    This is the first plane I ever bought, and its also my favorite plane out of the other parkzone planes I have bought since purchasing this plane (Parkzone T28, P51, Corsair, and wildcat). Without the following modifications the plane will NOT get you ready for flying four channel planes, which is almost every other plane on the market. Let me explain, this plane is a three channel plane, which controls the motor, elevator (tail section responsible for raising and lowering the plane in the air), and rudder (tail section that will turn the plane left and right). It does NOT have the fourth channel that virtually all the other parkzone planes, 3d planes, and warbirds have which gives you control of the plane through the use of ailerons (servos in the wings that lets you turn left and right and roll). SO PLEASE make the following modifications and you will have an amazing plane: 1) go on youtube and search for "aileron additions to the super cub" and you will find detailed instructions on how to do it, the parts such as servo, hinges, and hardware will cost roughly $30 at your local hobby shop. 2) disconnect the ACT (anti crash technology), its only one connection and its clearly marked on the receiver in the fuselage and your better off without it because if causes more harm and confusion while you are flying then its worth (you can read about its flaws by googling discussions about it and its flaws). and finally 3) once you become more proficient add flaps, which is another $30 investment which helps slow the plane down through a crawl and makes for easier takeoffs and landings (instructions can be found on youtube and basically requires the same equipment as the aileron additions).Read more ›

    If I had a truckload of these things I could sell out within an hour of takeoff. By now I've told at least fifty people where to get one. It's a crowd pleaser and so easy to fly. I've had this for less than a week and I feel confident enough to move up to a more challenging plane already. In this week I have crashed and broken the little guy in half so many times. Not to worry, a little clear packing tape and maybe a new prop and I'm airborne again. When the batt is dead (20-30 minutes) the motor shuts off, but you retain rudder and elevator controls allowing you to land. Last night it died over a lake and sat there for almost two hours before I got it out. Swapped the battery for a full one and dried her out in the air. This thing is tough and you will get your $160 bucks for it the first day. Buy extra batteries though. They take an hour to charge, but last about 20-30 go I own three and I can fly all day.

    The Bind-N-Fly system is great, it lets you get a good controller that you can take with you when you upgrade planes, instead of being stuck with the usual junky controllers with the ready-to-fly kits. The Cub is also a great plane, it's easy to fly, forgiving, but still has pretty good power (loops and hammerhead climbs work great). It's got a very durable design as well with the rubber-band wing assembly - I crashed it wing tip first once, and I just had to re-align the wing to get flying again.

    It also has an anti-crash backup which will automatically bring the plane to level if you mess up too badly, which is great when you're getting started trying to get comfortable with the controls. I would still recommend a PC simulator like RealFlight so that you can practice and really push your limits before you take out the real thing - if only because it gets you over that initial nervousness and into when it's really fun and confident to fly.

    Verified Purchase
    I bought this as my first real trainer (I also own a ParkZone Radian, which doesn't count in my mind).

    Binding and assembly were easy, and I waited for a nice, calm time to try to fly it. Being aggressive about learning curves, I went ahead and launched from the ground (apparently you're not supposed to do this your first flight). Well, the launch was fine, the flight a bit shaky (my fault, not the plane's), and the landing was less than good. Bad, even. I broke a strut and chipped the cowl.

    I snipped off the broken strut, ignored the cowl, and went up again the next day.

    Beautiful take-off, slightly shaky flight, and an amazingly perfect landing! I then proceeded to smack the ground quite hard on my next flight. I broke a piece of landing gear trim, snapped a wing, and slightly squished the windshield area.

    I took off the trim, and glued the wing back together (just glue, no reinforcement). I then took it out a few days later in a very slight breeze.

    I took off from a sidewalk, and started to fly. My legs shook as I gained control of the plane, and then I started to really enjoy the flight! I did several circles of the park, a bit concerned about being able to land in the breeze (which had picked up during my flight). I managed to get the hang of losing altitude and brought it in. I got within a few feet of the ground, and then did a bit of a dive. The landing looked a bit rough to me, but the plane sustained no damage!

    I then took off again, with a cross wind (stupid, stupid, stupid), and rolled and crashed immediately. The wing broke but didn't snap all the way through (along the glue joint - my next repair will have reinforcement).
