The two-piece wings with folding wing struts and removable stabs allow for convenient transportation and set up. It comes with multiple scale details including a scale, sprung undercarriage that uses a solid machined damper with heavy duty springs as per the full scale aircraft, cockpit panel, tow release, super scale tail wheel assembly, and more meaning this Carbon Cub will turn heads everywhere you fly it.

The FX-3 Carbon Cub 100-200ccm is a big scale project from Hangar 9.The kit was designed so that every average RC model maker and pilot can fulfill their own dream of a superb big-scale model.
Great importance was attached to strength, suitability for everyday use.Parts such as undercarriage, shock absorbers, wheels and tail wheel assembly have not only been designed to be scale, but have also been designed to be particularly stable and can withstand a harder landing or rough terrain without any damage. Furthermore, wings, wing tubes and wing struts were dimensioned to meet all loads in flight.
With this construction, attention was not paid to staying below the 25 kg mark by all means. Rather, the customer can build a great and durable big-scale model from this kit, the quality and equipment of which leave nothing to be desired and, depending on the engine, can achieve a flight weight of 25-27 kg.
The experienced professional model builder can achieve a flight weight of less than 25 kg by exchanging or modifying individual components and equipment, but the model must then also be handled and operated accordingly.
At an impressive 165" wingspan, the Hangar 9 Carbon Cub FX-3 is the largest Hangar 9 Cub ever done for an incredible giant-scale experience with adventure-driven capability.
Laser-cut, lightweight balsa and plywood construction is utilized to bring the FX-3 to life as a durable scale model that's expertly built to exacting standards.
The FX-3 is designed to accept popular 2-stroke and 4-stroke gasoline engines. All hardware for the recommended power system options is included so assembly is easy and so you can get in the air faster.
The optional-use operational tow release lets this Cub be the perfect companion for your sailplane needs.
This Hangar 9 Carbon Cub features impressive details including 8.5" inch tires, high-density LED lights, working cockpit side door, cockpit details such as a scale dash panel, super scale tail wheel assembly, and more.
