FMS 1400mm (55.5") Piper J3 Cub Version 2 in Classic Yellow Color Scheme - Receiver Ready (PNP) - FMS035

    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 55" (1400mm) 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 a 1400mm large scale size.


    • Scale details including clear glass canopy, hand painted pilot figure, multi-point wing struts, and authentic Piper Cub graphics
    • Large, spring dampened landing gear help smooth out rough landings.
    • Two blade prop for performance and durability
    • Steerable tail wheel makes it easy to taxi on the ground and makes it fun for touch and go practice
    • Main wing easily removes for easy transportation
    • Rugged plastic engine cowl
    • High wing design provides very stable platform at slow speeds, while also allowing for acrobatics such as loops, stall turns, rolls, reverse half Cubans, and more
    • Durable EPO Foam
