Parkzone made a variety of cubs. Some were on 27 MHz and some on 2.4 GHz.
What color is it?
What is the wing span? Measure it from tip to tip.
Depends on how old it is. If it is one of the original Parkzone super cubs then it was likely on 27 MHz. There are 6 potential channels.
If it is one of the new DSM Super cubs then it is on Spektrum 2.5 GHz and any Spekturm radio should work.
Can you post a photo?
Look to see if there is an antenna hanging out of the plane. If there is, then it is on 27 MHz. IF there is no antenna it is probably on 2.4 GHz.
If you can get to the receiver, look for the antenna. If there is one and it is more than 6" long then it is on 27 MHz. If you can see a short antenna, perhaps 2, then it is on 2.4 GHz. There are no channels on 2.4 GHz so any spectrum radio will work.
There are probably two and they are probably very short, about an inch or so. If they are longer, say 16" or longer then it is 27 MHz.
This is the manual for the Super Cub RTF DSM on 2.4 GHz. This may be helpful.
A photo of the plane may help.
