OVERVIEW

EFL3010 Piper J3 Cub 450 ARF

E-flite's superb electric powered Piper J3 Cub 450 is the perfect choice for scale and sport flyers alike.

Designed to be powered by either an E-flite Park 450 or 480 motor and a 3S 1800 – 2000 mAh battery it has more than enough performance and duration to satisfy.

The Cub is renowned for its stable flight characteristics and it is one of those models that sooner or later every flyer has to own. With the amount of built-in scale features and details this compact Cub makes a bigger statement than many other larger models.

Constructed from balsa and laser cut plywood it is finished in the traditional yellow with black lightning bolt down the fuselage side colour scheme that has become a Cub trademark. Scale features include a pre-painted fibreglass cowling with engine cylinder detail moulded in, cross-strut and dash panel detail in the cockpit, pre-cut plastic windshield and side windows for easy installation. Pre-formed and painted wire landing gear with scale Cub "doughnut" wheels and internal servos feature also for improved scale looks.

This compact model is perfect for those with access to either large indoor spaces or for pilots wanting to fly from smaller flying sites outdoors. Wherever you choose to fly the J3 Cub you won't be disappointed, it delivers full size fun time after time!

The Piper J3 Cub

The Piper J-3 Cub was the most popular commercial aircraft of the 1930's. Barely seven yards long and instantly recognizable in its yellow-and-black paint scheme, this nostalgic favourite became the foremost trainer of the era, eventually training 80% of the United States' military pilots by the end of World War II. A new Cub was rolling of the assembly line nearly every 20 minutes, and many of these beloved airplanes are still around today.
