The HobbyZone® Super Cub Bind-N-Fly™ version gives first-time pilots the benefit of HobbyZone’s patented Anti-Crash Technology plus the flexibility of starting with a Spektrum™ DSM2™ 2.4GHz full range aircraft radio (sold separately). With a Spektrum radio, you can teach yourself to fly or “buddy box” with an instructor. And whatever Spektrum radio you choose will grow with you as you progress to other aircraft. With the Super Cub you can teach yourself to fly by mastering the basics of throttle, steering and pitch control with the assistance of HobbyZone’s exclusive Anti-Crash Technology (ACT). ACT ensures your first flights are smooth and stable by using special optical sensors and software that analyze your flight path. If ACT “sees” you are losing control and entering a steep dive, it reacts quickly to help prevent a crash by actually helping you regain control.
After you’ve mastered the basics, you can turn Anti-Crash Technology off with the flip of a transmitter switch. With ACT off, your Super Cub will be capable of more advanced maneuvers such as steep turns, loops and tail slides.
Everything you need to get flying, except a transmitter, is included in this box and you can be up and flying in as little time as it takes to charge the battery pack and bind the transmitter. You also get the added excitement of HobbyZone’s exclusive X-Port™ technology that lets you add remotely controlled functions like parachute drops (requires Aerial Drop Module™ - (sold separately). There’s even an optional float kit (sold separately) that lets you turn any lake or pond into a back country, bush-flying adventure.
ACT and X-Port function:
The receiver included in the Super Cub LP BNF is a 2.4GHz DSM2 receiver/ESC unit. It must be partnered with a full range DSM2 transmitter. It is equipped with throttle, elevator, rudder and aileron function.
For most of the DSM2 transmitters, channel 5 will activate ACT, while channel 6 will activate the X-Port function.
For the Spektrum DX5e transmitter, the trainer switch will activate the X-Port function.
