The first work on the design of the airplane Zlin Savage Cub Czech aircraft manufacturers began to 2006 year. Externally, the design of this aircraft is very similar to the model Piper Cub, but it was made by designers for the purpose of self-promotion of the aircraft, however, and in practice, and technically the plane is more perfect, which is reflected in its flight characteristics, although, in fact, in the cabin of the aircraft can still only accommodate two people.

For the first time in the air, the model aircraft has risen in the year 2009, in this case, its capabilities furor among German participants aerofestivalya on which plane the first time and made his debut. Due to the great success, the project was put into production, where, thanks to their simple design, it proved to be very low cost, which has led to the popularization of large current model.
