very cool almost real sorry about the swamp landing.

It migh not have gone over if the prop wouldn't have hit the ground. I was going for the real bush plane experience Smile Smile Smile

Excellent Rob- just what we needed to shake off winter doldrums cheers cheers cheers

Man there is nothing like a Cub bounce bounce bounce at about 2:00  when you came back on the throttle and went "Cub-ing" it was great.

Little later on at about 3:18 with the GoPro looking starboard I was watching the strut hairpins spinning affraid affraid affraid it is amazing how vibration will manifest itself , you would expect lateral vibration but spinning... just never know confused confused confused

Loved the "surprise landing" , looked like most of mine Sad Sad Sad

Great job, thanks for posting.
