Description Technical Specs Important Information
 
The E-flite UMX Carbon Cub SS is a feature-rich scale BNF model that offers performance that's an escape from the ordinary. Like the full-size Cub Crafters marvel, it's an immortal classic made more versatile than ever thanks to its high-output brushless power system and fully-functional flaps. Simply a joy to fly, you'll be able to leap from tight spots and cruise the landscape with confidence. Large credit for its gentle manners go to the onboard AS3X System that makes handling super-smooth, even in moderate winds.

Unlike anything offered in its class, you'll discover agility that's rock solid—especially when diving in on that postage stamp called a runway. The UMX Carbon Cub SS is ready in just a few minutes. Just charge the included Li-Po battery and bind to your own full-range DSM2/DSMX 4-channel transmitter, such as the Spektrum DX4e. Go for a total bush-flying adventure and swap the stock landing gear for the optional E-flite custom float set (EFLUA1190) or expand your RC horizons with a friend and employ the top-mounted UMX sailplane tow hook.

E-Flite UMX Carbon Cub November 20, 2012
Reviewer: Paul J S from Medford, NY United States  
The "Cub" shipped to me came with it's 2 cell 180 mAh Lipo battery and its unique charger with aligator clips instead of a handy wall plug. I was able to use a 12 V adapter from another charger which worked fine with the Carbon Cub charger. There was not an extra prop in my box ! I have come to expect a spare prop included with BNF airplanes. The little plane performed well, even in an 8 mph wind.;the AX3S Gyro system lending noticeable stability! Be sure to read the manual to learn about adjusting the flaps; they are controlled with the "gear" channel! I like the broad, soft tires on it's landing gear. The Carbon Cub is an enjoyable step up from the average "micro" plane out there.

Carbon Cub November 20, 2012
Reviewer: John from Norwood, MA United States  
Quality is decreasing at E-Flite. I have over a dozen E-Flite planes that were great. I had problems with last 2 out of 3 planes. There pushing out new planes too fast. The Cub had battery hatch magnet off,left wing spar off,paint poor,and ASX not tuned properly creating plane that was less stable than without it.

Amazing September 26, 2012
Reviewer: Samuel from Aspen, CO United States  
Well, I have to say I was a little skeptical about the claims about the AS3X stabilization system and when I opened up the box and looked at this little plane (after spending $170), I said no way. Then I took it out (0 assembly required by the way) and just let it rip and was blown away. If you are a novice- intermediate pilot, it is truly confidence inspiring. I was doing some of my first knife edges I've ever done well after a couple of flights. It flies like it's on rails. I tried it in 10mph winds that were gusting and it still is unbelievably stable for plane this small.  

Just a couple of suggestions and picks, make sure you have a dc converter for the charger.  It is a somewhat fragile plane for transport so keep the box! makes a great carrying case. I wish the floats (which are an ex accessory) were easier to put on and take off but that's really the one drawback about this great little plane.  Any plans for a large scale version? I'll buy it now.

Awecome UM plane! August 26, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Brooklyn, NY  
This plane is very good against a good gust of wind with the new AS3X System. The landing lights along with the flaps are a great addition to the tiny plane. It flies great and is definitely worth the price.
