This was probably the most entertaining $50 I ever spent.

Hobby People Super Cub front yard flyer RTF.

Only thing I changed is a larger LiPo battery (100 mAh vs 35 mAh) for $6. The extra weight drags down the top performance a bit, but you literally only got about 1 minute of that kind of performance from the stock LiPo before it went equal/worse. Extends the flight time from ~5 min to almost 15 too. Probably the best happy medium would be about 75 mAh.

Anyhow, cheap and cheerful, proportional 3-channel controller that responds without the painful 1/8s lag of the Air hogs remotes (my previous front yard birds were a pair of Aero Aces). The remote seems to have at least as much range as you can see the plane anyway. Both my Aero Aces went into runaway mode and sailed off to lands unknown... that seems unlikely to happen with this guy.

You can fly in about a 50' square area comfortably, if not a bit snugly. 100' square is definitely roomy-feeling... especially if there's any breeze at all. I almost lost it today because I went above the tree line and caught a heavy updraft.

If you live anywhere the wind is constantly blowing, this isn't your plane.

Dog dog dogging.

Nothing like a quick dip in the stream to cool on a hot summer day.

Love this place. You can pick whatever kind of crust (even wheat) with as much of everything as you can possibly pile on. Even at the regular price it's a heck of a filling deal, but I had the sale price and it was so much food i almost felt bad for giving them so little money. Highly recommended.

The food here would be OK... if they didn't ruin everything with copious amounts of salt. The first time we ate here, I told the manager the food was almost inedible, especially the fries. I demonstrated by picking up a single fry then putting it down and wiping my hand on a napkin. A huge amount of salt from just where my fingertips touched the fry. We decided to try it again today. Big mistake. I couldn't even finish my fries, and with all the massive salt in everything I've been feeling like drinking gallons of water for the last 7 hours.

Every time I come here, I ask myself "why did i come back to this place?" Because if I keep coming back, I will become fat. It's freaking amazing.

Went for lunch with co workers. Ate half a plate of food and drank half a glass of water. In the bottom of the glass was a dead cockroach. Lost my appetite at that point and asked for my money back. They refused, I left, and they get a terrible review. Dead cockroach in my glass.

The food is good, but the whole restaurant smells like an old, wet cleaning rag and has for months now.

I called and talked to Bob. He was a nice guy, and gave me a quote for the work I wanted done, not the work someone else decided I needed (other shops I'm looking in your direction). Work happened within the agreed timeframe, no drama, muss or fuss and came out looking great for a reasonable cost. I would definitely do business here again.
