This model aircraft makes giant scale flying easier. With its large Tundra wheels, you can take-off and land on virtually any terrain.  A mechanism is included which allows you to tow sailplanes with wingspans up to 3 metres in length. What's more, there is an optional float set available for this model aircraft along with a camera mount for aerial filming (both sold separately). Should you encounter any troubles during your flying, you will find the Carbon-Z structure to be easy to repair.

These features are coupled with digital metal gear servos and precise ball-link hardware. The Carbon-Z Cub remote control plane also comes with functional flaps, giving you greater control at low airspeeds and the ability to shorten your take-off and landing distances. The brushless power system in this E-Flite model plane gives you the muscle you need for superb STOL performance and wide versatility. Because this is a BNF plane, you will require your own radio, battery and charger. Please refer to the "What You Need" section for more details. The Carbon-Z Cub is a great entry point if you are ready to step up to giant-scale RC planes. Rich in features and wide in performance options, the Cub is a great investment. Order yours today.
