approximate flight battery power remaining via multiple LEDs on the DXS
transmitter included with the RTF version. The addition of exclusive
Spektrum Smart components including a lithium polymer (LiPo) battery and
charger make it more convenient to charge properly and safely (battery

The Ready-To-Fly (RTF) version includes everything needed to fly in
one box, and is the perfect choice if you're a new RC pilot. From the
Spektrum DXS 2.4GHz transmitter you can use with other Bind-N-Fly®
(BNF) and BNF Basic aircraft after you learn to fly the Carbon Cub S 2,

and the convenient S120 USB-C Smart charger that can be used with a
variety of USB power sources, there's nothing extra you need to buy or
provide! A BNF Basic version is also available for experienced pilots
who want to use their favorite Spektrum transmitter along with batteries
and chargers they may already own. And for both versions, the powerful
and efficient brushless power system including a telemetry-capable ESC,
plus the flight controller, receiver and servos, are all
factory-installed in the durable EPO airframe that assembles quickly and
easily without the need for glue or special tools.

Durable Design

Construction with advanced EPO material delivers a lightweight yet

a full line of replacement parts is readily available.

The Carbon Cub S 2 arrives mostly factory-assembled with the power
system, servos plus the flight controller and receiver installed. All
you need to do is finish some quick and easy final assembly, without the
use of glue or special tools, and you'll be ready to fly in less time
than it takes to charge a battery!

Versatile Gear Options

Thick grass, gravel paths, dirt trails; you can fly from these and
many other surfaces that are impossible for most models of this size to
handle. The robust landing gear is equipped with oversized tires that
soak up the bumps of rough surfaces and provide excellent prop
clearance. The optional float set (sold separately) takes just a few
minutes to install and all the necessary hardware is included with the
aircraft and float set so you can fly from lakes and ponds.

Optional Flaps

Functional flaps are an option for improved slow speed handling
and even shorter takeoffs and landings. This feature requires a 7+
channel computer transmitter plus a flap servo and a servo extension
(sold separately).

Optional Landing Assist Sensor for Smoother Landings

The Spektrum Landing Assist Sensor (LAS) is easy to install and
provides automatic "flare" control to help inexperienced pilots "grease"
landings by minimizing or completely eliminating bouncing (works over
many/most surfaces and provides optimum performance when flying
over/landing in grass).
