24.3" Wingspan Sport Cub S Trainer RC Airplane with SAFE™ Stabilization - Bind-N-Fly (BNF) - HBZ4480

The Hobbyzone Sport Cub S is another beginner RC plane recommended by Motion RC. The HobbyZone Sport Cub S is a small size plane which allows a beginner to learn to fly an RC plane in a small area. If you live in a place without a lot of wind and you would like to learn to fly an RC plane in a small area, this beginner RC plane is for you.

The HobbyZone Sport Cub S is budget friendly since it includes everything but a radio at this price. for those who want to pick out their own radio, this BNF is a better choice than an RTF. We recommend the Spektrum DX6, DX8, or DX9 for this plane as the DX6i is not compatible with SAFE. Speaking of SAFE, Another advantage of this beginner RC plane is the SAFE™ gyro flight stabilization technology. The trainer plane will auto correct itself with the push of a button should you get out of shape or into trouble. As you gain confidence, you can turn SAFE down and learn loops, rolls, and inverted flight.

This is a 4 channel beginner RC plane so you can learn the use of ailerons and rudder. The included receiver is a Spektrum receiver which makes it easy to find an instructor to "buddy box" with should you want to go that route for learning. Small and light beginner RC planes like the Sport Cub S do not sustain much, if any, damage during an inevitable crash by a beginner. If it does sustain damage, parts a small and inexpensive to replace.

The bigger they are the harder they fall is indeed true in the world of RC planes. Small light RC planes line the Sport Cub S always sustain less crash damage. However, larger planes are often easier to fly because they are easier to see and handle wind with ease. You must weigh the pros and cons for your area. Please take into account the wind in your area, the size of the area, the landing surface (grass vs pavement), and of course your budget.

Pros and Cons of this plane:

  • Pro - Low price of entry, low price of spare parts.
  • Pro - Small light planes often sustain little to no damage during crashes.
  • Pro - SAFE™ stabilization technology makes learning on your own easy.

This plane is so fun

This plane is so fun to fly, and I can say truthfully that from a beginner you will have so much fun that like me you will fly it until you can hear it start to sputter from the battery going dead. So fun

Sport Cub S BNF

So far so good. Sensitive to wind! I lost my 1st one to an updraft that I couldn't recover from. Otherwise, this plane is great and a great beginner's product. I'm still in the beginners' mode but gaining more confidence and expertise with each flight. No problem binding to my original Sport Cub S transmitter.

Purchase of HobbyZone Sport Cub S with SAFE - BNF

Love this little plane. Practically flies itself. The only problem was I didn't understand the transmitter requirement for the BNF. I saw that all it needed was a "4 Channel Radio - Select a minimum 4 channel radio from our Radio Collection ", I had a six channel, so I bought the plane. Turns out it needed a "DSM2/X" transmitter. Very important information. So, I had to buy another transmitter or return it for a RTF. I decided to get another transmitter because I wanted one better than the RTF supplied version. The plane, although small and seems fragile, has been a fantastic plane. I flew in high winds the first time because I was determined to fly. With SAFE enabled, it handled the wind pretty easily and so far, in about 20+ flights, the only crash has been me flying it through (into) a soccer goal on a windy day. Mistake. Made it five times, but the sixth time was my undoing. Crushed the nose in, but nothing a little glue couldn't fix.

Flying High

As always dealing with Motion RC is easy. Ordered on line and picked up product at the nearby warehouse, no problem. They even opened the box to ensure what I ordered is what I got. Great company
