Manuals

Aimed at the scale electric enthusiast, the J-3 Cub 25 ARF from E-flite is at the top of its class for scale appearance and performance, including scale ailerons—the only J-3 Cub on the market to have that feature.

This is the only 25-size Cub with scale ailerons. Quality balsa and light plywood construction make for a sturdy, lightweight airframe that handles incredibly well in most flying situations. The firewall is set up for use with an outrunner motor, such as E-flite’s Power 25, making a perfect power match for the airframe. Optional floats add a new dimension to the scale flying experience, and the one-piece wing allows for easy transportation to and from virtually any flying field, pond or lake.

 

Features

  • Outstanding scale detail, including the factory-painted fiberglass cowl with molded engine detail
  • Scale aileron design sets the E-flite® J-3 Cub apart from other 25-size electric Cubs on the market
  • E-flite's optional 25-size floats are easy to assemble and attach to the J-3 Cub, and offer thrilling performance during water taxi and takeoff
  • Built-in float mounts
  • Removable one-piece wing for fast transition to the flying field
  • Factory-painted landing gear with authentic Cub wheel caps
  • Quality balsa and light plywood construction, and genuine UltraCote® covering
  • Outrunner-ready firewall—perfect match for E-flite’s Power 25 Outrunner, 870Kv
  • Flies great with Li-Po (THP42003S2PPL) or Ni-MH (EFLB4010) packs

Bulletins

This Advisory only Applies if using EFLB312B ESC which does not have a Switch-mode BEC and was orginally recommended.  We now recommend purchaisng our EFLA1040 40A Pro.

 

Important Note

We have found, during continued flight testing, the possibility of a rx/servo current overload to the BEC in the speed control, causing the motor and radio to shut down in flight. This has typically happened on extreme high temperature days with continuous extreme flight control inputs. Most speed controls on the market today are designed for use with 4 sub-micro servos with relatively low current draw, like the E-flite S75. The newer sub-micro digital servos, as well as most micro and mini servos, have a higher current draw and can cause a BEC to shut down due to high temperatures. In order to provide the most reliable product, E-flite recommends the use of a separate BEC (like the Ultimate BEC), or receiver pack and switch using the following items to ensure trouble-free operation:

(1)     Expert 720mAh Ni-MH 4.8V receiver battery (EXRB100)

(2)     Expert Standard Switch (EXRA050)

Use these items to power the receiver and servos after disabling the BEC on the ESC (by following the instructions included with the ESC).

E-flite does NOT recommend using the speed controller’s BEC in the applications described above.
