The full size Carbon Cub SS is a thoroughly modern, high performance aircraft that has taken the superior design of the Piper Super Cub and reinvented it using 21st Century materials such as Carbon-Z technology and processes.
The Carbon-Z® Cub aircraft is the first to offer patented Carbon-Z strength and rigidity in a giant-scale package. This ultra-lightweight model, designed by World Aerobatic Champion Quique Somenzini, is astonishingly versatile whether the intention is to cruise gracefully or surprise scale onlookers with envelope busting aerobatics.
Helped by the AS3X™ technology built into the included Spektrum™ AR635 receiver, the pilot is able to experience agility far beyond the classic Cub form, while at the same time benefitting from enhanced stability over the original with control that’s always natural feeling, regardless of personal flying styles.
Easy to assemble, the model features extensive pre-fabrication enabling it to be flight ready in a much shorter time than normal for a model of this size. The pre-painted parts assembly quickly and easily with all of the hard work done for you, whilst the scale blue and white colour scheme complements the overall look of the model.
At the heart of the Cub is a brushless power system that has been specially developed to offer incredible muscle for unbelievable STOL performance as well as the versatility to excel as a multi-purpose aircraft. With a wingspan of 2150mm (84.6inch) the Carbon-Z Cub can easily span roles as an everyday flyer, sport aerobatic performer or as a glider tow plane and when fitted with the optional camera mount (EFL1045023) it can also competently assume the role of aerial photographer with AS3X aiding its ability to provide a stable platform.
When equipped with larger “Tundra” type tyres take off from quite rough surfaces that would otherwise keep them grounded is easily achievable, and if fitted with the optional floats pilots can enjoy flying taking off and landing back on water.
All that’s needed to fly is in the box, just to bind to DSM2™DSMX® transmitter, and add a charged 3200 mAh 22.2V 30C LiPo flight batter battery. No building is required and the model can be assembled faster than the time it takes to charge the battery.
