Every HobbyZone® aircraft we offer features industry-leading design and technology developed by experts to keep you in control and learning at your own pace so you can turn your dreams of flight into a reality! We are committed to engineering aircraft that you can learn to fly with successfully even if you've never flown RC before.
The HobbyZone® Carbon Cub S 2 1.3m Chandra Patey Limited Edition RTF is based on the best-selling Carbon Cub S 2 and is inspired by Chandra Patey's, wife of Mike Patey, full-scale CubCrafters Carbon Cub. Chandra Patey became a licensed pilot after five months of secretly training in 2003. With no idea that his wife had even considered flying, her husband was shocked as she landed and rolled right in front of him in their Cessna 172 for the first time. Her initial intent for learning to fly was to be a capable emergency backup to her husband, but she quickly discovered her own joy flying from the pilot seat. Chandra soon found the perfect plane for herself: a beautiful CubCrafters Carbon Cub SS. The Carbon Cub was built for low and slow flying, perfect for backcountry flights and landing off-field. As she says about flying the Carbon Cub, "Like life, it is all about the experience."
The HobbyZone® Carbon Cub S 2 1.3m Chandra Patey Limited Edition (CP LE) RTF is the easiest to fly, most capable, and versatile scale trainer RC airplane yet! It's equipped with exclusive SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that helps prevent overcontrol, loss of orientation and crashes so nearly everyone can learn to fly successfully. Beginner, Intermediate and Experienced modes allow you to choose the level of stability and control you need, or are ready to try, at the flip of a switch. And you can instantly return to steady flight using Panic Recovery with the push of a button in any flight mode. Oversized tires make it possible to take off and land on various surfaces, including thick grass, gravel paths, dirt trails, and smooth pavement, or you can install the optional floats to fly from water—which adds to its unmatched versatility and capabilities.
The Carbon Cub S 2 1.3m CP LE RTF is equipped with a 30-amp telemetry-capable ESC that provides a variety of real-time power system related telemetry data including motor RPM, current, battery voltage, and more to compatible Spektrum™ AirWare™ equipped transmitters, and even approximate flight battery power remaining via the LEDs on the DXS transmitter. The addition of exclusive Spektrum Smart components, including two G2 lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries and a charger, make it more convenient to charge correctly and safely. And you have the option to easily upgrade to SAFE Plus GPS-enabled technology that offers features such as AutoLand and Virtual Fence, along with the option to install the Landing Assist Sensor (LAS) that automatically "flares" for smoother landings, to make learning to fly—and to land safely—easier than ever!

Carbon Cub S 2 Video Overview
This Ready-To-Fly (RTF) model includes a Spektrum DXS controller/transmitter equipped with industry-leading DSMX® 2.4GHz technology and everything else you need to fly, including AA batteries for the transmitter, two Spektrum Smart G2 rechargeable lithium polymer batteries for the airplane, and a Smart USB charger. That means there's nothing extra to buy or provide so you can fly! The included transmitter, battery, and charger can also be used with other Bind-N-Fly® (BNF) Basic RC aircraft from HobbyZone and E-flite® after you learn to fly successfully.
Includes RealFlight® Trainer Edition and Spektrum™ WS2000 Wireless Simulator Dongle
The Trainer Edition of RealFlight® (RFL1205; a $39.99 value), the #1 RC flight simulator in the world, includes one field and six of the most popular Horizon® Hobby trainer aircraft from Blade®, HobbyZone® and E-flite® – including the Carbon Cub 1.3m. It also features Virtual Flight Instructor lessons that help new pilots learn to fly successfully because they can practice flying on a PC at home or on a laptop just about anywhere else! The Spektrum™ WS2000 wireless simulator dongle (SPMWS2000; a $44.99 value) connects to a USB port on a PC laptop or desktop and allows the use of the included Spektrum DXS transmitter to control the simulator, so it's just like you're out at the field. Plus, you can upgrade to the latest "full" edition of RealFlight any time for a discounted price of $69.99!
The Carbon Cub S 2 is equipped with a telemetry-capable ESC that can provide various real-time power system-related telemetry data to compatible transmitters. This includes approximate flight battery power remaining via multiple LEDs and audible alerts from the DXS transmitter included with the RTF version. It will also provide motor RPM, current, overall battery voltage, and more to Spektrum AirWare™ equipped transmitters (including the DX6e and 8e, DX6 G2/G3 and 8 G2, the DX9, the NX6, 8 and 10, the iX12, iX20, and others) while you fly.
Spektrum Smart Batteries and Charger
Two Spektrum 3S 2200mAh 30C G2 Smart LiPo batteries and an S120 USB-C Smart charger that can be used with a variety of USB power sources are included. Simply connect one of the batteries to the charger. The exclusive Smart technology will determine and start charging at the best rate to automatically and safely charge the battery.
Construction with advanced EPO material delivers a lightweight yet durable airframe that's tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. And in the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can't repair them, a full line of replacement parts is readily available.
The Carbon Cub S 2 arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power system, servos, flight controller, and receiver installed. All you need to do is finish some quick and easy final assembly without the use of glue or special tools, and you'll be ready to fly in less time than it takes to charge a battery!
Versatile Gear Options
Thick grass, gravel paths, dirt trails; you can fly from these and many other surfaces that are impossible for most models of this size to handle. The robust landing gear is equipped with oversized tires that soak up the bumps of rough surfaces and provide excellent prop clearance. The optional float set (HBZ7390, sold separately) takes just a few minutes to install, and all the necessary hardware is included with the aircraft and float set so you can fly from lakes and ponds.
Functional flaps are an option for improved slow-speed handling and even shorter takeoffs and landings. This feature requires a 7+ channel computer transmitter plus a flap servo and a servo extension (all sold separately).
Optional Landing Assist Sensor for Smoother Landings
The Spektrum Landing Assist Sensor (LAS) is easy to install and provides automatic "flare" control to help inexperienced pilots "grease" landings by minimizing or eliminating bouncing (works over many/most surfaces and offers optimum performance when flying over/landing in grass).
If this is your first RC airplane, Horizon Hobby-exclusive SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology prevents over-control and crashing while also offering multiple flight modes to deliver more control and capabilities as your skills progress:
Pitch and bank angle limits prevent over-control that can result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released the airplane returns to level flight on its own. Best of all takeoffs are as simple as giving full throttle and letting the airplane fly off the ground or by giving it a quick hand launch.
More freedom in pitch and bank, but still prevents over-control and does not return to level flight on its own. This mode allows you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend faster as your skills advance.
No pitch or bank angle limits so you have complete control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns and more.
If you lose control of the airplane in the Intermediate or Experienced flight modes, simply press the Panic Recovery button or switch to Beginner Mode and release the control sticks. SAFE technology will automatically return the airplane to level flight.
Easily Upgrade to SAFE® Plus GPS-Enabled Technology
With quick and easy installation of the optional Spektrum GPS Module you can add next-level autonomous guidance features that make it even easier to learn to fly. With SAFE Plus added you get:
Activated by simply holding down a button, the advanced AutoLand function puts the airplane on a stabilized approach to land on its own near the GPS initialization point. You can even provide some directional guidance to avoid obstacles or to adjust the approach while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe landing. As your skills progress and you gain more confidence you can take over more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land without any assistance from the automated system at all.
This very helpful SAFE Plus-exclusive feature essentially allows you to "pause" the flight by putting the airplane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When activated with the quick press of a button, the airplane will automatically return to a position above the GPS initialization point and circle until the command is cancelled with another quick press of the button. It's a great way to safely hand the controls off to a friend or to regain visual contact if you ever lose sight of the model.
It's easy to accidentally let an RC airplane fly too far away, but with Virtual Fence, worry no more. It creates an invisible boundary the airplane won't fly past. When the airplane reaches this boundary, it will automatically turn around and fly back toward the GPS initialization point. Then it will "wag" the wings to let you know when you have control again.
