Not an ARF, but Sig makes a nice little 1/6 scale Clipped Wing Cub Kit with a 56" wing span. Uses up to a 40 size engine. $75 for the kit.

I have one of these, but it's still in the box. I've pulled some of the pieces out and from what I've seen, it's very well made. As soon as room opens up on the radio, out of memory positions, it's one of the planes on the short list for assembling.

So far these all look pretty nice. ARF with the best scale look is what I'm after. Do any of these have flaps?

I'd say probably not on the 1/8 scale Cub, or even the 1/6....not sure about the rest.

I flew my World Models 63" clipped wing cub today for the first time. I bought it used and fully assembled. She doesn't have flaps, but since it uses a servo for each aileron you could program your radio for flaperons or spoilerons. She slows down fairly well for landing though.
It has a very high roll rate (for a cub) and flew inverted without fuss. She looks good coming down the runway low and slow. The wing comes off in one piece. I fit it into my little Toyota truck (extra cab) without problems.
