J3 Piper Cub Super Class
The J3 Piper Cub Super Class electric RC plane is the best choice for enthusiasts who are looking for a superb flyer. This model has taken electric ready to fly RC planes to a whole new level in terms of detail and flight performance. It is extremely versatile and will suit the skills of beginners and experienced pilots alike.
Like other RC planes in the market today, the J3 Piper Cub is constructed out of the highly durable EPP foam. Though it is a bit heavier than standard Sytrofoam, EPP is several time stronger and the extra weight provides for better wind penetration. This means the aircraft is more stable and the wings are less likely to bob or tip in light wind conditions. On the ground, it can tackle grass fields and rough terrain with relative ease and then take off without a hitch, thanks to the huge rubber wheels. The massive wheels also give the landing gear a soft bounce so landings are much more realistic.
Power comes from a 1200kv brushless motor which works perfectly with the 11.1 volt Lipoly battery. This set up gives the J3 enough oomph to reach a top speed of over 60mph at full throttle. However, if you’re not a speed freak or if you are a novice who wants to take it slow, the plane can also fly at around 10 mph at 1/4 throttle. Hence, the J3 Piper can be tweaked to match the skill level of its handler. As one’s flying skills progress, the plane can be flown with awesome aerobatics.
The J3 offers 4-channel proportional control: ailerons, elevator, rudder and throttle. This remarkable RC plane has been designed and built with 100% scale features including the clear molded windows, engine cowling, wing and tail struts, rubber wheel landing gear, and the aluminum tail wheel. It really looks like the life-size J-3 Piper Cub produced by Piper Aircraft between 1937 and 1947. This is great for history buffs and RC aficionados alike!
