The fun doesn't stop after you learn how to fly. It's lightweight yet durable air-frame is equipped with a powerful electric motor that delivers long flight times and provides plenty of speed and power to perform aerobatic maneuvers including loops, rolls and even inverted (upside down) flight. That means the Sport Cub S 2 is a model even experienced pilots will appreciate and enjoy flying – and can also use to teach others to fly. The Bind-N-Fly Basic version is the perfect choice for those pilots because it allows them to use their favorite Spektrum transmitter along with batteries and chargers they may already own. And the Ready-To-Fly version is perfect for first-time pilots because it includes a Spektrum controller/transmitter equipped with industry-leading DSMX 2.4GHz technology, AA batteries for the transmitter, plus a rechargeable LiPo flight battery and USB charger. That means there's nothing extra to buy or provide, just get flying! Best of all both versions arrive 100% factory-assembled – no assembly required.

My only two complaints that I have with this plane is its power and flimsy tail. This aircraft gets blown around in a 9mph wind very easily. In the "most help" mode, it was next to impossible to get the plane to come down in that level of wind; however, lower that to the "some help" or "no help" modes and that goes away, but still can get blown around. As for the tail, it was hard to get trimmed in, and is no where near as strong as a FliteTest build kit aircraft. For the most part you get no rudder control with but the elevators work just fine in the lower help modes.
Overall, this is a great little plane that I would recommend to anyone. Between the easiness of flying this aircraft and how tough it is. The downsides are not enough to even get me to give it a four star instead of five. This plane is great for first time pilots or those returning to the hobby!
This quarantine made me search for a new hobby and this is the first plane I ever flew(not counting video games) and I managed to get it in the air and fly around on the first try. Great battery life for its size and an all round great plane to learn how to fly.
Highly recommend if you are in the states, however if you're in europe the import fees end up being more expensive than the plane itself...
You just need to find a place out side with ZERO wind
too lite and engine underpowered
It’s an arc kite
One rough landing and the wing broke
