    Sport Cub S Connection Issues Not Covered By Manual

    I have owned a Sport Cub S for about 2 years now, but it has not seen a lot of flying. I went to open it to fix a prop shaft that I had bent, and in opening it, I discovered a thin, red cable that only had one connection point. Is this the antenna for controller binding? Also, whenever I try to...

    Help! Sport Cub S Ailerons suddenly moving in same direction at the same time

    Friends, I need some assistance. My Sport Cub S suddenly started doing something funny. When you trigger the ailerons either left or right on the controller (Dx6i) both of the ailerons go up and down together! Obviously no way to fly it like that. Any idea what is going on? I have tried...

    Help! New Sport Cub S - bind light won’t blink / binding won’t initiate

    Hello all, I’m on my second sport cub s and out of the box the bind light won’t come on/blink to initiate binding. It flashes once when I put the battery in but won’t blink like it’s supposed to when set on a level surface. I read in another forum to elevate the tail wheel on a magazine or...

    Hello! I'm fairly new to airplanes and recently picked up the sport cub s bnf and a DX6 transmitter. I got home and excitedly opened both packages, but I soon realized I was out of my skill level with programming the transmitter to fit the airplane. I tried looking up videos to show me how to...

    How long should I be flying?

    Just a quick question, so on my Sport Cub S BNF Trainer, the manual says to set a timer for 5-6 minutes before you come down. Now I'm pretty sure that's just a precaution just to be safe. I've seen on YouTube people fly for about 11 minutes with the Sport Cub S before coming down, so just how...

    Capt_Beavis' Quick Noob Plane Reviews.

    Hobby Zone Champ RTF: This plane is obsolete with the introduction of the much better Sport Cub S. A lot of people have learned to fly on this plane but I wasn't one of them. My Champ would nose dive into the ground and not recover on almost every flight. I think I only had one or two short...
