    RE: Hobbico Flyzone Piper Cub Select RTF

    I fly it quite a bit. Mine has the wrong size cowl on it and a different brand prop and a 3sx2.2 pack. I like it real well and it is very easy to fly. I can't say as I've had any trouble with it except perhaps me bending the landing gear on rough tall grass landings.

    I got mine used without prop or cowl for $51. I'm now getting a bit bored with it and would not pay full price for one if I crashed it. It's a great 2nd plane maybe. It's also a bit under powered if you ask me.

    That's my short review. [:-] and here's some pics of my pipers. It's my biggest one right now , but I think I need a 5' or 6' wingspan too, right? I have 1'2'3'4' wings.

    RE: Hobbico Flyzone Piper Cub Select RTF

    Thanks for the reply. Great lookin line up there. I'm torn right now between building from a kit or this.
    Have you had experience using the wireless trainer feature? Hard to get an extra Tx? Cost?

    Thanks again.

    RE: Hobbico Flyzone Piper Cub Select RTF

    I like the Tactic Tx and haven't used the wireless , but I have verified that it works on the bench. I actually sold a bunch of extra Tactic Tx because all my planes came with them. They should be readily available and very cheap. The thing I don't like about tactic TX is the lack of multiple memories. I fumbled around with 5 planes and 5 transmitters before I got my radio issues sorted out.

    Tactic now has a nice anylink module that allows nearly any tx to be used with their rx. I'm going to get one. Unfortunately I don't have the option to build because of time and lack of knowledge and tools. I'd rather buy it and fly it.

    Pulled the trigger and it's now on the way to my house. Will post some pics and videos when Iget home at the end of the month.
    Out flying full scale right now. I'm a kit builder at heart but I just want to get back into the air for now. Going to build a Sig 4* and fly
    this while the Sig is on the bench.
