This updated version is now built to support electric flight without conversion.
The Piper J-3 Cub was a small, simple, light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. With tandem (fore and aft) seating, it was intended for light training but became one of the most popular and best known light aircraft of all time. For many it was the 'Model T' of the air bringing flight to a whole new generation of people.
The largest wingspan model in the Black Horse range makes a big presence at the flying field! With a 96.5in span yet only 5kg of weight ensures a really low wing loading for ultra-slow flying and STOL performance.
With scale wing struts, simulated scale undercarriage and a dummy scale engine, this big Cub needs just a 1.20 four stroke engine to power her but using her as a glider tug may need a little more.
Construction is conventional balsa/ply covered in Oracover and she dismantles into convenient size parts for transport.
