As a relative of the popular 1400mm J-3 Cub, the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub retains great flight characteristics while offering increased power and wingspan.

From FMS

The Piper PA-18 Super Cub is a two-seat, single-engine monoplane. It was developed from the Piper PA-11. In close to 40 years of production, over 9,000 were built. Super Cubs are commonly found in roles such as bush flying, banner towing and glider towing.

Thanks to its functional flaps, high-lift airfoil, rugged landing gear and oversized balloon tires- the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub has impressive short take-off and landing (STOL) performance, allowing it to operate from just about any terrain.

Utilizing the latest FMS hardware and design, the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub has pre-installed ball-link type pushrods, integrated servo connectors in the wing structure and can be assembled very easily using no glue at all.

For pilots wanting to get the genuine bush-plane experience, the PA-18 Super Cub can be equipped with floats.

Versatile, fun and exceptionally relaxing to fly- the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub is a great addition to any fleet!

Andy, it looks like we must be the only two flying this airplane.



I maidened mine this morning. Took two clicks of down elevator. After that it would fly hands off with no problem. It went together very quickly and everything fit perfectly. It flys really well and is more aerobatic than I had anticipated. Knife edge flight is easy. Overall, I am very happy with this airplane.

epoweredrc: The videos are on Horizon's website. I ordered mine direct from FMS. It came from China in 8 days with free shipping. I don't have a 3000 mah pack to try in mine, but it certainly looks like it would fit with no problem.
