New Carbon Z Cub Coming Soon

The E-flite Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m makes it easier than ever to enjoy a unique giant-scale flying experience. Based on the original Carbon-Z Cub, it's equipped with many convenience and performance-improving features that make it better than ever! The original Carbon-Z Cub was ground-breaking and created a new category for large-scale, electric-powered models. Based on a platform that was known for legendary versatility, its lightweight and exceptionally strong, composite-reinforced and hollow-core design was mostly factory-finished and assembled so it was easier for more pilots to go "BIG" than ever before. The E-flite Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m is an updated and refined version of the original, equipped with a long list of new features for improved flight performance, capabilities and convenience so you can enjoy a giant-scale flying experience unlike any other.

Key Features:

  • An updated and refined version of the ground-breaking and category-creating original Carbon-Z Cub
  • Giant-scale 84"/2.1m wingspan with lightweight and exceptionally strong composite-reinforced, hollow-core Carbon-Z construction
  • Drooped wing tip design increases wing and aileron area for significantly improved slow speed performance and control
  • Thumbscrews with decorative gas caps and snap-on antennas to easily install/remove the two-piece wing without tools
  • Modified flap design allows them to travel both ways for full-span aileron and other mixing options
  • Articulated and shock-absorbing landing gear with improved and strengthened mounts
  • Even larger oversized, tundra-style wheels with softer tires for better ground handling
  • Fully-molded top and bottom landing gear covers for a more scale-like appearance
  • More secure rear mount and cross braces for the optional floats (sold separately)
  • Quick-release, multi-position battery mounting tray fits 4–6S 3200–7000mAh batteries
  • Improved design motor with added bearing for smoother, more reliable performance
  • 15x7 propeller molded from material that better maintains balance and stiffness
  • IC5 connector (compatible with EC5 connectors) on the 60-amp ESC for better and more reliable power delivery
  • Vibrant, high-visibility Carbon Cub SS Signature trim and color scheme
  • Spektrum™ AR636 6-channel receiver with industry-leading 2.4GHz DSMX® technology
  • Easy to fly with innovative, optional-use SAFE® Select flight envelope protection
  • The unmatched stability and locked-in feel of exclusive AS3X® technology
  • Six factory-installed digital, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages
  • Convenient push-button released, top-mounted hatch for easy battery access
  • Extremely wide scale and mild to beyond-scale aerobatic and wild flight envelope
  • Tow up to 3-meter span sailplanes with the included aerotow mechanism (servo sold separately)

Depends on you what you consider "regular vehicle". My Carbon Z Cub fits in a Audi A4 sedan (tight squeeze) . Here is someone's storage rack in post 18297.....

@GP49 - Should have no problem stuffing it in to a VW Passat then . Thanks for answering !. I fly helicopters now, but wouldn't mind this plane, to get back into airplanes, and to fly when the fix'd wing flyers take over the flight line.

What other upgrades are people planning?
Talon 90 with a power 60 again?
