HobbyZone’s Super Cub RTF has proven to be the best way for beginners to learn the skills needed to fly radio controlled models even if they are doing it on their own without an experienced RC pilot to help. Now the new Super Cub LP RTF improves on the original with a Li-Po battery for longer flight times and an interesting new color scheme. The Super Cub LP includes everything needed to fly the model and in as little time as it takes to charge the battery. It is also a very durable airplane able to survive some of the mishaps related to beginner’s first flights. The Z-Foam™ construction is easily repaired with common adhesives so the model will be back in the air within minutes. Check out the features listed below. I was able to catch up with Eric Johnson, product developer in charge of the Super Cub LP and asked him to show us all about the new model.
