Piper NE-1 Navy Cub 2400 from HobbyKing

Details

Large scale aircraft are a pleasure to fly and this beautiful replica of a 2400mm Piper NE-1 Navy Cub is no exception. It has the same stunning looks as the smaller H-King J3 Navy Cub (NE-1) but on a much larger scale and is just as easy to fly. The Cub is made of balsa and plywood with a realistic Navy Blue printed covering.

The US Navy acquired 230 of the NE-1 version during World War II to use as a primary trainer. It was a dual flight control version with the instructor up front and the student sitting in the rear seat. Like all Cubs, it is a very stable flier making it ideal for training.

Being an ARF there is a bit of building to be done but most components are already assembled. You need to fit your choice of engine, either gas/nitro or electric. Fit the tail surfaces and undercarriage then the plug-in wings (ideal for transportation). Then add all the additional electronics (your choice) like servos, receiver/radio and you will be ready to go.

The plane comes with a cowl complete with dummy engine and full instrument panel. There is a huge door to the cockpit for easy installation of batteries and R/C electronics plus a set of pilot seats. Outside is a functional bungee style undercarriage with large wheels for easy takeoffs and landing on grass fields.

This plane is an Icon of the Era and is ideal for all pilots that like that scale look and great presence in the air.

Features:

  • A faithfully reproduced authentic scale model of the famous Piper NE-1 Navy Cub
  • All wood construction
  • Plug-in wings for easy transportation
  • Quick wing strut connection for easy field construction
  • Molded dummy engine and cockpit detail with a full instrument panel
  • Set of pilot seats
  • Working cockpit side door for easy access to R/C electronics and battery
  • Functional bungee undercarriage
  • Large size wheels for easy grass field takeoff and landings

Piper J-3 Cub


Piper J-3 Cub

The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1938 and 1947 by Piper Aircraft. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. The Cub is Piper Aircraft's most-produced model, with nearly 20,000 built in the United States. Its simplicity, affordability and popularity invokes comparisons to the Ford Model T automobile.

The aircraft is a high-wing, strut-braced monoplane with a large-area rectangular wing. It is most often powered by an air-cooled, flat-4 piston engine driving a fixed-pitch propeller. Its fuselage is a welded steel frame covered in fabric, seating two people in tandem.

The Cub was originally intended as a trainer and had great popularity in this role and as a general aviation aircraft. Due to its performance, it was well suited for a variety of military uses such as reconnaissance, liaison and ground control. It was produced in large numbers during World War II as the L-4 Grasshopper. Many Cubs are still flying today. Notably, Cubs are highly prized as bush aircraft.

The aircraft's standard chrome yellow paint has come to be known as "Cub Yellow" or "Lock Haven Yellow".
