FMS 1030mm (40.5") Piper J3 Cub Version 2 in Classic Yellow Color Scheme - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS028

Note: The photos above incorrectly show a pilot included. This model does not come with a pilot.

One of the most famous high wing, light-sport aircraft ever to be built, the Piper J3 cub is a historical icon. Built between 1937 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft, the original plane was designed to be a tandem seat trainer, but the plane was so easy to fly, it became one of the most popular planes for general civil aviation. This FMS 40.5" (1030mm) wing span version of the classic plane is every bit as detailed as the original. And it flys just like the real plane - smooth, stable and responsive. The J3 Cub is a perfect "2nd Model" after you have completed practice with a beginner level aircraft. If you have only flown "belly landers" in the past, the Piper Cub is also a great plane to practice take-offs and landings with its tail dragger design and large rubber tires. Enjoy this piece of aviation history, now in an 1030mm medium class size.

Tech Note: The original manual is incorrect when referencing the center of gravity (CG). Do not attempt to invert the Cub to check CG, rather, check the CG with the plane right side up. The proper CG for this model is 45mm from the leading edge of the wing at the root. We have added the updated manual for your convenience.
