Great Planes Piper J-3 Cub Fabric Covered .40 ARF GPMA1311

This is a Piper J-3 Cub .40 1/5 Scale R/C Glow Powered ARF Airplane Pre-covered in Solartex fabric. 90% Factory-Built and Truer to the Original Plane than Most other R/C versions. This kit is designed for the Beginner to Intermediate Flier.

Features

  • Great Planes Piper J-3 Cub Fabric Covered .40 ARF GPMA1311

  • Huge IMAA - Legal 81" Wingspan.

  • Excellent first sport-scale kit - assembles quickly, maneuvers well and lands slow and easy.

  • One-piece 81" bolt-on wing

  • Reproduces the full-scale aircraft with amazing accuracy, using precise CAD engineering and data from original Piper 3-view drawings.

  • Can be flight-ready in 15-20 hours. The prebuilt, all-wood major sections are precovered with fabric - real woven cloth, featuring a simulated, hand-rubbed lacquer finish. Lightweight, it resists scratches, tears and punctures better than most films.

  • Roomy radio compartment simplifies installation of on-board components and provides space to install a fully detailed cockpit and pilot (both optional).

  • Uses authentic "barn door" ailerons to maximize realism. Dual aileron servos add precision and authority to control response for crisp maneuvers. The linkage simplicity makes aileron set-up a snap.

  • One-piece fiberglass cowl comes factory-painted to match the fabric covering and a precision-formed, ready-to-paint replica cylinder head is also included.

  • Includes an adjustable engine mount; premium-quality, Great Planes brand hardware; and decals for authentic markings and N-numbers.

  • Wood wing struts come pre-sanded into an airfoil shape. They provide a more authentic look than flat struts, and improve the model's flight performance by keeping drag to the absolute minimum.

  • 90-Day Warranty.

Specifications

  • Wingspan: 81" (2055mm)

  • Wing Area: 984 sq in (63.5 sq dm)

  • Wing Loading: 19.9 oz/sq ft (61 g-sq dm)

  • Fuselage Length: 49" (1245mm)

  • Weight: 8.5lb (3860g)

  • Airfoil: Clark Y-Type, Flat-Bottom, High-Wing

  • Center of Gravity: 4" (103mm) back from the leading edge of the wing.

  • Control Throws: High Rate Low Rate

  • Elevator: Up & Down 1-1/8" (28mm) 5/8" (16mm)

  • Ailerons: Up & Down ¾" (19mm) 9/16" (14mm)

  • Rudder: Right & Left 1½" (38mm) 1" (25mm)

Contents

  • Photo Illustrated Instruction Manual, Decals, One-Piece Pre-Painted Fiberglass Cowl, ABS Dummy Engines, Adjustable Engine Mount, Hardware Package, Factory-Built Fuselage, Wings and Tail Sections, 9.1oz (270cc Fuel Tank, Firm 3-3/8" Foam Tires Mounted on Cub Rims, Pre-Bent Wire Landing Gear, Pre-Built Wing Struts, Clear Butyrate Windshield and Side Windows, Pushrods, Tailwheel Wire w/1" Tailwheel, CA Hinge Strip.

Requirements

  • Engine: .40-.46 cu in (6.5-7.5cc, up to a mild .60-.65) 2-stroke or .52-.70 cu in (8.0-11.5cc) (4-Stroke) (52 for sea level only)

  • Muffler: Sport or Pitts Style to fit into the cowl

  • Radio: 4 Channel w/5 standard servos (specs per R&D 12/99)

  • Y-harness: 1 (for aileron servos)

  • Servo Extensions 12": 2 (for aileron servos)

  • Misc Items: Propeller, Medium Fuel Tubing, ¼" Latex Foam Rubber, Fueling System, 8-32 Tap/#29 Drill Bit, Building and Field Equipment, prop nut to match engine's crankshaft size.

Comments

  • The pilot figure shown in the picture is not included, use 1/5 scale.

  • Floats: This model does not have float mounts in it. The model would need to be modified to accept floats. The GPMQ1874 60-size Float Kit will work with this kit.

  • If a replacement fuel tank is needed the Great Planes 8oz, GPMQ4103 can be used. A separate section of plywood must be glued to the firewall to clear the lip on the replacement tank and the stopper hole redrilled in the firewall.

  • This model is larger than the GP 40-sized Cub. 40 cub kit accessories will not fit (e.g., Super Cub conversion)

  • To convert to electric power using Kontronik items use,

  • Motor: Tango 45-06 (KONG2300) or Fun 500-27 (KONG2461)

  • Battery: 38A @ 14 cells (16.8V) or 36A @ 12 cells (14.4V) if using Tango motor or, 31A @ 12 cells (14.4V) 29A @ 12 cells (14.4V) for Fun 500-27 motor

  • Aeronaut Prop: 13x7 or 14x8 if using Tango motor or 14x8 or 13x7 if using Fun motor

  • APC Prop: 13x6.5E (APCQ3065), or 14x7E (APCQ4145) for Tango motor or 14x7E (APCQ4145), or 13x6.5E (APCQ3065)

  • Speed Control: Jazz 40-6-18 (KONM3100)

  • Drive Set: Brushless Set 500 (KONG5040) if using Fun motor

  • About joining wings- pg.6 of instructions says to test fit the wing halves and to sand any high spots on the root end of the wings so there is no gap when you join them. If there is too large a gap to sand away, it may be shimmed with a piece of balsa and balsa filler or epoxy. The idea is that the wing is straight upon assembly, and has no twisting motion at the joint. Epoxy gives more weight than balsa filler, or micro balloon filler which can also be used to fill the gap. This wing is flat-bottom and can be assembled on a flat surface.

This is a great receiver! Bound to my JR Radio immediately. Great range, i was flying over a large river and could fly as far away as i could see (i have very good eyes) with no twitching or loss of signal. It even survived a failed elevator (hinges failed and ripped out the back, it was really windy) causing the plane to 'explode' in the water. Dried it out after washing it with R.O. water and it works like new, couldn't believe it survived! This is one tough little receiver!
