Back country airstrips, remote mountain lakes, alpine glider ports -
wherever adventure requires wings, chances are the Piper Super Cub is
there. Since 1949 its rugged construction, impressive payload and
marvelous short-field performance have made it a mainstay for bush
pilots. Even now, over half a century later, it remains the plane of
choice for many who follow the road less traveled.
This beautiful, ¼-scale Plug-N-Play® version of the
Super Cub has been expertly modeled in stunning detail. Almost every
line and curve mirrors the real thing, right down to the shape of the
fillet where the fuselage meets the vertical stab. Every control
surface, including the flaps, features a metal-gear Spektrum™
digital servo so that setup is easy. The included Evolution®
33GX gas engine is ready to bolt into place with the provided in-cowl
exhaust so you get reliability that offers power to spare.
All you need to provide are the batteries, receiver and transmitter to
enjoy great flight performance. Like the full-scale version, this model
has functional flaps that give it amazing short-field takeoff and
landing abilities. It also possesses the same easy-going flight
characteristics, but will eagerly perform sport aerobatics, even when
using the optional Hangar 9 floats.
The ¼-Scale PA-18 Super Cub PNP is part of the complete line
of top-quality Hangar 9® aircraft and accessories. All are
engineered and crafted to exacting standards and feature the finest
components and materials. Plus, every Hangar 9 product comes with the
after-sale service and technical support you need to succeed.
FOLDING WING STRUTS
The accurately modeled wing struts fold up against the wing when
disconnected for easy transport. Quick-connect strut pins are used so
that no tools are needed for field assembly.
SCALE LANDING GEAR WITH WORKING SUSPENSION
This working recreation of the o-ring bungee landing gear used on the
full-scale Super Cub will soak up bumps during ground operations just
like the real thing.
The functional flaps allow you to enjoy the same short-field takeoff
and landing performance that full-scale Super Cub pilots do.
PAINTED FIBERGLASS COWL AND ALUMINUM SPINNER
Both the incredibly detailed cowl and scale-looking aluminum spinner
come painted like you see here.
WORKING, SPLIT-FOLD COCKPIT DOOR
The magnetically secured cockpit door can be left open during flight,
just like on the full-scale version. Through the lower cockpit door,
the factory installed radio and ignition switches can be easily reached.
BUILT-IN MOUNTS FOR OPTIONAL FLOAT KIT
Hard points for mounting the Hangar 9 ¼-scale Cub float kit
(sold separately) are already built into the fuselage.
OPTIONAL FULL-DEPTH COCKPIT
Your Super Cub will really stand out on the ramp when you add the
optional full-depth cockpit (sold separately).
OPTIONAL LED LIGHTS
The model's wing and fuselage have been designed to make it easy to
route the wiring for LED lights (sold separately). Clear light covers
are also included.
