It’s all in the details.  Large scale air enthusiast will marvel at this giant scale, super detailed J-3 Cub Plug-N-Ply™. The ¼ Scale J-3 Cub PNP is a great flying large scale airplane, perfect for a 1st time large scale flight experience because of its smooth flight characteristics. Everything except for a transmitter and receiver is installed at the factory, including the perfectly-matched Zenoah 20cc electric ignition engine and JR digital servos. The Zenoah G20ei, the smallest, lightest gas engine available, has an impressive thrust to weight ratio that provides plenty of power to make this giant beauty soar. Fill the tank, turn on the ignition, flip the prop and it is running. You can experience longer flights, achieving better than 30 minutes per tank. All of these characteristics result in a great engine for anyone purchasing their first gasoline ignition model airplane. The low fuel consumption of the G20ei allows the consumer to fly longer with less fuel than similarly-powered 4-strokes—making this Cub an economical performer.

Hangar 9 has thought of just about everything to make this large scale Cub an incredibly accurate replica of the ever-popular Piper J-3 Cub. Right down to the scale dash with Piper Cub emblem in the tachometer, this is the large scale beauty designed with the scale admirer in mind. Scale enthusiasts will appreciate the more realistic Cub outline facilitated by tubular construction of the top fuselage contour. Likewise, the scale fin to fuselage fillet molding echoes its full-scale counterpart. The scale Cub wheels and working landing gear facilitate easier landings, touch and go excitement and one-wheel arrivals.

Scale fanatics will be astonished by the full-bodied pilot figure that is not only of accurate scale but is also posable. The operating door panels offer easy access to the interior of the plane and interior seating locks into the cockpit floor yet is removable; both also contribute to the scale realism of the full scale Cub.

Besides the unparalleled scale detail, consumers also get smart design features like collapsible wing struts that are connected to the wing with a pivoting pin and keeper while a pin and cotter key system allows the struts to be removed from the fuselage without hassle. The 2-piece stab can also be removed if necessary.
