Part of the reason I do this hobby, is to see what limits I can push. I have the good fortune of being able to try out all different types of gear that I get in the studio – and that gives me the ability to Modify, upgrade, downgrade and try all sort of neat things. Well, this super cub is one of the products that I love. Been using the Cubby for years – and this one in the video is 5th generation for me. BUT! One of the things I have never done – was to go and land on a lake….
Now, I have driven trough this province a few times – and always wanted to stop and try throwing my plane out over the water.. and being an “eager beaver” – I wasn’t going to let this opportunity pass me by. So, I pulled over my truck – slapped in a battery, and took to the skies. I never considered that the additional wind, weight and NEW MOTOR would make the plane SO AMAZINGLY QUICK! Trying to get it to slow on approach was almost imposible without and air brake. Those pontoons make the plane soarrrrr through the air with additional speed.. and it was AWESOME to try and get it down onto the water without slapping it. Sighhhh.. I think I have to wait until the summer before I can try again on a calmer pond.. but I LOVED EVERY SECOND of the FUN!
GREAT Times with the SUPER Cub – First Water Landing!
