XCub 450mm RTF with SAFE

Introduction

Now it's easier than ever to learn to fly RC (Radio Controlled) airplanes in more places and smaller spaces with the HobbyZone® XCub 450mm! Its ultra-micro size makes it perfect for flying in large yards, parks, soccer fields, and other suitable spaces where larger “trainer” models can’t typically be flown successfully by first-time pilots. Plus, it features a “pop off” prop saver design and incredibly tough EPP construction that makes it one of the most durable trainer airplanes yet! Best of all it also features SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology that helps prevent overcontrol, loss of orientation, and crashes so nearly everyone can learn to fly successfully. The 100% factory-assembled airframe is equipped with a reliable electric power system, receiver, and servos. It’s also RTF (Ready-To-Fly) right out of the box including two rechargeable batteries, a charger, and a controller/transmitter so there’s nothing else you need to buy or provide to fly!

LEARN TO FLY SUCCESSFULLY

Welcome to the exciting world of RC (Radio Controlled) flight! If you’ve ever dreamed of taking to the skies, Horizon Hobby has you covered. We are committed to engineering aircraft that you can learn to fly with successfully even if you’ve never flown RC before. Every HobbyZone® aircraft we offer features industry-leading design and technology developed by experts to keep you in control and learning at your own pace so you can turn your dreams of flight into a reality!

The HobbyZone XCub 450mm is a scale replica of the popular XCub by CubCrafters, which is the safest and most extensively tested adventure airplane ever! It’s also an upgraded and modern iteration of the Super Cub and the classic J-3 Cub that came before it – which was one of the most popular trainer aircraft designed before WWII. That’s a big part of why the XCub 450mm makes learning to fly radio controlled (RC) airplanes in more places and smaller spaces easy and fun! Its ultra-micro size makes it an ideal choice for a smaller trainer model that can be flown in large yards, parks, soccer fields, and other suitable spaces where larger models can’t typically be flown successfully by first-time pilots. Best of all, it’s equipped with Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope (SAFE) technology that helps to prevent overcontrol, loss of orientation, and crashes so nearly everyone can learn to fly successfully! Beginner, Intermediate, and Experienced flight modes allow you to choose the level of stability and control you need, or are ready to try, at the flip of a switch.

And the fun doesn't stop while or after you learn how to fly! The lightweight yet extremely durable EPP airframe is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers long flight times and provides plenty of speed and power to perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, and even inverted (upside down) flight in the Experienced mode. Or, if you’re not ready to perform aerobatics on your own, the XCub can automatically perform single or even multiple loops or rolls in the Beginner or Intermediate flight modes with just a quick press of the “Aerobatics” button and by moving the control stick in the desired direction!

This Ready-To-Fly (RTF) model includes everything needed to fly in one box and is a perfect choice if you're a new RC pilot. From the 5-channel 2.4GHz controller/transmitter and the AA batteries for it, to the two 1S 400mAh rechargeable Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries and a convenient charger that can be used with a variety of USB power sources, there's nothing extra you need to buy or provide! There’s even a spare propeller featuring the unique "pop off" prop saver design included in the rare chance you might need it.

Skill Level 1 “trainer” aircraft are perfect for beginners and first-time RC (Radio Controlled) pilots because no prior experience is required to fly them! And after you learn to fly the XCub 450mm successfully you can move up to a larger and more capable trainer or a “Skill Level 2 – Next Step After A Trainer” model.

Durable Design
Durable Design

The unique “pop off” prop saver design plus construction with advanced EPP material delivers a lightweight yet incredibly durable airframe that's tough enough to handle everyday flying punishment without getting bent out of shape. A spare propeller is included, and in the unfortunate event you damage any airframe parts or components and can't repair them, a replacement airframe and spare parts are readily available.

Capable Gear
Capable Gear

Taxi over, take off from, and land on smooth surfaces using the included landing gear plus steerable tailwheel. Or, leave the landing gear off to easily hand launch over then land on grass or other suitable surfaces.

SAFE technology
Learn to Fly Successfully with SAFE® Technology

If this is your first RC airplane, the included SAFE® (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology prevents overcontrol and crashes. It also offers multiple flight modes to deliver more control and capabilities at the flip of a switch as your skills progress:

 

Beginner Mode
Beginner Mode

In this flight mode, the airplane has pitch (up/down) and bank (left/right) angle limits that prevent overcontrol which could lead to a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are released, the airplane automatically returns to level flight allowing you to relax and enjoy simply 'steering' the airplane through the sky. Best of all, takeoffs are as simple as giving full throttle and letting the airplane fly off a suitable surface, or by giving it a quick hand launch over surfaces such as grass. And landings are as easy as lowering the throttle and letting it glide to a landing on its own!

 

Intermediate Mode
Intermediate Mode

This flight mode allows more freedom in pitch and bank but still prevents significant overcontrol and the airplane returns to level flight on its own more slowly than it does in the Beginner mode. This allows you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend faster as your skills advance.

 

Experienced Mode
Experienced Mode

In this flight mode there are no pitch or bank angle limits so you have complete control! You can even fly inverted (upside down) and perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls, stall turns, and more.

 

Automatic Aerobatics Mode
Automatic Aerobatics Mode

The fun doesn't stop while you learn how to fly! Even if you’re not ready to perform aerobatics on your own, the XCub can automatically perform single or multiple loops or rolls in the Beginner and Intermediate flight modes with just a quick press of the “Aerobatics” button and by moving the control stick in the desired direction.
