The original Carbon-Z® Cub was ground-breaking and created a new category for large-scale, electric-powered models. Based on a platform that was known for legendary versatility, its lightweight and exceptionally strong, composite-reinforced and hollow-core design was mostly factory-finished and assembled so it was easier for more pilots to go "BIG" than ever before. The E-flite® Carbon-Z Cub SS 2.1m is an updated and refined version of the original, equipped with a long list of new features for improved flight performance, capabilities and convenience so you can enjoy a giant-scale flying experience unlike any other.

Key Features :

• An updated and refined version of the ground-breaking and category-creating original Carbon-Z Cub
• Giant-scale 84"/2.1m wingspan with lightweight and exceptionally strong composite-reinforced, hollow-core Carbon-Z construction
• Drooped wing tip design increases wing and aileron area for significantly improved slow speed performance and control
• Thumbscrews with decorative gas caps and snap-on antennas to easily install/remove the two-piece wing without tools
• Modified flap design allows them to travel both ways for full-span aileron and other mixing options
• Articulated and shock-absorbing landing gear with improved and strengthened mounts
• Even larger oversized, tundra-style wheels with softer tires for better ground handling
• Fully-molded top and bottom landing gear covers for a more scale-like appearance

• Quick-release, multi-position battery mounting tray fits 4–6S 3200–7000mAh batteries
• Improved design motor with added bearing for smoother, more reliable performance
• 15x7 propeller molded from material that better maintains balance and stiffness
• IC5 connector (compatible with EC5 connectors) on the 60-amp ESC for better and more reliable power delivery

The E-flite® Carbon-Z® Cub SS 2.1m makes it easier than ever to enjoy a truly unique and versatile giant-scale flying experience. Based on the original Carbon-Z Cub, it's equipped with an abundance of new convenience, capability and flight performance-improving features. An updated wing design with drooped tips adds wing and aileron area for significantly improved slow speed handling, performance and control. The modified flap design allows them to travel both ways for full-span aileron and other mixing options, and thumbscrews make it easier to install and remove the two-piece wing without tools.

Articulated and shock-absorbing landing gear, equipped with even larger oversized tundra-style wheels with softer tires, offers better ground handling that soaks up the bumps of rough surfaces. The push-button released, top-mounted hatch offers convenient and easy access to the battery compartment – which now holds a quick-release, multi-position battery mounting tray that fits 4S to 6S 3200–7000mAh batteries. An improved motor design featuring an additional bearing, plus a propeller molded from material that better maintains balance and stiffness, results in smoother and more reliable power system performance. The composite-reinforced, hollow-core airframe arrives mostly factory-finished and assembled, and the installed digital, metal-geared servos with ball-link equipped linkages deliver crisp and precise control.

So whether you fly it slow and scale, or perform beyond-scale vertical takeoffs and aerobatics, the Carbon-Z Cub SS will offer unexpected levels of versatility, capability and performance you'll enjoy flight after flight!
