Pilot quick build J3 Cub

Hi,

Does anyone have knowledge, previous build and fly experience of the
no longer available J3 cub from Pilot. This was the smaller quick build version .
Any info, advice would be appreciated.
I'm considering my first J3 cub and don't want to get too involved buiding something like a Sig, but something sport-scale would suffice...
Your thoughts ??

Thanks in advance,

Checkprop

Years ago I built their quick build Cessna 177. It was very easy to build and flew great. It was not at all a trainer though. I would imagine the Cub would be similar, so if you are confident in your abilities to fly a convetional gear sport plane it should be a decent flier. Pilot has had a good reputation for quality kits, both in building and flying.

Checkprop,
In as much as I hate to promote any company per se, you might take a look at the J3's from E-flite & Hanger 9. I have the E-flite 450, 25E & H9 80"(the old Power 46) & 1/4 scale. They're all great fliers and pretty easy to assemble. Not to mention they sure are pretty in the air. The E-flite 25E lacked detail and may well still lack detail. They make a Super Cub but it's white with red trim and just doesn't look right IMHO. Nice flier and a lot of scale detail but..BLAH..I put mine up for sale. They're all easy enough to add some scale details to. Just my .25 cents worth.
