Video Overview

The new Multiplex FunCub XL expands all the fun enjoyed by thousands with the original FunCub, in a new larger size! Featuring the same high-wing aerobatic performance, offset flaps for incredibly short takeoff and landing characteristics, and big, soft tundra tires, the FunCub XL lets you fly almost anywhere, from nearly any terrain. Just like its smaller brother, the FunCub XL features the same oversized control surfaces, loads of power and precise, balanced handling for unlimited aerobatic flight, including horizon-to-horizon knife edge passes, endless vertical, and thrilling torque rolls. Setting new standards in its class, with numerous innovative design solutions, the XL also incorporates Multiplex’s "M-Frame technology,” providing a remarkably high-strength fuselage with lightweight carbon tube spars, two-piece wing and quick-release strut fittings for easy field assembly. In addition to the popular aero tow release, an optional elegant LED MULTILight kit make it an absolute eye-catching aerial wonder. The internal cargo bay is perfect for candy drops or lofting Alfred the Parachutist! To bring the endless fun to any terrain, an optional float kit is available!

  1. Wildly Fun 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Aug 2018

    Very easy to build and absolutely Awesome to fly. Parts fit is perfect and straightforward, typical for Multiplex. Just read the instructions and it is a breeze. I used a Scorpion 4020-540KV motor on 6S (4200mah) and 100 amp ESC (not the recommended motor). This gives 300 watts per pound and the plane is wildly aerobatic. Motor mount needs modification to the bolt pattern to fit, but this is fairly simple for most adept modelers. This plane is also used for aerotowing and has towed 8-9 pound (3.5 -3.7 meter) sailplanes. Lands easily and flies terrific. With 100's of flights on it so far it is holding up great and still a superb plane to fly. I'm sure the stock motor would also work nicely, but we needed lots of power for towing large sailplanes. The plane balances perfectly with the above setup and weighs only 99 oz; 2oz less than advertised. Great plane all around. You will not be disappointed.

  2. fun cub XL 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2017

    Multiplex makes great products.I have almost every one of their airplanes .I really like my Fun Cub.Now I am building the Fun Cub XL. I`m one of those builders that opens the box and starts putting the kit together.All of the previous Multiplex airplanes had All of the parts in the box.Not the XL though.Missing screws,washers,2 right side upper cowl fairings,and the left side completely missing.On top of that,You can`t even buy the float kit or the lighting kit for the plane yet.At least wherever Hitec products are sold online.Weekender Warehouse is the only place online I have seen this airplane for sale.Model Aviation recently did a review on the receiver ready version in the January 2017 issue.Right now as of this review I am waiting to see if the lighting kit is available and the motor I am going to use in it.

    OUTSTANDING! Great parts fit,landing gear,, quick strut release solid strong airframe, I installed a 46/55 size 460kv motor ,80 Amp ESC,
    and fly on a 3300 6s,and added the working cargo doors. I am even more impressed with the
    excellent flight performance. Best CUB ,I've ever owned and flew.

  5. Flies great! 3 Star Review

    There are a million pieces to this kit, quite complicated build. Would get receiver ready next time but it flies great.

  6. Kit review 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2016

    First impressions as just received kit this week...have built several MPX Elapor kits and the XL is similar, but bigger and more complex. Wish MPX would organize small parts (e.g., hardware) better and/or provide clearer pictures as identification is a real challenge. Should be able to sort everything out, but very time consuming. Spend the extra $$$ and get the RR version unless you're a hard core kit builder and VERY organized. Will post further thoughts as I get farther along in the build.

  7. Fun Cubs Great Flyers 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jun 2016

    Well boxed, lots of parts. Well documented manual with a few errors. Good pictures with great detail. Waiting for the light set to complete build.

  8. Fun Cub's Big Brother 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th May 2016

    All parts arrived undamaged and on time. All components were neatly packed and small parts were in zip-lock bags. The only modification I had to do was the motor mount. I am using a Torque brushless motor. The directions and photos were very helpful.
