Although designed as rubber powered free flight models some people choose not to fly these but instead build them as a beautiful covered or uncovered display model. With the increased popularity of Slow and Park Flyer airplanes experienced modelers have converted these to small flying radio controlled aircraft.

Instructions are not included for converting these airplanes to radio controlled aircraft. But it is a natural project for the experienced modeler because the stable flight characteristics associated to free flight models make good Slow and ParkFlyer aircraft. Typically only rudder, elevator and motor control are added using micro servos and receiver. Use 280-size motors geared or direct up to 400-size direct for the Piper J-3 Cub.
