The J-3 Cub is said to be the best-flying light airplane ever made.
Designed in 1937 to be affordable and forgiving in the air, thousands
were produced in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania and helped countless aviators
realize the dream of flight. Today, lucky pilots scramble at the chance
to fly a J-3 Cub so they can experience what it's like to be in perfect
harmony with air and machine. The E-flite® UMX™ J-3
Cub is an ultra micro-size tribute to the gold-colored airplane and an
upgrade for veteran pilots.
Lightly constructed, this model of the everlasting classic features an
authentic outline and molded surface detail. Up front is a 2S brushless
outrunner power system that allows you to cruise the park at what seems
like a walking pace, or punch the throttle to the stops and master
basic aerobatics. But the feature that will help you enjoy flying this
Cub even more is AS3X® technology. That's because the AS3X
system built into the ultra-micro 6-channel receiver has been finely
tuned so you feel as if you're at the controls of giant scale J-3
that's been expertly trimmed right out of the box. Molded hard points
in the belly make the installation of an optional float set simple. So
whether your fancy is doing touch-n-goes all day, or just cruising
around, this fully assembled charm-machine gives you everything that's
great about the J-3 Cub and more.
The advanced AS3X® (Artificial Stabilization –
3-aXis) system built into the Spektrum™ 6-channel ultra micro
receiver is what helps give the E-flite® UMX™ J-3 Cub
an incredibly smooth feel in the air. It's technology that combines
3-axis sensing with exclusively tuned flight control software to help
counter the effects of wind and turbulence behind the scenes. As a
result, your workload to fly smoothly is significantly reduced so you
can enjoy natural feeling control that's precise. It's an impressive
flight experience that will have you feeling like you're at the
controls of an expertly-tuned scale model that's much larger.
The 180BL brushless outrunner motor installed spins a two-blade
propeller to provide outstanding thrust and throttle response for slow
flight and basic aerobatics.
Authentic factory applied graphics complement the Lock Haven Yellow
painted finish while the wing struts and exposed engine deliver an
unmistakable sense of realism.
