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.

Excellent Version 3

Sep 13, 2021

This version 3 was a major improvement with the landing gear which quickly became apparent with my grass park environment. The 3 or 4 cell battery option is also appreciated. I have only one word of caution when assembling the model. Be sure to sand scuff the wing strut anchors before gluing the in place. I had to glue mine a second time when they pulled loose. This was an excellent value and performs and looks the part of a J-3 Piper Cub.

Great model but still has build issues

Aug 16, 2021

A good improved version of the original classic, but with some really annoying build flaws that could be solved for just a few euros.
1) Landing gear - even in the instructions it says that you will need collets to hold the wheels on the axles properly. I can confirm that you absolutely do. Without them you risk the wheel wobbling across axle and potentially locking on the sharp angle of the formed wire. Why not just include the collets?
2) The motor does not have a backing plate to stop the prop slipping when tightening to the motor shaft. Silly error that again could be solved for a couple of euros.

Great revised model but still with build issues

Aug 16, 2021

This is a super PNP kit. On the whole the quality is good but there are still annoying niggles with the build that could be solved for just a few more euros.
1) the upgraded undercarriage is an improvement for sure, but even in the instructions it says you will need collets on the stub axle to hold the wheel against the plastic hub. I can confirm you absolutely do need them so why the heck are they not included!
2) the motor is flexible and capable of 3s or 4s courtesy of the revised ESC, but the motor has no propeller back plate to stop the prop slipping against the motor when tightening the prop to the shaft. It’s a cheap fix to get something to lock the shaft to the prop.
Hobbyking this is a lovely model but silly design errors could make for real problems with inexperienced modellers.

Awesome plane

Aug 15, 2021

This is one sweet flying Cub. Flies awesome on 3s nice and scale. On 4s it straight rips! Aerobatics with is. Look great in the air and on the ground. assembles fairly easy but in the manual it says wheel collars are optional. IMO they should be mandatory to take out the slop of the wheels on the axles. The slop is horrible without the shaft collars to hold the wheels out. I was having taxi issues with the wheels flopping around back and forth on the axles. Other than needing some shaft collars for the wheels its an awesome plane and would 100% buy another one or recommend it.
