Description

The Piper J-3 Cub is one of the most recognized light aircraft in the world. The Piper aircraft company built the Cub in large numbers and was a favorite due to its simplicity, ruggedness, affordability, and great flying characteristics. The large wing enabled it to fly slow and gracefully. There are many examples still flying today and were used in every theater of war during WW2, with a distinguished history as an air ambulance, observer and was the last aircraft in air to air combat in Europe.



Our model captures the very essence of the Piper Cub, it has a solid yet lightweight framework structure built from balsa,  hardwoods and includes molded plastic cowl and windscreen. In addition, functional and authentic looking landing gear. For ease of construction, all the parts are beautifully laser cut so you can build the perfect model.  We have also included a pair of scale aircraft wheels, pre-bent and drilled aluminum wing struts, carbon tube wing spars and joiners plus a comprehensive hardware pack that includes nuts and bolts, servo horns, rods and connectors etc.The Piper J-3 Cub has been designed to use either a 42mm brushless outrunner motor with 500~600 watts of power or an equivalent gas motor, 4 standard size servos are more than adequate for the control surfaces.

 

 Overall this is a fantastic kit and due to its ease of construction, it is perfect for the seasoned builder or those with limited building experience. Once finished in an authentic covering such as the classic yellow and with the addition of scale accessories such as a pilot and instrument gauges this 1800mm or 6-foot Cub look the part and will turn many heads performing lazy aerobatics or low passes at your local flying field or RC flying club.

A beautiful kit, just great, all parts are nicely cut in good woods. Lots of accessories. BUT, one HUGE drawback: NO ASSEMBLY MANUAL. The instructions are simply non existant, and what is supplied can also be wrong... There are many unreferenced parts and even with some building experience, the assembly remains quite difficult because of slight undocumented details, which complexify everything. For example, the hardwood wing spars are just not square, even if they look so. And they fit only one way, of course. Brain juice and fit testing required! And Hobbyking does not carry spare parts. I messed up with the cowl, but no spare... Currently looking for a solution.

Purchased this model several months ago and just getting around to building it. The directions are sparse to non-existing at best, but I guess that presents a challenge and therefore not for a beginner. Have to think things through before applying glue otherwise you will make costly mistakes. Having said all of that, I'm quite impressed with the quality, so far, and having fun building it. It's more like a jig saw puzzle then your standard build. Do take advantage of the "upload files" on this models site for some building help.

Great plane... this remembers me when I was 15 !
Like the stick and lock system with white PVA glue.
One should have some experience before trying to built this bird !!!
Building instructions are just not exhaustive enough for beginners...
Seems to be a gentle Piper...but 4 s to 5 s sems to make heavy load.
I will report after first flights of this superb bird...

some ribs were curved, plans were hard to follow, had to enlarge downloaded plans up to 600% to see how things fit together. plan for wing is different shown on website than the plan in the kit. some parts did not makes sense.

Overall a good quality modern kit easy to build with interlocking parts very quickly builds into a solid model and when complete allthough not true scale it certainly looks the part additional details would help the scale appearance . This kit is ideal for a moderate builder but does not give the satisfaction of a more complex build
