This airframe with electronics kit builds into a simple 3-channel RC model of the Cub trainer.

With a 42” (1047mm) wingspan and wing attached with rubber wing bands, it’s large enough to see and fly in a moderate breeze, yet small enough to transport easily in your car.

Easy to put together, this bundle includes our "B" Standard Electronics Pack with 2213 935kv brushless motor, ESC, 4 x servos and 1045 propeller.

Simply add your radio gear and battery of choice.

You will have to provide your own covering. We recommend Oracover, but any polyester heat shrink material should do the job.

Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.

For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.

Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.


Smaller items

Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.

For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.

A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.

The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.

Larger items

For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.

These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.

For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!

This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.

Having recently returned to aero modelling and only so far built a couple of gliders I wanted to build an electric powered trainer to re-learn RC flying as its been a long break, therefore I wanted a fairly robust steady flyer, I was bought this kit by my family and it is really is worth every penny, the quality of the wood is very good and lazer cutting is excellent ,far superior than the stamped out kits I remember from the 1970s, all the parts fitted together well and even though I built using aliphatic glue rather than super glue and had to change the sequence slightly it was an enjoyable build, I'm more used to scratch building from plans but this kit was a nice change, it is ideal for a complete novice with the detailed building guide and not having to use a plane or building board but is also a quick build for the more experienced modellers, though I have not flown it yet due to the current situation I'm sure it'll fly well, it balanced perfectly after fitting a battery, the electronic parts of the kit were easy to work out and fit especially as it was my first ever electric powered model, all in all a nice model, easy and quick to build, when finished it looks good too,
