Manufacturer's Overview

The E-flite® J-3 Cub 450 ARF airplane is the perfect scale model for small-field flying or making a quick flight at the local park as satisfying as possible. No other airplane has touched more pilots or better demonstrated that flight itself is an unequivocal expression of freedom than the J-3 Cub. Its practical design not only made it versatile, but more importantly, it made it a pure joy to fly. E-flite captures the Cub spirit in a lightweight all-wood structure that authentically replicates the character and distinctive outline of what the designer envisioned as the airplane for everyone.

From the richness of its traditional construction, to the authentic sheen of its UltraCote® finish and balloon-shape wheels, the E-flite J-3 Cub 450 ARF delivers a great-looking scale model the casual flier to expert scale critic will appreciate. The recommended E-flite power system was designed around popular and economical 3S Li-Po batteries to provide long, lazy flights or one wheel touch and go's.
