The E-flite® Clipped Wing J-3 Cub 250 ARF airplane is the perfect little scale aerobat. Charming, classic and iconic are just a few of the characteristics for which the J-3 Cub is renowned. With its wings clipped and just a few more horses inside the cowling, pilots get all the freedom the J-3 promises, plus the thrill of a more spirited flying experience. E-flite respectfully captures the Clipped Wing variant with a light weight, all-wood structure in a way that authentically preserves the distinctive outline yet delivers a fun-to-fly model that’s ideal for park environments.
This little gem of an airplane is even better when equipped with the new Spektrum™ AR6335 6-channel AS3X® Nanolite receiver because it helps counter the effects of wind and turbulence to deliver rock-solid handling. Even more satisfying is the short amount of time needed to get this charmer flight-ready, thanks to great features like the painted cowling with engine detail, streamlined wheel pants, finished wire landing gear, factory-installed tail surfaces and completely hinged control surfaces. When completed with all the recommended E-flite and Spektrum accessories, pilots will enjoy a model based on the American aviation classic made cool with good old-fashion American ingenuity.

All-wood construction adds a sense of tradition and ease of repair while modern engineering offers light weight, rigidity and torsional stiffness.. UltraCote ParkLite covering enhances the authentic scale appearance in addition to unmatched durability.
The Clipped Wing J-3 Cub 250 has an authentic scale outline with only slight deviations taken where performance and handling could be improved. The exposed cylinder heads are replicated to allow better component cooling with cleverly designed air intakes on the front of the dummy cylinders.
Dual aileron servos offer a more solid control feel and can deliver more power to the control surface. Fast and precise, the E-flite DS35 digital servo is a tiny, lightweight servo with great holding power. Because the airplane is designed around them, installation is quick and easy.
