Hangar 9 is famous for its reputation of making excellent sport scale models of popular airplanes. Their newest is a replica of the very popular Vans Aircraft RV-8. The model is constructed from lightweight balsa and plywood. Assembling it is simple because much of the work has already been completed, such as control surfaces that have been pre-hinged and control horns that have already been installed. It also has a very attractive scale trim scheme that is easy to see in the sky. Engines for this bird will range from a 46 two-stroke up to a 62 four-stroke. The model has a number of interesting features, including a large cockpit that is going to give you opportunities to add even more scale detail. Sport pilots will find that the flight performance is excellent, as seen in our video.
