Flew the Burgundy UltraCub II for the first time ever, yesterday.
Hit the power, plane got light and started flying too quickly.
Flew it with and without the turtledeck.
Looks just like a little cub.
Weighed it the morning before the flight: 278.8 pounds. The legal max weight is 278.0, but we can remove a little and make it go under. It includes a parachute, so FAR 103 says: 254 + 24 = 278 max weight. Besides, we weighed it on two bathroom scales and mail scale. At least the mail scale is accurate. :-)
This is with the beefy, rumbly, reliable, good sounding, 4 stroke engine.
I have a cruise prop on, which is ridiculous.
Here's the pics:
