Of all the RC park flyers available, the HOBBY ZONE SUPER CUB RTF ELECTRIC is THE way to go!
If you are looking for an easy flying RC park flyer then the Hobby Zone Super Cub RTF Electric should be at the top of your list!
My recommendation for first time flyers is to first purchase an RC FLIGHT SIMULATOR and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! When you are thoroughly competent at flying towards yourself and can take-off, fly a good "race-track" pattern and land without crashing then it is time to try the real thing!
It comes as a RTF (Ready-To-Fly) kit and incorporates the exclusive Anti-Crash Technology (ACT) that makes teaching yourself to fly rc park flyers easier and safer than ever before. With ACT, anyone can learn to fly!
Here's how it works:
Two sensors on the Super Cub, one on the top and one on the bottom of the fuselage, monitor the position of the plane in relation to the ground. When the plane is flying level, the top sensor sees the sky, while the bottom sees the ground, and they tell the onboard computer that the plane is flying correctly. If the plane enters a dive and the sensors detect that the plane’s orientation is incorrect, the system will automatically correct the control inputs and help prevent the plane from crashing, allowing you time to regain control. ACT lets you fly without worry. And once you’ve gained experience with your Super Cub, you can turn ACT off for more complete control and increased maneuverability.
Unlike most rc park flyers for entry-level pilots, the Hobby Zone Super Cub has realistic scale features that are appealing to those pilots who want a teach-yourself-to-fly product that looks like a real airplane.
A powerful 480 motor that offers great climb rate and power, and is more powerful than most motors on other teach-yourself-to-fly rc park flyers.
Two chargers included - a 3-hr AC delta peak wall charger (HBZ7130) and a 1.2A variable rate DC peak charger (HBZ1026) are included to give pilots two options for charging their Ni-MH battery packs.
X-Port technology that allows pilots to use add-on accessories, such as the Aerial Drop Module, for added fun beyond learning to fly.
Steerable tail wheel - allows pilots to more easily make turns while navigating on the ground, and makes takeoffs and landings more controlled.
Two flight modes - ACT can be left on or turned off to allow pilots to be able to learn with ACT and then fly without it, once experienced, to do more advanced aerobatic flying.
Steel wire pushrods provide more precise manipulation of the control surfaces for added responsiveness and a more durable control component.
Durable Z-Foam construction - an extremely durable foam that is lighter and stiffer than most foams, and allows the plane to fly truer and straighter out of the box. It is easily repairable with CA, and is the same material that is used in the F-27B Stryker and Typhoon 3D from ParkZone.
Detailed instruction manual and video CD educate pilots who are new to RC park flyers, about flying, repairs, batteries, chargers, and replacement parts.
One-box purchase, so everything that's needed to get into the air is included, even AA batteries for the transmitter.
A ready-to-fly design that allows users to get in the air quickly after simply attaching the wing, tail and landing gear, and installing the rechargeable 7-cell 8.4V 1000mAh Ni-MH battery pack.
An easy-to-install, one-piece wing that provides incredible handling in the wind and smooth flight, and a conventional tail design
A 3-channel radio system that makes it easier for pilots who are new to RC park flyers, to teach themselves how to fly with a 3-channel airplane, thanks to ACT. Additionally, the third channel allows for pitch control so that pilots can make tighter turns and have a wider range of maneuvers, as well as the option to make pitch trim adjustments while the plane is in the air.
Wing Span: 47.75" Overall Length: 32.5" Motor Size: 480 Power Radio: 3 channel proportional FM Trim Scheme Colors: white, red, and black
For a beginner RC airplane, the only feature that MAY prove a challenge, is the "tail-dragger" landing gear. As most launches will probably be from the hand, then landings are the only time when this will be a problem.
Just remember, when taxiing on the ground, keep UP elevator (to keep the tail wheel on the ground) and apply the throttle in short bursts.
