Overview

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 favorite 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 off the assembly line nearly every 20 minutes, and many of these beloved airplanes are still around today.
Hangar 9’s latest Plug-N-Play™ marvel is the Piper J-3 Cub 40 PNP, which is ready to fly almost right from the box using whatever radio the pilot chooses. Everything, except for a transmitter, receiver and prop, is installed at the factory, including an Evolution® .46NT engine, universal servos, extensions and control linkages. Hangar 9’s Plug-N-Play line provides the excitement of flying a classic airplane without the chore of building and gluing.

Detailed Information

Get close enough, and you might have trouble telling the Piper J-3 Cub 40 PNP apart from the full-size Cub. The authentic UltraCote scheme and expert construction results in an astoundingly realistic and attractive model that’s a lot of fun to fly.
 
The 2-piece wing and tail sections bolt and slide together easily for convenient transport and storage. No gluing is necessary.
 
The prepainted scale wing struts are constructed from airfoil-shaped aluminum to look just like the full-scale Cub’s and attach to the model using machined aluminum brackets.
 
The strong, lightweight, factory-assembled scale landing gear features simulated bungies and smooth shock absorption that makes touchdowns light as a feather.
 
The Piper J-3 Cub 40 PNP is based on a full-scale Cub owned by Pat Hartness, whose Triple Tree Aerodrome hosts the annual Joe Nall and Don Lowe Masters radio control model events.
 
Hangar 9’s famous attention to scale detail is evident in this authentic-looking fiberglass cowl, complete with a factory-painted dummy engine molded right in.
 
For the best look, the Piper J-3 Cub is covered in genuine Cub Yellow (HANU884) and Black (HANU874) Hangar 9® UltraCote®.
