* Required Fields


The Piper J-3 Cub is an American light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947 By the Piper Aircraft Company as an affordable trainer. The aircraft has a simple, lightweight design which gives it good low-speed handling properties and short-field performance. During the WWII, J-3 Cub was designated as L-4 Grasshopper, used extensively for reconnaissance, transporting supplies, artillery spotting duties and medical evacuation of wounded soldiers.
Like its full-sized counterpart, the all-new FMS 1400mm J-3 V3 has excellent short takeoff and landing (STOL) and slow speed handling characteristics. FMS has dedicated significant amount of resources in making this aircraft as detailed as possible- components such as the engine and landing gear, among many others, are replicated in loving detail. Something worth noting is that FMS has made scale floats for the Cub as a response to popular demand from the community.
To mix things up a little, FMS has selected an attractive, historically accurate red paint scheme for the V3 Cub. Not all J-3’s were yellow!
For pilots who are looking for an easy-to-fly, scale aircraft that has gentle trainer characteristics, plenty of power and graceful lines from the golden-age of flight- the 1400mm FMS J-3 V3 is all of that, and more.
Powerful 3536-850KV motor, Predator 40A ESC
Highly detailed scale engine and landing gear

I love this plane. I installed a flight controller from a carbon cub s+ in a pnp version. It flies beautifully, just like my carbon cub, with safe mode.

Is the clear panel above the canopy (between the wings) removable?

Yes, it can be removed.

The instruction manual calls for the battery to be installed under the canopy. There is another compartment to the rear of the canopy compartment that seems more suited for the battery. Which compartment is the correct one?
6 months ago by Ray

Hi Ray,
The battery to be installed under the canopy. Apply hook and loop tape to the battery.
Note: The center of gravity can be adjusted by moving the battery forward or aft.

Superb plane! I used to own a real Piper L-4 and would like to make two suggestions to make it perfect, move the pilot to the rear seat (real cubs never solo from the front), and place one gas cap on the fuel tank on cowl, not on top of the wings.

Hi Matt,
Thank you very much for your suggestion. We will feedback to our leaders and R&D department, and will do the better job in the future. Thanks for your support.

Can the Pilot be moved to the rear seat position, or can a second pilot be added? (Real J3 Cubs have to be flown from the rear when there is only one pilot.)
1 years ago by Matt

Hi Matt,
Yes, the Pilot can be moved, it is fixed with glue and can be removed by wiping it with alcohol.
