Tower Piper J-3 Cub ARF
Fly the plane that got America airborne!
The classic Cub took to the air in 1938 and in the decades since has trained hundreds of thousands of pilots. The simplicity of construction and easy handling that made the original so popular are what makes this scale ARF the first scale model you should own. It’s 90% preassembled, includes “barn door” ailerons, and is covered in high quality, Cub Yellow covering. Plus, once you open the box, you’re only 15-20 hours from the air.
