These radio controlled aircraft have a wing span of 18 feet (216 inches) and are designed for the 3W-275cc engine but Azza and Sonny used the ZDZ 420B4-J. The weight is approximately 94-96 pounds.
While flying the Clipped Wing Cub is smooth, stable, and responsive as the big one. Basic aerobatic maneuvers such as loops, rolls, spins, and snaps are easy. A beautiful model of a truly special airplane!
This is a great aerobatic performing airplane that is capable of almost anything. There is a canister area built into the fuselage for those of you who like a quieter foot print. These beasts are powered by the flat four cylinder ZDZ 530 petrol engines with a lot of power fo all manouvres.///Essential RC
