FMS 1700mm (67") Piper PA-18 Super Cub

As a relative of the popular 1400mm J-3 Cub, the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub retains great flight characteristics while offering increased power and wingspan.


From FMS

The Piper PA-18 Super Cub is a two-seat, single-engine monoplane. It was developed from the Piper PA-11. In close to 40 years of production, over 9,000 were built. Super Cubs are commonly found in roles such as bush flying, banner towing and glider towing.

Thanks to its functional flaps, high-lift airfoil, rugged landing gear and oversized balloon tires- the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub has impressive short take-off and landing (STOL) performance, allowing it to operate from just about any terrain.

Utilizing the latest FMS hardware and design, the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub has pre-installed ball-link type pushrods, integrated servo connectors in the wing structure and can be assembled very easily using no glue at all.

For pilots wanting to get the genuine bush-plane experience, the PA-18 Super Cub can be equipped with floats.

Versatile, fun and exceptionally relaxing to fly- the 1700mm PA-18 Super Cub is a great addition to any fleet!

Here's an idea Jim.....
How about when you start a new "News" thread, about a plane that's actually been out for 3 months, you put a link in the story to the original thread that has been going for the 3 months.
It would help people to find out more about the plane, instead of having them ask questions here!!
Here is the thread.....
