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

    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.

    Pretty “badass”! Going to fly good.

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

    I’m pretty sure this RC thread broke my internet yesterday!  😉  😉  😉   Good job Justin!   There is a commonality between vw’s and rc’s and guys who wear Vans…. 😉

    That 60% is badass! Are you going to be able to do some stunt flying with that?

    Hahahahaha! Well…it would be fully capable but I’m not too sure our employer would appreciate us “playing” with it. It’s a purpose built aircraft and unfortunately for us, aerobatics aren’t the purpose.

    all RC airplanes have an expiration date…hopefully you get to enjoy them for a while before you pile them in.  😆

    At what point does it go from an RC airplane to an unmanned airplane? That thing was huge!
