The Super Cub S with SAFE™ technology makes it easier than ever to teach yourself to fly.

The first choice for thousands, the HobbyZone® Super Cub has been one of the most popular trainer aircraft on the market thanks to its excellent looks and solid performance. This slow-flying, three-channel trainer makes adjusting to the sensation of flight an easy process. Horizon Hobby has integrated the revolutionary SAFE™ technology system into the Super Cub S to make it easier than ever to teach yourself to fly. With SAFE technology, pilots can fly the Super Cub S in three flight modes and have the option to use the intuitive panic button at any time to return the Super Cub S to steady flight at the push of a button. Beyond being a great way to learn how to fly, the Super Cub S RTF includes the sophisticated Spektrum™ DXe 2.4GHz DSMX® transmitter, which supports both Spektrum DSM2® and DSMX receivers. The DXe can also be used with other RC aircraft as a pilot’s skills progress.


  • Three-channel control and slow flight provide an excellent teach-yourself-to-fly experience
  • Intuitive SAFE™ technology provides three modes to give new pilots the ultimate progressive learning experience
  • If you lose control of the airplane, "Panic Mode" returns the aircraft to stable, level flight with the push of a button
  • Beginner and intermediate modes provide support for new pilots by limiting the roll and pitch of the airplane, keeping you in control at all times
  • Experienced mode allows pilots who have mastered the basics to explore the incredible performance of the Super Cub S aircraft supported by the revolutionary AS3X® stabilization system
  • Everything you need to teach yourself to fly in one box, even the "AA" batteries for the transmitter
  • The included full-Range Spektrum™ DXe 2.4GHz DSMX® transmitter can be used with a variety of other Spektrum-equipped products
  • Impact-resistant, durable Z-Foam™ construction is extraordinarily tough; but in case of damage, you can make repairs with almost any glue and be back in the air in minutes
