    So Red and I have been building this at work for the last year and a half…Of course its one of many projects we have going on so its not an everyday all day process but a lot of time and work none the less. JJ you should like it…its a big ass Cub with a Big ass motor on the front. Its a 60% scale super cub with a SPT-15 Turbo prop engine…and yes its an actual jet engine that runs on Jet-A  😎 its still in the final stages of assembly but the plan is for maiden flight mid November. We had our first run-up of the engine yesterday….FUCKIN AWESOME! I got a short video…I need to figure out how to post it. Anyway…here are a couple pics of the “MicroCub” as we’ve nicknamed it.

    That cub is Freaking awesome! I took my son to a local RC Airstrip and he loved it. They are a lot of fun to watch!

    Is that the “Hempel” 1/2 scale cub?

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Its a Hempel 60% cub with a bunch of mods. We ordered it in our scheme to match the rest of the aircraft in our fleet. It initially had a standard  motorbox for a normal 2 stroke motor but we cut that off and had the design dept come up with a tubular mount for the turbo prop.

    yeah its pretty damn big…we had one of the engineers bring his baby in and we set her in the cockpit area for a pic, it was pretty funny.
