Supercub1

The guys over at ASDG has released a Super Cub for the X Plane platform based on the PA-18. Aircraft was first introduced in 1949 by Piper Aircraft with pieces from the PA-11 and the J-3 to the Taylor E-2 Cub of the 1930s. Over 40 years a total of 9000 aircrafts was made which is impressive.

Since that huge success it’s been modified in different ways which ASDG wants to bring into the simulator. It comes with both the original and a modern experimental version. Whether you’re flying bush, glider towing or just having real fun this is the aircraft for you.

Whole aircraft comes with 4K textures and it uses the famous PBR system. Flight model is modelled by Rush. Exact models to choose from:

  • 150HP Super Cub (PA-18-150)
  • 150HP Super Cub (PA-18-150) with Tundra Tires
  • 180HP Experimental Super Cub with Tundra Tires (Constant Speed Prop)

  1. That’s awesome!

    So that must be the airplane REP was teasing us about, unless they still plan to make one entirely by themselves… either way they’re well on the path of A2A.

    The quality of the aircraft seems pretty good which is a nice change from Carenado, I’m looking forward to a review on that new add-on! I think that once SimCoders do their own aircraft (or find a good partner, perhaps this is the case here), they’ll really have a chance to be on par with A2A on X-Plane.

  2. I love how the vendor site displays “73 in stock” :p

    Only reason keeping me back is the apparent lack of documentation, especially on models that have an unusual engine, what you can find on Avialogs and elsewhere is for the Lycoming-equipped 150 model.

    From the reviews here and there, it seems very good except perhaps the stall behaviour (I wasn’t convinced by the 172 either), but REP is pretty reactive and will probably help fixing that, unless they are completely disconnected from ASDG. And the opinion wasn’t from an actual Super Cub pilot, so this has to be interpreted with care.
