The HobbyZone® Sport Cub S 2 makes learning to fly RC airplanes in more places and smaller spaces easier than ever! Based on one of the most popular trainer aircraft ever designed for learning to fly radio controlled (RC) airplanes—the legendary Sport Cub S —it's ultra-micro size makes it the ideal choice for a smaller trainer model that can be flown in large yards, small parks, soccer fields, football fields and other suitable spaces where larger models can't typically be flown successfully by first-time pilots. Install the optional float set (EFLUA1190, sold separately) and you can add large pools and small ponds to the list of places you can fly! Exclusive SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology helps to 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. Plus you can instantly return to stable flight using Panic Recovery in any flight mode. This makes the Sport Cub S 2 a natural evolution of the trainer many pilots learned to fly with because it includes all of the same great features, while also adding new telemetry capabilities that send flight battery voltage to the transmitter to make the pilot better aware of approximately how much "power" remains.
And the fun doesn't stop after you learn how to fly! It's lightweight yet durable airframe is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers long flight times and provides plenty of speed and power to perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls and even inverted (upside down) flight. That means the Sport Cub S 2 is a model even experienced pilots will appreciate and enjoy flying – and can also use to teach others to fly. The Bind-N-Fly® Basic version is the perfect choice for those pilots because it allows them to use their favorite Spektrum™ transmitter along with batteries and chargers they may already own. And the Ready-To-Fly version is perfect for first-time pilots because it includes a Spektrum™ controller/transmitter equipped with industry-leading DSMX® 2.4GHz technology, AA batteries for the transmitter, plus a rechargeable LiPo flight battery and USB charger. That means there's nothing extra to buy or provide! Best of all both versions arrive 100% factory-assembled and ready to go right out of the box – no assembly required!
Nothing! Everything you need to fly and begin having fun is included!
Very fun, would recommend very little wind...lol
My son is an aspiring pilot in training. He was completely enamored at a recent air show by this unit. It is the perfect gift for beginners and would definitely recommend!!
This is a high quality micro plane. Perfect starter plane for any age. Flown 3x and it takes a rookie landing beautifully. Fun stuff. Now I want to larger model.
Had for 2 yrs 2000 crashes the best plane I've ever flown.
This is my first RC plane and it is the first one I've flown. I am amazed at the features this model has for the price. For a raw beginner the SAFE feature is very helpful and makes learning much easier. Having three flight modes makes the plane fun for a beginner as well as a more experienced pilot. Being an ultra micro means flying in no-wind or very light wind conditions. Otherwise the plane is a blast to fly. Be sure to get extra batteries and another charger so you don't run out of power.
Now I know why they discontinued the first version of the Cub. This plane has all the features to handle wind up to 15 mph, no matter what the manual says. It has bigger wheels, ailerons, and a much better propulsion motor. Just keep in mind that the SAFE system uses considerable power with the beginner level.
READ the instructions before you try to fly this little plane. You need to understand what the controls do before you try to fly it. I destroyed the first one before I knew how to fly. Oh by the way, I am a real l pilot for the last 35 years. But these are different.
Just read, understand and go fly it in an open place.
I have now purchased my 3rd plane. 1x RTF and 2x BNF. Both re-purchases were my fault. Lost one in the wind (even after i read that it is not recommended to fly over 5 MPH winds). Other nosed in hard and broke a few parts. Figured it was cheap enough that I would get another to have the spare parts. I have honestly had a blast learning to fly this thing!!!
The Sports Cub was a birthday gift for my seven year old son, who has been asking for a RC plane for some time. He is a little intimidated after experiencing a few crashes, but he is still excited about the plane. When I operated it, it was a challenge to figure out, but it was a thrill to fly it! There was a mix up with the order, and Hobby Zone was responsive and timely in their support.
This is the first RC plane I have bought. I wanted to get into rc flying. I went with this option. Out of the box, looks great. Had a slight issue getting it to connect to the transmitter. But after a couple of tries, it worked. Was in a big open area and it flew just as expected. No problems. The wind kicked up though and this little plane is quite light. So the only downfall was the wind needs to be nil. Had 2 crashes due to the wind but nothing broke. It's durable. I would suggest this plane for a beginner. Everything in the package.
I purchased a sport club s2 and it took me 20 days to basically destroy it and I didn’t have luck putting on the water legs and from there I glued some pieces as I crashed it. Glue don’t work with stirofoam and it melts it. Well the motor smoked and stopped running. I contacted customer support via Email and ask for a warranty and my plane was really not even going to run correct once the motor would be replaced so they so thankfully replaced the entire plane for me and even paid the shipping. It took a lot of emails but we’ll worth it. I wish the plane held up and battery lasted longer but I’m thankful for how they took care of me.
The "safe" technology cost me the entire plane! I took off for the first time and the plane climbed immediately. I did a preflight and noticed the elevator was not level to I maxed out the trim. I had to put full elevator down just to keep it level! I followed the advice of a local shop to fix it and it made it worse. On my second flight it continued to climb rapidly until it was a speck in the sky. Yeah, flew it twice to watch $130 disappear. Why? SAFE technology prevented me from banking had and bleeding off altitude. By the time I could switch it off it was too late! As a real pilot, I think this tech is trash and lost me the plane. If I had full control I wouldn't have lost it.
