VMAR J3 Piper Cub - Stick and Rudder Bliss.

Iconic in every form, the J3 Piper Cub hails from the golden age of flight, and is no doubt one of the most popular aircraft in the skies today. VMAR brings this iconic plane to life with scale details and quality in this rapid build ARF kit that can be flight ready in hours versus days.

Spanning 54" from tip to tip, the VMAR J3 Cub offers exceptional scale flight characteristics, with excellent low speed maneuverability & predictable stall performance. Amiable in character, the J3 is rugged and tough, with its size making it the perfect plane for midsized parks & flying fields.

Incredibly easy to build with a no glue, bolt together assembly process, the J3 Cub requires minimal work, with a (3) to (5) hour assembly process. Fully covered in a Polycote ECS covering, the VMAR J3 Piper Cub makes the entire build process a breeze, allowing you to spend less time assembling and more time at the field and in the air.

Utilizing (1) servo per aileron with an ultra simplified 4 channel layout, the J3 Cub was designed for electric power, making this plane incredibly easy to setup and maintain. Offering excellent bang for your buck value, the J3 Cub is ultra low in cost, and requires minimal equipment to get in the air, equating to a full up build far less in price than comparable aircraft. Further this with a 2 piece wing that allows easy transport and storage, the J3 Cub is easier than ever to manage in the hangar or at the field.

Easy to fly with excellent levels of scale detail and quality, the VMAR J3 Piper Cub is the perfect choice for beginner to advanced pilots, offering gentle flying qualities with scale realism that will be appreciated by all.

Nice little Cub

Fun flying parkCub. Flies way better than anticipated, father liked it so well I got him one also, the cowl was damaged in shipment, hoping I can get a replacement. In the wind, the rudder helps a lot in turns, lands great, floats in, nice! Thanks.

Addon to previous review

To add to the previous review. I did go with 80mm tires, both for looks and grass runway. Also went with a larger rear wheel and forked the rudder to the tail wheel vs. using the plastic tag. She flies great and I'm very impressed with the landing gear so far. Going for the Grasshopper next time!

Excellent balsa kit

Very well made kit with tons of room to spare. Running a sunnysky 2216 1250 kv on a 35a blheli32 esc. I'll be buying a second cub for sure!

This is a very nice model.
Solidly built and flawlessly covered. The motor mount is predrilled, and adjustable for length.
Assembly is simple and straightforward. I added some larger tires as my flying area is not the smoothest. The instructions, leave a little to be desired. Haven't been able to fly yet as it's been way to windy and rainy,, but all in all, well worth the money spent!

Awesome airplane!

Very realistic solid well built model airplane
For a great price. I bought it as a totally cool static display to hang fom my patio roof. I custom installed wingtip, fuselage, cabin lights, and an electric motor from a cannibalized house desk fan so she lights up like a flying Christmas tree! i can't give a flying report because i haven't mastered flying them. It would be a crash report . For my plans, it surpassed my expectations and now i want another one to hang beside it. Great conversation piece!

VMAR J3 Cub

This is a very nice model, its built of balsa and lite ply, and flawlessly covered. The motor mount is predrilled, and adjustable for length.
Assembly is simple and straightforward.
The only drawbacks, the instructions, and hardware leave a little to be desired, but all in all, well worth the money spent!
I liked it so much I ordered the L4 Grasshopper, and will probably try the P 51 Mustang next!
