Simple Cub Speed-build Kit
Material - Maker Foam
Wingspan - 956mm
Adopting the new, clean, white MakerFoam, the Simple Cub is both quick to build and easy to fly. In its most simple form just 11 separate pieces of foam is all there is to the airframe of this desirable little model which, of course, makes for a delightfully speedy build time (under 2 hours). But theres more. Much more. Designed with versatility at its heart the FT Simple Cub offers its builder the option of upgrading from basic 3-channel (rudder, elevator and throttle) control to 4-channel (rudder, elevator, aileron and throttle) without building a new wing. Whats more, in keeping with the Flite Test philosophy, the aileron modification only takes 15 minutes to add and opens up a world of new options such as flaperons and, of course, aerobatics.
If dropping foam bombs for target practice is something you fancy trying then note that the same aileron servos can double as drop mechanisms. Fly it as a trainer, add the optional floats, or just remove the undercarriage for rough field flying, this one does it all, and does it effortlessly. Truth is, with its ease of build, versatility, rugged good looks, strength, superb flight characteristics and go-to appeal, this design is possibly the most rewarding to build, fly and modify of all the FT designs.Key Features
