HobbyZone’s Innovative Anti-Crash Technology

The latest breakthrough in RC flight, Anti-Crash Technologyâ„¢ (ACT) makes teaching yourself to fly easier and safer than ever before. With ACT, anyone can fly.

Here’s how it works:

Two sensors on the Super Cub.,one on the top and one on the bottom of the fuselage, monitor the position of the plane in relation to the ground. When the plane is flying level, the top sensor sees the sky, while the bottom sees the ground, and they tell the onboard computer that the plane is flying correctly. If the plane enters a dive and the sensors detect that the plane’s orientation is incorrect, the system will automatically correct the control inputs and help prevent the plane from crashing, allowing you time to regain control. ACT lets you fly without worry. And once you’ve gained experience with your Super Cub, you can turn ACT off for more complete control and increased maneuverability.

Tech Notes

You will need…You don’t need anything to get your Super Cub airborne. Just charge the included battery pack, attach the wing, vertical tail stab and landing gear, and load the AA batteries into the transmitter. Before you know it, you’ll be ready to go.
