Great value. The plane went together without problems. Its one of the first artf's i've built that did not require trimming the tail seat to make it square - it is a surprisngly accurately built model. I fitted an old Zenoah 23 mag, and put the battery pack in the tail - balance was spot on. It flies great. I fly from rough ground and fitted tundra like tyres. It practically comes to a standstill for landing approaches even with the heavy Zenoah - I'm very happy!I have bought one of these, and just love it.. its sold as an electric airplane, but it comes with a fuel tank and motor mounts for a nitro motor. I installed an ASP 91 four stroke and it seem to handle it quite well. Not much in the way of build instructions, but the hardware included was of good quality and if you have built an ARF model before, you will have no trouble.

The hardware is great and comes with everything. I got a RCG 15cc engine for this which will pull it around nicely. The thing is massive! Comes with .60-.91 size engine mount and a nice size fuel tank. As always, a great price on hobbyking! Highly recommend! Thanks HK!!just wrote a long reveiw with regards to the elevator /tailplane failure i had with mine but it logged me out befor i could post the short is that there is a swaffed joint half way along the leading edge of the tail plain that will crack under normal flying loads it has No BACKING SUPPORT BEHIND IT and is only about 5mm section at the highest load piont and is made of SOFT balsa
do your self a favor stripp the top covering off (its plain white) so easy to replave and put some supports behind the joint IF YOU DONT DO THIS IT WILL FAIL you have been warned other than that its a fabioules aircrafti have just finished building this lovely bird and found some very minor issues while the hardware is of reasonable quality i found the ball links had very little adjustments so i changed them to metal clevis i have fitted a super tiger 75 2st to mine and i have strengthed up the front firewall with a gusset and a diagonal brace from the canopy former to the fire wall i did this as there are four cut outs in the side for switches why you need four i dont know anyway with my set up the cg came out as spec and dry weight is 3.45 kgs which is great for a model of this size you will need some long servo extenstion and i painted all the inside of the cabin area matt black before i fitted the windows as it tends to make all the diagonal bracing disapear maiden is planed for tomorrow
This is a beatiful plane. It flies very slow, even without flaps, and "stall" is an unknown word for this model.
I'm using this motor Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 5055-430kv, a wood propeller 17x8, 3300 mAh 6S battery. At full throttle I measure 1.500 W and I have 1:1 thrust ratio!
It takes some hours to build it, but nothing really difficult, even with the poor manual provided by the manufacturer.
What else can I say? Oh yes, the landing is extremly easy.
Just one minor flaw: the wood triangles does not fit the landing gear. The landing gear seems different form what I see on the manual, so I think it is a new one.This plane is great, buy one!! It was my first build and I'm very happy with it. I'm running the G60 and a Turnigy 5S 400mah in it. To obtain proper COG I had to mount the beast of a battery in the cockpit and add 4-5OZ of lead against the firewall.
Impressed with the quality of the preinstalled parts such as fuselage, wings, tail, etc. If you're looking for a big plane at a small cost, this is the one for you.
Let me know if you have any questions.i got this plane and had it going in 1 day with rcg 26cc in it so simple to build big wheels all round and u have a great plane love it flys like a dreamgot this plane and had it going in 1 day so simple to put together i have rcg 26cc in it and it loves it only about 100 grams of counter weight needed bigger wheels all round and u have one really nice plane for the money love itSuper Cub EP 80in ARF from the USA Warehouse.
PRODUCT ID: SuperCub_GP
My Super Cub was built from laser cut ply and balsa, covered with a very good covering. For an ARF I found it comes 95pcnt finished. Just attach the wings and include your own Motor. Speed control, Servos. All hardware is included.
In my opinion this is the BEST ARF I have purchased and the price is very low for the overall quality.
I installed the Suggested Motor: Turnigy G60/300KV size for low RPM and use the Suggested Prop: 15X10 @ 23 Amp 470-Watt with a 5 Cell 5000Mhr flight battery. Also works the best with 14x8, 14X10 @ 22Amp 425Watts, 15X8 @ 18.5Amps 375Watt, or 16x10 propellers.
I fly FPV with a camera onboard, takeoff, fly, and land, all with the Pilots View from the Air Craft. The weight of the Flight Ready Piper is 11.2 Lbs with all my FPV gear.
