The Piper J-3 flying model airplane kit is available in plastic, balsa wood, or form construction. Of these three both balsa and form construction are the easiest and quickest to make repairs on, even in some instances allowing the modeler to make some repairs out on location or at competition rallies and get back to flying in a relatively short period of time.
The plastic version of the Piper J-3 kits on the other hand are more difficult to repair and sometimes even impossible to repair because of the plastic's brittleness. When repairs can be made it often requires some disassemble, then gluing, and then reassembly, all of which can take a whole day to perform a repair. This of course means lost flying time for you and your Piper J-3 airplane.
The J-3 Flying model airplane kits can also be found in either radio or line controlled configurations. This point alone can help you decide on which type of mode to buy. If you, or the person you might be buying a flying model for, are a novice to flying models then it may be best to purchase a line controlled Piper J-3. If you are experienced in radio controlled flying models then there are many flying model airplanes to choose from that operate using a hand held radio controller.
Prices for the Piper J-3 flying model airplane can be expensive depending on the scale and controlling device used to fly it. Many kits large. So whoever is building will need the space to build it. Also, because of these large sizes they can't be flown in the backyard of a residential area. These large Piper J-3 flying model airplane kits are designed to be flown in large open areas where there are no dangers of electrical lines, trees, and people walking around.
