  • Piper J-3 Cub 40 ARF

    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 of the assembly line nearly every 20 minutes, and many of these beloved airplanes are still around today. 

    Hangar 9's new .40-size Piper J-3 Cub ARF captures the classic scale lines and smooth flight performance of its grandfather, a full-scale Cub owned by Pat Hartness, whose Triple Tree Aerodrome hosts the annual Joe Nall and Don Lowe Masters RC events.  Constructed from top-quality balsa and lightweight plywood materials and showing off a vibrant Cub Yellow UltraCote scheme, this scale Cub will provide aviation buffs with hours of sport-flying fun.

    Appearance

    What a beauty to fly, very stable (even on a windy day), easy to transport. Some difficulty on assembly on site (wing bolts on the bottom very hard to access). If repaced by pins (like 1/4 scale) will be helpful.
    I prefer electrical conversion setup (used equivelant to 46 engine) and 80amp sec + 4900mAh 5 cells battery and 13x8 prop wood -electrical. For take-off only 15-20 runway is required at full throttle, and during normal flight I kept the throttle at 1/2 , loops and inverted flight easily done. I usually set my radio timer for 6 mins for flight duration; when I checked the battery after landing, 35-40% of the battery capacity was still available.
    I highly recommend this Piper for everyone who would like to enjoy a quiet flight without any surprises.
    Now I am looking for a 1/4 scale to be added to my fleet.

    Appearance

    On the maiden flight I wanted to climb. I trimmed some down and trimmed right aileron with the wind at 8-11 mph. It was all over the place. What a handful. I brought it in and made it about 5 feet when it flipped straight over on its back. Nothing broke. I rechecked the CG. The CG was right on. I added 0.75 lb of weight to the inside of the bottom at the CG to make it bottom heavy. She flies like a baby now.
