This is a full aircraft and power electronics combo to build a Balsa Basics Super Cub. If you want to get your electronics at the same time as your airframe kit, this is the bundle to get. This pack includes the model kit, motor, speed controller, servos, battery connector, sticker sheet, hardware and wheels.

For complete beginners who need a radio set, charger, battery and other essential investments to get started in the R/C hobby, see the 42" Balsa Basics Super Cub Full Beginner Bundle.  

4Ch Aileron Trainer Cub

The Super Cub is an ideal aileron trainer. Unlike the simpler standard 'Cub', this Super Cub variant is a 4-channel aircraft that includes an aileron wing. You can build this aircraft from start to finish in a matter of hours (although you can take your time sanding, detailing and finishing). Chunky components result in a sturdy airframe that is intuitive to assemble.

In terms of flying, the Balsa Cub's predictable characteristics and auto-pilot like handling makes it incredibly easy to learn on! It almost flies itself - meaning you need only use small inputs on the controls to point the aircraft in the right direction. Most of the time the Cub is happiest cruising along at minimum throttle, however, it can also perform basic aerobatics such as loops and wingovers. Ailerons add extra dexterity and help train you up for low wing models such as the Balsa Basics Spitfire. Flight times with the recommended battery can be up to 20 minutes on calm days. With a large 1000mm wingspan, you’ll also be able to take on windier conditions. Even if you are an expert builder and pilot, this is a great aircraft to keep in your squadron. 

Build It with Video Instructions

Unlike many of our other more complicated kits, the Super Cub doesn't need to be built over a plan and can be constructed on a normal sized table with some basic tools. All you need is to follow this video along step-by-step.

    I loved the build of this, it was so straight forward and easy. Mods make were to reinforce the fuselage where the wing dowels go through, a couple of washers behind the motor to give some right sided offset and the addition of a larger rudder servo and tail steering. The cub flies like a dream. When the wind picks up it does get buffeted about a bit though. A great introduction to balsa RC plane building.
