Modeltech Super Cub Gen-II Glow/EP 40 ARF

The Modeltech Super Cub looks to be a very nice scale plane. I have not seen any posts, pictures, or videos about it. Please post your impressions about this plane.

Here is the link...

O.K. here's my 2 cents worth----It's hard to tell from the pictures, but I believe it is definitely lacking in scale detail, and also maybe gereral outline. The pic's dont show it for sure, but it looks like it has the J-3 rudder shape. It has no skylight in the cabin top, no jury struts, no flaps, and probably no balancers on the elevators. I can't tell about the forward cabin braces just behind the windshield. On a Super Cub, they should be in a "V" shape. It also has no air inlets in the front of the cowl.

The model could be a good flyer, although the wing loading is a bit high for my taste, though not too bad.

AmpAce-

I appreciate your comments on the Super Cub. I did notice that the model was lacking some scale details. I was just surprised that nobody has posted about this model. From looking at the instructions it seems they have added flaps and air inlets in the cowl.

I guess you can't get everything unless you kit build... I was looking forward to building an Adrian Page 80 Cub, but he seems to have stopped production.

I was impressed by the 80" Hangar 9 J-3. Hangar 9 did have a Super Cub out a few years ago. I wish they would make a new electric version.

Thanks for the reply!

I think I'm going to detail a Hobbyzone Super Cub for bush flying (tundra tires).

Have fun with your new Cub!
