Outstanding scale details, brilliant functionality and the spirit of adventure - the 1/4-scale PA-18 Super Cub PNP from Hangar 9 is a majestic model plane.
The Superb Hangar 9 Super Cub
Since its creation in 1949, the Piper Super Cub has established its reputation as the number one choice for adventurous flying. In the spirit of this timeless classic, Hangar 9 have constructed the 1/4-scale PA-18 Super Cub. Offering the same accurate scale detail seen in the Super Cub ARF, this model is now available as a Plug-N-Play plane. Each line and curve on this model is an accurate reflection of the full-size aircraft. Hangar 9 have even focused on recreating the shape of the fillet where the fuselage and vertical stab meet. Additionally, every control surface, including the flaps, comes with a metal gear Spektrum digital servo to make setup very straightforward. An Evolution 33GX gas engine is also included, which can be easily bolted into place with the in-cowl exhaust included with the plane. All that you will need to supply are the batteries, receiver and transmitter.
In keeping with the full-scale version, this model plane has functional flaps that will allow you to perform great short-field takeoffs and landings. Speaking of which, the Cub features a scale landing gear with working suspension. Not only does this reflect the real plane's o-ring bungee landing gear, but it will also absorb bumps during ground operation. You will notice that the flight characteristics are easy-going, but the Super Cub can perform sport aerobatics too. Hangar 9 have ensured that getting to and from the field with this plane is very easy; the moulded wing struts can easily fold up against the wing when disconnected. There are also quick-connect strut pins available, so that no tools will be required for assembly at the field.
Similar to the Inverza, this plane is constructed from balsa and light plywood. Among its many features, the Hangar 9 Super Cub offers a painted fibreglass cowl and aluminium spinner, which come fully-painted. The magnetically-secured cockpit door also features a split fold. This door can be left open during flight (just like the full-scale Super Cub). With the lower cockpit door, you will be able to easily access the radio and ignition switches. This is another stunning scale model plane from Hangar 9 that you can take great pride in. Order yours now.
