This version of the popular Piper J-3 Cub is in a striking new Swiss color scheme which is a must for all scale pilots. This color scheme uses a lot less paint so there is a bit of a saving in weight which further reduces the already low wing loading. The attention to detail makes it an extremely realistic model, and it comes with a nice, generous size 1400mm wingspan. Like all Cub's with its large wingspan, and stable flying characteristics it is very easy to fly, perfect for low-hour pilots and experts alike. The Swiss Cub also has a new all-metal landing gear which is virtually indestructible, this will survive the hardest of landings. Further weight saving has been achieved by the removal of the metal tail bracing wires, these have been replaced with scale-looking, easy to fit, lightweight elasticated white shock chord.

The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built from 1938 onwards by the Piper Aircraft Company. It was designed to be lightweight and simple to build, would have good low-speed handling qualities, and have great short-field performance. Primarily the Cub was a trainer and gained great popularity in this role, but later on, it became well suited for a variety of military uses such as reconnaissance, liaison, and ground control roles.

Putting the H-King Cub together is very simple with every component attached by screws, no glue is required except for some recommended reinforcement purposes. The 9g servos come pre-installed as well as the 45A ESC and powerful 3648-700KV brushless motor. The scale detail is exceptional with plastic injection molded parts used extensively throughout including the dummy engine, wing struts, molded glazing, and large “Cub” wheels. Practical features include the linked steerable tailwheel, large magnetic battery hatch, and the construction is from tough, lightweight, and easy to repair EPO foam.

The H-King Swiss J-3 Cub is a genuine scale model of a full-size J-3 Cub and is easy to fly by pilots of all abilities including beginners. It is a fantastic-looking model and its unique color scheme makes it look impressive in both the air and on the ground. The Swiss Cub is fitted with a very versatile power train, you can fly it on a 2700mAh 3S which will give you long, lazy scale flights, install a 2450mAh 3S LiHv for sport flying (this is our favorite set-up), or step up to a 2200mAh 4S for a Cub that comes alive with plenty of power for some crazy, stunt flying. All this is achieved using the same motor, ESC, and prop, nothing requires changing. When it comes to performance the choice is yours, but be rest assured, whatever power you choose you will be really pleased with the performance of the H-King Swiss J-3 Cub.

Included in the box are an FPV camera mount and a JST ESC to FPV equipment lead. This mount etc coupled with the crystal clear molded windscreen gives you the opportunity to experience HD scale FPV flying from the cockpit for the ultimate FPV experience.

swiss piper

Oct 12, 2023

I wanted this plane for a long time but it has been on backorder for such a long time that i think that hobbyking is playing a game, trying to get prepaid orders.
Never an ETA

Great flying Cub

Jun 05, 2023

This is a great value for the money. It flies fantastic & will do all basic aerobatics well. The only weak point is the landing gear, axle holes misaligned in wheels so you do not get a smooth roll. Replacing with Dubro wheels + wheel collars. Axle needs to be heavier gauge. Good comments from club flyers.

Amazing flyer

May 15, 2023

I literally flew the wings off mine on 4s after quite a few really fun flights. Best to stick to more scale flying with this one. Ripped the wing saddle completely out of the top wing.

Everything ypu need from a foam Piper Cub

Mar 07, 2023

It's cheap, decent sized, well manufactured, no major issues, flies both on 3S and 4S (I change the prop to a 11x7 when on 4S), extremely well mannered in the air. Minor issues/remarks: Glue the small wing struts in the wing slots, don't just push them in. If in warm climates maybe a couble of extra ventilation holes (outlets) would be a good idea.

J3 Cub

Dec 29, 2022

I had to have this version, just because of the fpv and the stronger landing gear, be fair, a nice looking/flying j3 cub must have a place in every hangar, I chose this one . ;o)

This plane makes my collection complete.. Iconic almost scale model of the legendary cub. Easy to assemble and fly. Fell in love with it the first time I set my eyes on it. Totally worth the money.

Good Value Flys Well But Needs Some Improvements

Jul 13, 2022

The positive - A beautiful scale looking plane. The cockpit glass windows, the paint quality, the motor is very scale looking. Handles well in the air. Flys stable on 3S battery.
Small gripe - tires are hard and bounce. Recommend changing to softer tires for smooth landings.
Negatives - Where the main wing is joined to the fuselage with two screws there is a weakness and while doing an inside loop, the wing separated from the fuselage with the foam breaking away from the screws. Lack of spare parts in the U.S. as of this writing.
Until the main wing is improved, I would not recommend loops or rolls. As a scale, easy relaxing flyer, it is perfect.

Great flyer well made recommended

May 20, 2022

This was a purchase due to discount so I went for it, and it's a great model glad I bought it on the maiden no trims were needed and it flew very well. It's a easy build and it looks great, love the metal landing gear this model would be a good second model for a new pilot it's very stable in the air, overall a good model
