Getting to places that no other aircraft dare go, the Shock Cub was built for pure adventure and continues to wow with its incredible short take-off and landing capability, classic Piper looks and chunky tundra tyres. It’s the epitome of the perfect outback aeroplane, small, light, agile, tough and oh-so versatile. It’s no wonder that Seagull has decided to replicate it, and what an impressive thing this striking 1:3.5-scale model really is. Spanning a head-turning 102 inches with a huge wing area, slats, flaps, fences and all the fixtures and fittings you can shake a stick at, this is a model for discerning R/C pilots and those who truly appreciate the delight of slow speed flight and operating on the very edge of the aerodynamic envelope. But that’s not all, build quality is exceptional, the covering beautifully applied and the metalwork a leap ahead in both design, engineering quality and assembly. Take a closer look, you’ll be glad you did.
