THE ALL-PURPOSE AIRPLANE ANYONE CAN FLY
Whether you’ve never flown RC before or you got your first
taste of flying with a multirotor drone, the revolutionary Carbon Cub
S+ is the most versatile, capable and easiest to fly RC airplane
yet. Based on the Carbon Cub by Cub Crafters, an upgraded and
thoroughly modern iteration of the classic Super Cub, and equipped with
Horizon Hobby's exclusive and innovative SAFE® Plus GPS-enabled
drone technology, this scale reproduction makes it easier to learn to
fly in less time than ever before. Advanced features including
AutoLand, Holding Pattern and Virtual Fence make it easy for almost
anyone to fly successfully from their very first flight, while
additional features including oversized tundra tires and optional flaps
and floats offer the capability and versatility to fly from almost any
SAFE Plus features and
When activated after holding down a button, the advanced AutoLand
function puts the Carbon Cub S+ on a stabilized approach to
autonomously land near the GPS initialization point. You can even
provide some directional guidance to avoid obstacles or to adjust the
approach while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe
landing. As your skills progress and you gain more confidence you can
take over more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land
without any assistance from the automated system at all.
This handy SAFE Plus exclusive feature lets you essentially "pause" a
flight by putting the airplane into a GPS-guided holding pattern. When
activated after the quick press of a button, the airplane will
automatically return to a position above the GPS initialization point
and circle until the command is cancelled. It's a great way to safely
hand the controls to a friend or to regain visual contact if you ever
lose sight of the model.
It's easy to accidentally let an RC airplane fly too far away, but with
Virtual Fence worry no more because it creates an invisible boundary
the airplane won't fly past. When the airplane reaches this boundary it
will automatically turn around and fly back toward the GPS
initialization point, then it will wag the wings to let you know when
you have control again.
If you ever lose control of the airplane in the more advanced control
modes simply switch to Beginner Mode and release the control sticks.
SAFE® Plus technology will automatically return the airplane to
Pitch and bank angle limits prevent over-control that can result in a
loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released
the airplane returns to level flight on its own. Best of all takeoffs
are as simple as giving full throttle and letting the airplane fly off
the ground or by giving it a quick hand launch.
More freedom in pitch and bank, but still prevents over-control and
does not return to level flight on its own. This mode allows you to
make tighter turns and to climb and descend faster as your skills
advance. Beginner mode automatically activates and returns the airplane
to level flight when the airplane descends below approximately 30 feet
above ground level and the sticks are released.
No pitch or bank angle limits so you have complete control! You can
even fly inverted (upside down) and perform aerobatic maneuvers
including loops, rolls, stall turns and more. Panic Recovery Mode can
be activated by switching to Beginner Mode and releasing the sticks.
