The Mud Bug was my first build and second-ever plane. It's easy to fly in stock form and an absolute blast in super modified brushless mode. I've hung micro cameras off it, flown it in nasty gusts, and generally beat the snot out of it. The great thing is that it's easy to fix with a little balsa, ply, and CA if immovable objects happen to jump in front of you. Long story short, it's way more capable than micro foamies. Highly recommended.

Bill, Just wanted to let you know your mudbug actually went from building bench to flight. All I had to do was check the CG and away she went, Fantastic Plane!! ... I love this plane so much I am purchasing 2 more to replace the dead one, Again Fantastic plane!

William, just to let you know that my order arrived safely down-under yesterday. Was most impressed by the care taken in packing - thanks. Was even more impressed by the quality of the MudBug kit. Balsa and Laser cutting can't be faulted. With those Trexler wheels it's a blast from the past.
NoFlyZone on RCGroups
This little MudBug, with those fat balloon Trexler wheels is just too much! The kit went together like a jigsaw puzzle, and it flies as good as it looks!
