The Hobbyzone Mini Super cub is a smaller version of a very
popular model. Lots of useful information for those interested in this mini
beginner RC Plane.
The Min Super Cub is a conventional, high wing beginner RC airplane. It comes
completely assembled and ready to fly. This is a 3-channel model that uses a 27
MHz radio. You must ensure that there is no one else on your frequency, before
you switch on the transmitter. Two transmitters, on the same frequency
equals two crashed airplanes! Note that 6 different frequencies are available.
The Anti-Crash Technology (ACT).
(ACT) is built in and can be switched on and off.
Two sensors are mounted as shown in the photograph and can sense the attitude
of the aircraft. If there is enough altitude, the system will return an aircraft
to an upright and stable flight position, after the flyer has lost model
This feature can save many a beginner from a crashed and maybe damaged
Completely finished airframe, manufactured from Z-foam.
3-channel RC transmitter on 27 MHz.
Transmitter dry batteries.
7.4V 300mAh Li-Po battery.
12V Dc balancing charger and AC adapter. (Note that
adapter is not shown in the photo.)
Everything is included. Maybe the only thing to consider buying would be an
extra Li-Po, to swap out when the first one is used, thus reducing wait time
This video, by Hobbyzone, shows some nice flying shots and does show the ACT
The Hobbyzone Mini Super Cub is very easy to fly and very forgiving-just what is required for the novice
flyer! As long as there is enough altitude, then the ACT works well. Watch the
CD to get full information.
Completely finished and ready to fly.
Everything is included-nothing else to buy.
Simple to fly and very forgiving.
Wing is held on with rubber bands-very forgiving and
saves a lot of damage in hard landings.
Excellent price for a true hobby grade airplane-this is
not a toy!
27 MHz system. Check for other flyers before switching on
Spring centered throttle stick is weird! -Should be
conventional ratchet style.
Small wheels means grass take-offs impossible.
The majority of reviews of the Hobbyzone Mini Super Cub were very positive. The majority of complaints were
regarding the ACT. Remember that this system does need height to allow the
airplane to recover. It acts like an automatic pilot and tries to bring the
plane into a stable, level flight condition.
Trying to learn to fly on your own, can be done, with an airplane such as
this Super Cub. However it is mush easier if you can find an experienced flyer
to help and guide you through these first steps. Time with a good
flight simulator is also very
