This excellent Micro J3 is a ready to fly model complete with everything you need to get going, the model is pre-built and pre-bound to the included 2.4ghz transmitter, all you need to do is push the under-carriage into it's mount, charge your included lipoly battery from the port on the included transmitter and you are up and away with this great looking back-yard micro model.
The J3 not only looks great, it flies great, so much so we would advise you to get yourself a few more batteries, this Cub is just so much fun! Also included are your transmitter batteries and a spare prop, the box also doubles up as a handy carry case, this is a great little package RTF Micro at a fantastic price, the perfect intro to indoor and back-yard Flying!
If hobbyKing has itemn's in the Aussy warehouse and even states cheep delivery cost, why does everything come from overseas? I buy an item for less than $50.00 but it costs $30.00 more for postage? I don't follow.
So mine showed up broken.. Servos make noise but do not move the control surfaces ( sounds stuck).. What is the easiest way to get in there and work on this thing, remove the wing (it seems glued down)
Hi Jason, I read here another guy's story saying he had the similar problem but he kept on turning off and on his tx and plane until it finally worked.
Before you cut open the plane try this for a few more times and try even to rebind the plane.
Hope it works!
so can I use the micro jst parallel charge leads (6 plugs) for this battery and the Turnigy nano-tech 160mah 1S 25~40C Lipo Pack (Kyosho, E-flite Nano CP X, ******** Etc.)? and what cheap charger can charge this for a reasonable amount of time?
Not so good here. I got one of these the other day. The servos only travel half their throw, or less, and the control surfaces hardly moved. I couldn't do much about the servos, so I replaced the control horns with much shorter ones. More movement now. I had to tape a large washer to the front to bring the CG ahead and it still wallows unmanageably on turns. I suspect it may be too slow and borderline tip stalling or the rudder may be too small. I have a micro Flyzone Cub similar to this which works (until I mostly wore it out) like a dream. Then again, it was twice the cost. I'll keep flatulating with this one, but I suspect it's going to be prematurely broken up into other projects.
Having fun with my Bixler though.
mine works perfectly, control surfaces moves a little but its enough to make turns and take off..i think the key here is to replace the power system...i try to upload a vid showing how this plane fly with a new motor..but no success...any help is much appreciated..
I worked on it some, power is the key, the thing barely had what it needed for level flight. Tack on a washer on the nose for CG, and not enough power to fly anymore. Thanks for offering to help on swapping engines, I'm good, new to rc, not to tinkering. Sorry I can't help about the video. Let you know haw an engine swap goes when I do it.
glenn_mech, na try mo na bang mag order ng plane kit dito? planning to buy bixler2 kaso nag aalala ako baka ma hold sa customs ang package, medyo malaki kasi. ikaw lang naalala ko na taga province with rc plane. :)
I had the very same problem with mine, I thought it was a dud. but, i just kept binding it over and over again and eventually it worked! have about 30 flights on it now and it still works perfectly! Hopefully this will work for you as well. Best of luck!
One day i was toying around with mine, when it was turned off i has moved this counter-sunk switch from "2" to "1" then turned the TX on then plugged in the flight battery and BAM! it was working as mode 1! although you would probably want to open the TX and remove the spring from the right hand stick and install it on the left hand one. hopefully its that easy for you as well!! If not, just reply and ill go through it again to make sure i have it correct!
Do you have throttle control? if you do, its likley a servo problem. if no throttle control, the RX, TX or both could be at fault. Either way you will no doubt have to look at opening up the fuse, send it back to HK or set it somwhere as a static display model.
First, turn on the TX then move the throttle fully up then down. Next, connect the flight battery to the airplane, a red light should be seen shining through the fuse. it should flash first then stay solid, if it does the bind was successful. Hope this helps!
I received one on Friday 15/2 I cannot get the rudder or the elevator to work, dead as! Tried new battery's recharge and the "match frequency" problem solve. No Joy. Am I missing something and if not where to now?
I had the very same problem with mine, I went through the bind procedure about 6 times and it started working and it's been great since. Another possibility is that glue had got into the servo, if that's the case you'd have to open up the fuse in order to get at them. Good luck!
Fantastic little plane for newbies. Unfortunately its time has ended for me after 3 days of flying :( . A few to many rough landings resulted in a bent/loose propeller shaft. Oh well it was a blast, and im glad i bought this little cheep-o instead of a more expensive plane to start out on. Onto the next plane i guess unless anyone has any solutions to my problem..
I have this unit , after a few flight, the engine stalled and will no longer give power to lift the airplane.I already purchase the one H.K selling, the one with engine mount, gear box and motor, made by nine eagle. I hope it will last longer than the original set up.
Just got this in today. Everything works except for the rudder servo :/ I really don't want to send it back, i would much rather buy a new servo if that is even possible?
Ps. how do you even get into the plane?
Norbit84 I must agree. Many hinges, for foamies are tape. I do recommend you use a good quality tape. You can buy tape here (1/2" wide x 4m -3M Blenderm Tape SKU: 9171000114) or any good branded tape like 3m. Tare!
I used clear contact its a little more flexible than tape its the stuff we used to cover our books at school with.

Got this plane in and it arrived in great shape. Took it to indoor and it flew great! The transmitter is a good size and feels good to handle(not like the wierd ones in the parkzone stuff). The transmitter is just a 3 channel with only throttle on the left stick. The motor has a good bit of power for indoor and could probably loop the plane with a dive entry. The finish of the plane is VERY good with some nice detail like plastic dummy motor and molded rib detail on the wing and tail. One draw back is the tail wheel which is in a weird area too far forward n the fuse(I hot glued it to the rudder where it belongs which also gave it better ground handling).I will be adding fairings to the landing gear for scale and maybe some light wing struts.

ma carino e si comporta bene, non pensavo che superasse i 2 minuti di volo, e invece l'ho lanciato in un vento proibitivo e sono riuscito a portarlo a casa intero!!
Attenzione però, la rado è in mode 2 e NON può essere convertita in mode 1( a differenza di quanto scritto nelle caratteristiche!).La trasmittente ha un interruttore per il passaggio da 2 a 1 ma gli stick non possono essere modificati a meno di non mettere mano al saldatore (cosa che ancora non ho fatto ma intendo provare ).
Altra osservazione : l'attacco batteria non è esattamente uguale a quello sulle batterie Turginy www.link ,ovvero non si possono ricaricare attraverso la radio . Comunque la cosa è risolvibile acquistando dei cavetti di prolunga www.link se si vole utilizzare la ricarica dalla TX ) e/o un cavetto per la ricarica multipla www.link se si vuole usare un CB normale , consigliato).
In tutti i casi se volete un modellino da palestra o da mandare al giardinetto dietro casa l'acquisto è consigliato.

this is an AMAZING deal. it is as easy to fly and durable as the p a r k z o n e micro j3, slightly (a couple inches) bigger, more powerful, and HALF THE PRICE!!! how are parkzone selling ANY of their micro cubs? and HOW is this not backordered? i ordered one for my friend's birthday, and ordered another at the same time for myself so we can do streamer combat. BUY IT NOW! and no, i do not work for hobbyking.

This is my first plane, and as a beginner I can say that it is a great plane to start flying, it is strong enough to fly outside but in very, very light wind conditions the plane is very light! and the flying time is around 10 good minutes, the wing and main structure are strong but the tail ( rudder and elevator ) are a bit weak, due to the size and thickness of the push rods and the foam. I broke the tail during a landing but I made another one with balsa wood and better push rods. I fly very well and I'm sure that everybody can fly it!!! great start and good product !
