Pro SAFE technology
When the transmitter is switched to beginner mode, sensor assisted flight envelope technology (SAFETM) keeps turns from being too sharp, keeps the plane from nosediving, and returns the plane to level flight when no input is being received. Essentially, SAFE technology compensates for lack of skill and helps beginners develop better flying habits.
Pro Great transmitter
This plane comes with the Spektrum™ DX4e 4-channel 2.4GHz DSMX transmitter. This transmitter can be used with other aircraft, so it is possible that it can save money in the future.
Pro Made with Z foam
Super Cub S RTF is made with a dense, durable substance called Z foam. This material is very easy to repair because it can be used with common types of glue.
Pro Three modes
Suber Cub S RTF comes with beginner, intermediate, and experienced modes. The beginner mode is most limited, and experienced mode allows the most freedom.
Pro Panic switch
If the plane is quickly headed for the ground, the plane can immediately be returned to normal flight using the panic switch. For beginners, this is a feature that can save the Super Cub S RTF from many crashes.
Con Unimpressive speed
Super Cub S RTF is not one of the fastest RC planes around.
