LEVEL UP TO 4 CHANNEL RC WITH THE SUPER CUB
Based on the same fuselage as our 3 channel Balsa Basics Cub, the Super Cub adds an aileron wing to give the perfect stepping stone to our Balsa Basics warbirds.
Easy To Build
Designed for beginners, you can build the Super Cub in just a few hours. The chunky, precision laser-cut parts fit together seamlessly to build up a sturdy airframe.
The fuselage is built as a box with strong, interlocking ply formers and the wing “self jigs” around a plywood spar. Ailerons are built into the wing and attached using mylar hinges connected to wing mounted servos.
Easy To Fly
The Super Cub flies in the same predictable way as its 3 channel sibling giving you plenty of time to get familiar with a 4 channel aileron set up.
Like the Cub, you need only small inputs on the controls to point the aircraft in the right direction and the Super Cub will happily cruise along at minimum throttle.
With the addition of ailerons, the Super Cub can perform even more aerobatically allowing for tighter loops and wingovers.
Flight times with the recommended battery can be up to 20 minutes on calm days.
The large 42” (1047mm) wingspan allows you to take on windier conditions and a pair of quality 2.5" semi-pneumatic rubber wheels make for smooth take-offs and easy landings.
If you're thinking of taking on a Blasa Basics Spitfire or similar warbird, this is the perfect stepping stone.

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.
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.
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.
