With a span of 68 inches, the Super Cub comes in just slightly larger than 1/6-scale and it is ideally suited for someone’s first “fun scale” competition flyer. It has all sorts of top-shelf features including a functional, shock-absorbing landing gear and leaf-spring tailwheel assembly, aluminum wing and jury struts, and two wing panels that are glued together. This gives the top of the cabin, with its skylight, an accurate scale outline. Also included in the kit are nicely detailed scale corrugated flaps and aileron surfaces and plug-in horizontal stabilizers that also enhance the scale outline of the tail surfaces. The engine cowl is made of fiberglass, comes painted and uses magnets and alignment dowels for quick and accurate attachment. The whole airframe is ruggedly built from lightweight laser-cut balsa and plywood parts. There is also a nice scale cockpit accessory kit, and you can even equip the Cub with E-flite’s plug-in lighting control unit and navigational and landing lights.
