Needed To Complete
You don't need anything to get your Super Cub airborne. Just charge the included battery pack while attaching the wing, vertical tail stab and landing gear, and load the AA batteries into the transmitter. Before you know it, you'll be ready to go.
Anybody can have a good time flying the new Super Cub RTF. It comes right out of the box with everything you need included...even batteries for the transmitter. The Super Cub is equipped with 3-channel control that helps provide a true-scale flying experience. Throttle, steering and pitch controls allow you to learn the basics of RC flight, safely and simply, while still having a great time flying. Meanwhile, the instantly recognizable scale Cub design makes you feel as though you're flying a full-size pleasure plane. In addition, the Super Cub comes with all of the features you expect from HobbyZone, including X-Port™ expandability. Its durable Z-Foam™ construction makes the Super Cub incredibly strong and easy to repair, and its unique trim scheme makes it look great in the sky and in your hands.
HobbyZone’s Innovative Anti-Crash Technology
The latest breakthrough in RC flight, Anti-Crash Technology (ACT) makes teaching yourself to fly easier and safer than ever before. With ACT, anyone can fly.
Here’s how it works:
Two sensors on the Super Cub, one on the top and one on the bottom of the fuselage, monitor the position of the plane in relation to the ground. When the plane is flying level, the top sensor sees the sky, while the bottom sees the ground, and they tell the onboard computer that the plane is flying correctly. If the plane enters a dive and the sensors detect that the plane’s orientation is incorrect, the system will automatically correct the control inputs and help prevent the plane from crashing, allowing you time to regain control. ACT lets you fly without worry. And once you’ve gained experience with your Super Cub, you can turn ACT off for more complete control and increased maneuverability.
Approximate Flight Time:
6 channels on 27MHz
Variable rate 1.2A DC peak with LED and 3-hour AC Delta Peak with LED
26 oz (715g)
Front landing gear (foam wheels) and steerable tail wheel
Thanks to the incorporation of pitch into the control mix, ACT can actually recover more quickly with 3 channels than it can with a 2-channel radio system. This allows new pilots to have more control, but still benefit from the safety of having ACT working to keep them from going into a spiral dive that could lead to a crash. ACT does this by working in tandem with the 3rd channel (pitch) to reduce throttle and apply up elevator.
Unlike any other plane in the HobbyZone line, the design of the Super Cub is unique. First of all, it is the first scale-looking plane in the HobbyZone line. Additionally, many new pilots want to start with a realistic-looking plane, so HobbyZone has created a plane that's the best of both worlds--good looks and ACT technology to help new pilots be successful. The larger wingspan helps the plane fly in a more stable manner, and makes the plane easy to see in the sky.
The Super Cub has a lot of physical features that make it a great plane for new pilots. It is made of Z-Foam, which is a resilient, lightweight foam that is repairable using normal CA. It helps the plane fly very true out of the box. Additionally, the Super Cub has larger control surfaces, which increase responsiveness, and it has black stripes on the bottom of the wing that help pilots keep orientation of the plane when it is in the sky. The plane also has a conventional tail design that is a first for HobbyZone. The last feature that makes the Super Cub great for new pilots is a gear-reduced motor. This gives the plane ample power for flight yet allows for longer flight times.
Smart-Trak uses time-based calculations to precisely adjust control surface travel so pilots can enjoy responsiveness without over-control. When the pilot flies a plane with Smart-Trak on at high throttle, Smart-Trak reduces control surface travel if it calculates the pilot is in danger of over-controlling the plane, which could cause it to enter a spiral dive. When the throttle is reduced, Smart-Trak increases control surface travel so pilots can enjoy superb responsiveness at slower speeds too. To recap on the detailed description of Anti-Crash Technology explained above, the optical sensors can "see" what is going on as it's happening. Therefore, ACT is a better product because it is acting in real-time to the plane's position, and Smart-Trak technology is reactionary because it is reacting to the pilot's input via the transmitter.
Both work toward avoiding a dive that could lead to a crash, but ACT is more active in achieving the goal of crash-avoidance.
Like all park flyer airplanes, the Super Cub should be flown in a large, open area that is free of trees, telephone poles, light poles, power lines, buildings, cars, and people, such as a large park or soccer fields. Additionally, it should be flown upwind, with the sun behind the pilot. This plane can be flown at an AMA-sanctioned RC flying field, but it doesn't have to be because of its size and speed. Just be sure to instruct pilots to keep it away from people and objects, and to make sure that they fly on channels that are not being used by other pilots.
