J-3 Cub V3 1400mm (55") Wingspan from FMS - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMM106

The FMS J-3 Cub V3 is a refreshing diversion from the ubiquitous yellow livery found flying in the skies of flying fields across the globe.  Offered in an alternative and attractive white and red color scheme.  This V3 model also comes with floats for those who love the ability to fly on both land and water.  

The J-3 Cub V3 displays tremendous slow and stable flight characteristics, has Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capability and doesn't eat up too much sky so it's gentle and easy for those not with a lot of flight experience or someone just looking for relaxing flight.  However, with its potent Predator 850kV brushless motor, the J-3 Cub V3 is perfectly capable of aerobatics for those who like the option for thrills.  For land or water, for slow and relaxing or aerobatic thrills the J-3 Cub V3 has something for everyone.

Features:

  • Highly visible vibrant red and white paint scheme
  • Scale engine, wing struts and landing gear
  • Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) capability
  • Floats for water takeoffs and landings
  • Durable EPO foam construction

Very Nice Cub

I love a Cub. I've had a few and for the most part liked them all. When I read FMS was updating their 1400mm Cub, I got in line early. The weak part of most scale Cub models is the landing gear. I think FMS has finally produced a smallish Cub with robust landing gear. Flying from our club grass runway is not a problem and landings are smooth and bounce free. Remember to ease the throttle up as you take off, don't try to floor it and expect a smooth take off. In the air it flies very light and 1/2 throttle will get you around just fine if you like scale like looks. After 5 minutes of mixed throttle flying, my 2200 batteries come back with about 40% left in them. The foam is smooth and the red paint and decals are well applied. The red and white scheme is not really my favorite, but with most of the plane being white unpainted foam, it should be no problem to wrap or repaint the plane. However, the red and white does show up well in the air! About the only thing I can complain about is the single pilot should be in the back seat, per normal Cub operations. At this size and price point, I think the V3 FMS Cub is a bargain.

Facelift number two

I could only handle bad ground handling so much. She was so illmanerd that I went to my local hobby shop and purchased a new gear. I'm mounting it this afternoon and I hope she will soon behave. The gear is wider and I'm using 3inch tires on it. I hope it works I'll keep​ you posted.

A joy she is

I finally flew my cub. She had just undergon a face lift(new color scheme) and was looking Sharp. I gave her power slowly, and she lifted off. She climbed to altitude and started to do her thing. She flew unrelentless for 5, and then was landed. She had flown AWESOME. She's definitely a great airplane. But be cautious. She's illtempeted on the ground, and she will groundloop if you let her. But still, fly her carefully and you'll cry.

Ready to cub it up.

I just built my cub. Took my timr, took 2 days. I didn't like the color scheme so I redid it. I bought some white, and red, trimkote and redid it. I covered the letters n the wing, n fuselage, with white. I then cut some red trim to cover the white cross on the tail. I cut some racing streaks in red for the wings and horizontal stab. I'm waiting for some Kallie Graphics to finish her off. Otherwise the construction was easy. The parts fit well, other then the control clevisis(be careful here, they break easily). She hasn't flown yet, but I'm sure she's a cub joy.

Ground Looping cub

The plane is first class, foam is perfect, decals and paint scheme are great. Assembly is quick just watch your screw selection . This club like all cubs will ground loop and wing over into the ground if you hammer the throttle. Keep the tail on the ground and power up slowly.
