Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a Piper J-3 ElectriCub Radio Controlled Electric Airplane.
This kit is designed for the beginner to intermediate electric flier.
The stable flight characteristics of the J-3 ElectriCub lets you make a quick
transition to electric power.

The advantages of the ElectriCub II over the deluxe version are:

FEATURES

-Improved design with new CAD engineering provides easy, perfectly
interlocking construction for a quick building, light weight, yet
strong airframe assembly.
-In addition to rudder control, this model also includes ailerons.
Now adventurous pilots can easily perform basic aerobatic maneuvers
and coordinated turns.
-Motor mount accepts direct drive or gear drive motors. The motor is
not included, but this allows the modeler to choose from a variety
of options such as direct drive, gear drive or gear drive with
Electronic Speed Control, all offered from Great Planes.
-Semi-scale details include clear, precision-formed cabin windows
-Access the 7-cell NiCd battery easily from the compartment on the
underside of the fuselage. No disassembly or wing removal is
required. Simply pop out the pack, recharge and get right back in
the air.
-Bolt-on wing mounting lets you quickly and easily remove the wing
for travel, then reattach it securely in no time at the flying
field.
Replica engine cylinder heads, authentic Cub markings and a
one-piece ABS cowling are all included.
The Piper J-3 ElectriCub's flat-bottom wing has just enough dihedral
for comforting low-speed stability.
