Hangar 9 Offers the RC airplane enthusiast, a wide range of ARF RC planes, as well as RTF models. Descriptions of the most popular models, with photos and specifications.
Hangar 9 is a division of Horizon Hobby, who service hobby shops in over 50 countries, around the world.
They specialize in glow or gas RC planes, although many of the later kits include full instructions on how to convert to electric RC planes.
The majority of the models are ARF RC airplanes, although there are a few RTF RC planes. Note that the RTF (Ready To Fly) types include everything required to fly, including an RC transmitter. The third type is the BNF (Bind-aNd-Fly) model. These generally require just a suitable 2.4GHz transmitter to enable you to go and fly!
Construction is of conventional, laser-cut balsa and ply and covering material is normally UltraCote. If you suffer a mishap and require some spare parts, then a wide range of spares are available.
The complete range of RC airplanes is covered, from beginner RC airplanes to scale model aircraft, models for RC aerobatics (including 3D) as well as general sport flyers.
Some of the latest offerings, are true giant scale RC airplanes. The photo above is of the new 33% Piper Pawnee 80cc ARF, that comes in 3 huge boxes!
