The classic Cub, CAD-engineered for electric flight.


You'll enjoy many advantages with Great Planes' Piper J-3 ElectriCub — from exciting semi-scale looks patterned after one of aviation's most popular aircraft, to versatile performance that makes it a thoroughly satisfying first (or next) electric model. It tucks away comfortably in your car, always ready for a flight... just pop in a fresh battery and take your place in the sky!

  • CAD engineering provides easy, perfectly interlocking assembly -- further simplified by a one-piece ABS cowl.
  • Aileron-equipped wing increases maneuverability for flying basic aerobatics.
  • Semi-scale details include clear, precision-formed cabin windows, replica engine cylinder heads and authentic Cub markings.
  • Bolt-on wing mounting lets you quickly and easily remove the wing for travel, then reattach it securely in no time at the flying field.
  • Motor mount accepts direct drive or gear drive motors.

fuselage compartment
You access your 7-cell NiCd battery easily from the bottom of the fuselage — it's installed in this handy compartment. No disassembly or wing removal is required... just pop out the pack, recharge, and get right back in the air!
flat-bottom wing
The Piper J-3 ElectriCub's flat-bottom wing has just enough dihedral for comforting low-speed stability. But in addition to rudder control, the model also features ailerons — so adventurous pilots can easily perform maneuvers and coordinated turns.
CAD-perfected parts
Designed to minimize weight for electric operation, the model features CAD-perfected parts for exact fits — and interlocking construction for quick, strong assembly. Detailed, photo-illustrated instructions also make this an unusually builder-friendly kit.
