Carbon Cub S+ 1.3m RTF
Whether you've never flown RC before or you got your first taste
of flying with a multirotor drone, the revolutionary Carbon Cub S+ is
the most versatile, capable and easiest to fly RC airplane yet. Based
on the Carbon Cub by Cub Crafters, an upgraded and thoroughly modern
iteration of the classic Super Cub, and equipped with Horizon Hobby's
exclusive and innovative SAFE Plus GPS-enabled drone technology, this
scale reproduction makes it easier to learn to fly in less time than
ever before. Advanced features including AutoLand, Holding Pattern and
Virtual Fence make it easy for almost anyone to fly successfully from
their very first flight, while additional features including oversized
tundra tires and optional flaps and floats offer the capability and
versatility to fly from almost any surface, anywhere.
The included RTF version DXe transmitter is bound to the
aircraft at the factory. The DXe can also be used with other RC aircraft
as a pilot's skills progress.
Thick grass, gravel paths, dirt trails - Tundra wheels can
tackle these and many other surfaces that would be impossible for most
models of this size to handle.
The functional flaps are an option for impressive short-field
takeoff and landing performance. This feature requires a 7+ channel
computer transmitter, a flap servo, and a servo extension. (Sold
Turn your model into a float plane with the optional Hobbyzone
float set. Installation takes just a few minutes and all the necessary
hardware is included with the aircraft and float set.
When activated after holding down a button, the advanced
AutoLand function puts the Carbon Cub S+ on a stabilized approach to
autonomously land near the GPS initialization point. You can even
provide some directional guidance to avoid obstacles or to adjust the
approach while letting the system do the rest to execute a safe landing.
As your skills progress and you gain more confidence you can take over
more of the control inputs, eventually learning to land without any
assistance from the automated system at all.
This handy SAFE Plus exclusive feature lets you essentially
"pause" a flight by putting the airplane into a GPS-guided holding
pattern. When activated after the quick press of a button, the airplane
will automatically return to a position above the GPS initialization
point and circle until the command is cancelled. It's a great way to
safely hand the controls to a friend or to regain visual contact if you
ever lose sight of the model.
It's easy to accidentally let an RC airplane fly too far away,
but with Virtual Fence worry no more because it creates an invisible
boundary the airplane won't fly past. When the airplane reaches this
boundary it will automatically turn around and fly back toward the GPS
initialization point, then it will wag the wings to let you know when
you have control again.
If you ever lose control of the airplane in the more advanced
control modes simply switch to Beginner Mode and release the control
sticks. SAFE® Plus technology will automatically return the airplane to
Pitch and bank angle limits prevent over-control that can
result in a loss of orientation and crashes. When the control sticks are
released the airplane returns to level flight on its own. Best of all
takeoffs are as simple as giving full throttle and letting the airplane
fly off the ground or by giving it a quick hand launch.
More freedom in pitch and bank, but still prevents
over-control and does not return to level flight on its own. This mode
allows you to make tighter turns and to climb and descend faster as your
skills advance. Beginner mode automatically activates and returns the
airplane to level flight when the airplane descends below approximately
30 feet above ground level and the sticks are released.
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. Panic Recovery Mode can be
activated by switching to Beginner Mode and releasing the sticks.
