51" Wingspan Carbon Cub S+ RC Airplane with SAFE™ - Ready to Fly (RTF) - HBZ3200

How can an RC airplane act like a drone?  Easy with the advanced features this amazing Carbon Cub S+ comes with including SAFE™ and GPS-driven technology such as AutoLand, Holding Pattern and Virtual Fence.  These all conspire to make this one of the easiest RC airplanes to learn to fly on, virtually guaranteeing success from the very first flight!

Versatility is the name of the game with its giant tundra tires, optional flaps and floats that can give you the option to fly off of nearly any surface.

What's SAFE™?

Revolutionary SAFE™ (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology delivers flight control that's a quantum leap forward. Custom tuned for fixed or rotary wing aircraft, its evolutionary combination of multi-axis sensors and software incredibly make the aircraft intelligent enough to understand its flight attitude. Essentially, SAFE makes RC flight easier than ever before.

Far beyond stability, progressive performance options mean pilots can choose to develop with a greater degree of security and flight control. The result is that beginners have a far more relaxing learning experience and experts get outstanding control with protection benefits accessible at the flip of a switch. Best of all, sophisticated SAFE technology doesn't require any work to enjoy. Every aircraft with SAFE installed is ready to use and optimized to offer the best possible flight experience. And now with GPS Enabled Technology that provides pilots with advanced GPS position awareness so you can teach yourself to fly with ease.

  • AutoLand actively assists with landing with minimal to no pilot input

Carbon Cub ss

It's the easiest RC aircraft I ever flew. It's a lot of fun. It is faster than the Super Cub. I am fairly new at this hobby. I you trim out your controls and find your neutrals you should not have any problems. Great for a beginner or experienced pilot. Can't wait to fly it again! You pay a little more for this Carbon Cub but it is well worth it. I is built to withstand light pilot errors. I wish I had learned to fly on this aircraft!

Carbon Cub S

Outstanding airplane and a step up from my Super Cub. Well made, durable and love the flight levels and many safety features that help me with accident free flying. It will do all the acrobatics you want. The 4 inch wheels allow me to quickly take off even in wet grass...powerful motor gets her in the air quickly. Very happy with this airplane and really fun to fly!

Amazing plane (Except one fatal flaw)

I bought this plane recently and absolutely loved it! It flew amazing looked cool, and the tundra tires allowed it to take off and land on almost any surface! Why am I using past tense reference? Because on its third flight, flying in beginner mode it suddenly didn't respond and nose dived into the ground!☹️ How could this happen? The plane lost battery connection. Why? Well I noticed upon salvaging the wreckage, the Velcro strip which was pre installed in the plane had detached! I also noticed while thumbing back through the literature which came with the plane, that there was supposed to be a strap to secure the battery as well! I had none. Every plane I've owned in the past had snug fitting battery compartments. I'm not sure how it could be missed by the manufacturer, but it happened so now here I am looking at a $260 heap, wondering when the replacement parts will become available again. As much as it pains me to give a 3 star review on such an awesome aircraft, but I find it necessary to do my part im addressing this flaw so future customers don't wind up feeling remorse for their recent purchase. I'm not sure if defective (missing parts) merits compensation, but it would sure be appreciated.
