H-King NE-1 Navy Cub 2400mm (94.5") EP/GP (ARF)


I had the smaller foam version and it was a nice flyer and looked really scale! This one is MUCH larger ... at 2400mm. And it is wood!

Yes, I got the text.

I hope that is not false advertising on the dummy engine, because the pictures don't show any!

Landing gear looks a little tall.

I'd buy it if it had better landing gear and if the covering faired into the vertical stab proberly.

I bought one. Should be a great, slow flier. Price is pretty good for the size of this plane. -------Metalguy

Released a little too late for me. I was looking for a military scheme Piper this size a few weeks ago, but changed my plans now.

Nevertheless it seems to be a good offer.

Got mine today. Giant box, as can be expected. Faux engine is included. Seems they took pics a little to quickly . I was amazed yet again at how fast it got here, but it was only a state away from me. -------Metalguy

Hi there!

I am considering to buy this plane and install an electric setup. So far I have flown the H-King Grand Tundra (1700mm) and the E-Flite Cessna 150 (2112 mm). Therfore the 2400 mm Cub would be my biggest/heaviest plane and also my first wood airframe, so some more information and advice would be appreciated.

My questions:

1.) Will this plane fly well, powered by a 6s/5000mAh battery? (Scale flying, some medium aerobatics, no crazy stuff)

2.) Should I go for the 275kv or the 320 kv version of the 5065 Aerostar motor?

3.) What Amp draw can I expect from the recommended setup (6s battery / Aerostar 5065 275kv or 320kv motor / 20 x 8 prop) ?

4.) Any recommendation for a specific prop (manufacturer/size)?

5.) Can the battery be installed through the side door of the cockpit? (For non-gynecologists!)

6.) How about motorangles (down/right)? Are they necessary and if so, are they already "preset" by the installed firewall?

7.) Can the 5065 Aerostar motor be mounted directly against the firewall, or will I have to use some kind of spacer-frame? Any parts for that included?

8.) Any parts on the plane that scream for replacement/reinforcement/changes right away, before the first flight?

9.) What about transport / preparing the plane on the field (wings / struts)? Is it as easy as it seema (fast connections)?


Furthermore: Some unboxing pictures would really help me with my decision. Thank you!

I would go for a 400 kv motor and 16" prop. 16" is the scale size for this plane.



I had a cub of the same size that I flew on 500 kv and 10000 mAh 6S, but that was slightly high kv and ran hot:
