CubCrafters XCub 60cc ARF (HAN5260)

Next Shipment TBD The 116-inch Hangar 9 XCub 60cc ARF is the first officially licensed XCub model ever made.

Splash

The XCub is the fastest, strongest, best equipped and most capable STOL airplane CubCrafters has ever built.

From Horizon

The Hangar 9 XCub 60cc ARF is an officially licensed replica of the CubCrafters marvel. Working closely with the company, factory drawings of the full-scale aircraft were used to design the model. And, like the full-scale original, our giant-scale XCub model was developed by scrutinizing every element of the platform to make the tried-and-true design better at meeting the needs of the modeler. The result is a best-of-the-best contender for the RC pilot seeking a giant-scale airplane that can do it all. And even though it’s large in size, modern conveniences and performance factors make it easy to complete, easy to handle and easy to fly with rock-solid control. Laser-cut wood construction results in a rugged airframe designed to make onlookers second guess it from the real thing. Genuine UltraCote covering provides an exterior finish that replicates the CubCrafters original in its debut trim scheme and colors. Its outline is authentic with scale and other details that are practical and realistic, including sprung gear with aluminum wheels and tundra tires, a rugged tail wheel assembly, airfoil-shaped wing struts and operational LED lighting just to name a few.

The modern design and features, plus classic lines, adventure-driven capability and performance versatility, make the XCub 60cc the ideal choice for the RC pilot wanting a giant-scale airplane with the ability to putt through the air one moment, then lay down aerobatics the next, at their favorite field or in the open tundra.

Nice lookin' rig! Horizon would do themselves a favor if they come out with a 100-120cc size of this, since the AW Carbon Cub is unobtanium and people still seem to be looking for those!

1/3.5 scale..but same weight as a 1/3 scale cub that has a lot more wing area and is a lot bigger plane. Looks pretty but a bit on the heavy side for its size if the posted weights are true..

The AW Carbon Cub looked awesome! Personally, I never bought one because of the $2,100 price tag. Hangar 9 is offering a lot of model for $899.

I want to buy one, just not going to give them $900.00 in advance with no expected delivery date. I would do a deposit, not the full amount. Hope they will be able to give some spec info. would love to know the cowl dem. a nice twin 4-stroke gas would be nice.

Well I liked it till Incas the published weights. Hoping there is some error there, otherwise this seems like one chubby cub.

Horizon doesn't charge a backorder until it is ready to ship.

August is the scheduled date for release.
