The HobbyZone Sport Cub S 2 Ready to Fly with SAFE technology is a versatile and easy to fly small trainer, easily flown in backyards, parks or your local sports field. This model is based on one of the all-time most popular trainer aircraft ever designed for learning to fly radio controlled (RC) airplanes, the Sport Cub S, and builds on this models solid reputation with updated telemetry capabilities and exclusive SAFE technology that helps to prevent crashes. These updated make learning to fly easier than ever, and the Version 2 Sports Club's ultra-micro size allows for more flying options than found with larger, less forgiving planes.

The fun doesn't stop after you learn how to fly. It's lightweight yet durable air-frame is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers long flight times and provides plenty of speed and power to perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls and even inverted (upside down) flight. That means the Sport Cub S 2 is a model even experienced pilots will appreciate and enjoy flying – and can also use to teach others to fly. The Bind-N-Fly Basic version is the perfect choice for those pilots because it allows them to use their favorite Spektrum transmitter along with batteries and chargers they may already own. And the Ready-To-Fly version is perfect for first-time pilots because it includes a Spektrum controller/transmitter equipped with industry-leading DSMX 2.4GHz technology, AA batteries for the transmitter, plus a rechargeable LiPo flight battery and USB charger. That means there's nothing extra to buy or provide, just get flying! Best of all both versions arrive 100% factory-assembled – no assembly required.

Everything you need to fly
You just need to find a place out side with ZERO wind
too lite and engine underpowered
It’s an arc kite

One rough landing and the wing broke

Great trainer,

This quarantine made me search for a new hobby and this is the first plane I ever flew(not counting video games) and I managed to get it in the air and fly around on the first try. Great battery life for its size and an all round great plane to learn how to fly.
Highly recommend if you are in the states, however if you're in europe the import fees end up being more expensive than the plane itself...

Amazing little plane. Buy extra batteries and enjoy hours of fun! Be wary of wind, obviously it's very light and the wind really pushes it around.

Great starter airplane. My 9yo son loves it. It’s easy to fly and pretty durable since it’s already been stuck in 2 trees.

HobbyZone Sport Cub S 2 RTF Electric Airplane w/SAFE (616mm)
I have flown small drones for several years now as a hobby. For my recent 73'd birthday the family suggested I should learn to fly R/C aircraft as a new interest.After watching several Youtube videos I settled on purchasing the Sport Cub S2 as my beginner A/C.Being in Lockdown in New Zealand I purchased on line from amain hobbies in the US. The service was outstanding and the model arrived 6 days earlier that stated by them. Amazing service. The aircraft was excellently packaged and arrived with no damage. What an amazing looking replica and required no setting up other than a slight change to the rudder push rod as advised in the manual then I was ready to try my first flight. Feeling quite nervous I decided to try a hand launch and applied full throttle and just let go of the plane. The feeling of excitement as the airplane climbed into the air was awesome. The SAFE technology had the plane in a very stable slight climb and all I needed to do was a slight trim on the rudder to have it flying straight. After several left and right hand circles has been flown I tried my first landing. With the a/c heading towards me I just decreased the throttle to induce a controlled decent and the landed on a patch of grass beside me. Plane flipped over as the grass grabbed the wheels but as a first ever flight I was very pleased with myself. Can't wait for another fine day so I can continue with my new hobby. Just need to buy some extra batteries so that I can do more that one flight per outing. Would recommend this to anyone wishing to enter the hobby. If I can fly this anyone can. Thumbs up HORIZON this is a winner.
