Nürnberg 2014: Super Cub S w/ SAFE Technology

All I can say is that it's about time.

The Super Cub has been a staple in our airplane line up for a long, long time. But the Anti-Crash Technology (ACT) on board didn't always work as advertised, easily fooled by changing light condidtions. But now that's no longer a worry, as Horizon has announced the HobbyZone Super Cub S with SAFE technology.

Unlike the ACT, SAFE technology works great to limit a pilot's flight envelope in the beginning stages of learning. As the pilot's skill grows, the SAFE system can be dialed back, allowing for more complex flight. It's a great system already in use on the Apprentice S and the HobbyZone Delta Ray. Add SAFE to the great flying characteristics of the Super Cub, and you've got a near perfect way to learn to fly.

The HobbyZone Super Cub S will sell as a Ready-to-Fly ($199.99) or Bind-N-Fly ($169.99), and will hit store shelves in late March or early April.
