In for Review: E-flite Super Cub 25e–Platinum Series

Well, those who know me, understand I have a “thing” for Piper Aircraft, particularly Cubs! Piper’s Super Cub has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I have built quite a few in my hobby career. It’s a great first scale project for any modelers who’s earned his RC wings. Cubs are stable and gentle fliers and all you have to do is add some flaps and a new engine cowl and you have a great new scale aircraft.

   

Just in for review, the new E-flite Super Cub 25e ARF is the newest project on my building boards and I can’t wait to get it in the air! It has respectable power, excellent performance and it is built really well. Part of the E-flite Platinum Series this new red and white Super Cub captures the look and feel of the full-size aviation classic and will make anyone feel like a bush pilot in no time!

Features Include:

  • Balsa and light plywood construction
  • Two-piece plug-in wings
  • Functional, shock-absorbing main gear
  • Magnetic, factory-painted fiberglass cowl with panel lines
  • Scale corrugation detail on flap and aileron control surfaces
  • Functional split cockpit door
  • Scale aluminum wing struts
  • Covered in genuine Hangar 9® UltraCote® covering
  • Durable Super Cub wheels and tires
  • Leaf spring tail wheel assembly
  • Realistic cockpit interior details (sold separately)

  1. This one’s on my wish list. The scale detail is enough to make me want to acquire one as a static display only cause i’m disabled. Ed
