The Hobbyking Mini Cub is a stunning EPO (super tough foam, easily repaired) model of an aviation icon (J3 Cub), and is ideal for beginners and experienced pilots looking for something that can be easily transported, handles well, is strong and assembles quickly.
Among the included scale features are an engine, pre-wired LED navigation lights and Cub style under-carriage. Full 4 channel control means superb flying qualities are guaranteed and a steerable tailwheel offers good manners on the ground, an important consideration, especially for beginners wanting to learn on a scale taildragger. The battery hatch is accessed from the under side to get you back in the air quickly and if you use the reccomended set up, good flight times will add to the pleasure of owning and flying this model.
A full color instruction leaflet is included, as is a slowfly propeller to work with the recommended motor. You will require three 9gram servos, a 1700kv Hextronic 16g Brushless outrunner, a 10amp ESC, a 7.4v 2S1P battery and your own transmitter and receiver (Tx/Rx) to complete this model.

eigentlich ein schnes Modell. ABER
- Schwerpunktangabe der Anleitung stimmt keinesfalls
- die Lackierung ist nicht besonders abriebfest
- Verglasung ist unntiger Weise bis unter den Blitzaufkleber verklebt.
- Aufkleber auf der Tragflche lst sich dauernd
Mit einem realen Fluggewicht von 290 gr sehr schnes Flugbild. Fr Hallenflug ehr weniger geignet. Insgesamt recht stabil, also auch fr Anfnger geeignetGood quality. Converted to a carbon cub. Certainly better then eflite one @ 1/3 price.Before you buy this, check out the reviews on the global warehouse page. This little plane is difficult to fly and wont fly correctly if you use the battery box and install the recommended motor/servos/etc. It will take some fairly decent modification and even more to make it beginner friendly. I tried to set it up as the users have recommended but failed to fly it gracefully. Due to the small nature of the plane, it is unforgiving if the pilot makes a mistake.
It's cheap and you get what you pay for!
As for Hobbyking's service, the order was shipped quickly, well packaged and the cost of shipping was reasonable.
Do your homework before pulling the trigger on this purchase!O acamamento e os encaixes so perfeitos alm de ser muito resistente. S no recomendado para iniciantes pois preciso fazer adaptaes no nariz para a colocao do motor (HXT 2211 de 1700kv e 16g) e tambm o slot da bateria precisa ser alargado pois a bateria indicada no cabe. Se no fosse por estes dois pontos contra daria at para chamar de quase RTR.
The bedding and fittings are perfect and very resistant. Just is not recommended for beginners because it is necessary to make adjustments in the nose to engine placement (HXT2211 1700kv) and also the battery slot needs to be extended because the battery indicated does not fit. If not for these two points against would to call up almost RTR.Package arrived with no damaged parts.
2730-1500kv 24gm motor, 8x4 GWS prop, 10amp esc, 400mah 2s Lipo, HXT900 servos
I did not use the recommended 16gm because the 24gm motor will make the CofG perfect. Heaps of power to go vertical and aerobatics. The stock 7" prop is not balanced - dont't use it! Nose cone hole needs to be enlarged to fit 2730-1500kv motor.
This is NOT a beginner plane. It tip stalls easily on low speed turns, must keep the speed up. Magnets are heavy, take them out and just tape em. The plastic support at landing gear will break easily. EPO foam is very stiff and tough, crashed it many times, only nose bent. Excellent paint texture, put peels off when foam dents.
The above set-up can take 3s (610mah 3s Rhino fits the battery comparment. 370mah 2s maximum for nice fitting.)Flys like a peice of crap. Bought this for my son and it is so unstable to fly. I fly 90 size helicopters and 60 size acrobatic planes so i think I know how to fly.
requires an odd size battery to fit battery box with no mods. Never again
Took 2 months to arrive to australiaBought two, one yellow and one blue. With the recommended engine and Rhino 7.4V 610mAh. 3x HXT500 and a weight of 240g so they fly really well.Este e um pequena joia. Muito bem feito, bom acabamento e bastante forte para um EPS. Pequeno e muito facil de transportar sem a necessidade de desmontar. Ideal para se divertir no fim de semana na praia ou no sitio. Altamente recomendavel.Very very very poor instrutions...for begginers they say.... the begginer need instrutions for wiring, support motor....etc.
i dont recomend.
I am extremely dissatisfied with this product. to top it off, along with the order, send me a wrong invoice in name of Michael Fink whit value of 378.49USD whem mine was 69USD, highest value which created problems in customs.
Pay for quick transport only today received the item with tree passages in customs.i just think 9g servos are a bit too much for this! id put on some 4.3-5g servos,rip out thettery case,and use velcro,and maybe remove lights
