Expert Horizon Hobby pilot Ali Machinchy’s latest release, the RV-4 30cc, features the outstanding level of detail only found in Hangar 9 ARF models. Assembly is straight-forward and pilots of all skill levels will enjoy assembling this highly refined ARF kit.
In the early 1970s, Van’s RV-4 was a completely new design of aircraft. But why change something that isn’t broken? The reason - A preference to tandem seating over the single-seater RV3. The full-size RV4’s excellent sport aerobatic performance was attributed to the 160hp engines often chosen to propel them at over 300kmh. Like the full-size RV4-, the balance and stability of the 30cc R/C model are virtually unmatched by any other sports aircraft on the market today. The flight performance gives pilots of varying skill levels a large scale experience like no other.
Suited to both gas and electric, once you’re in the air, you’ll be truly satisfied by its forgiving flight characteristics and wide flight envelope.
Modellers of all skill levels will appreciate the lengths Hangar 9 have gone to in ensuring the most fanatical modeller is satisfied with its level of details. Functioning flaps with scale hinges, pre-installed landing lights and a well-detailed cockpit ensure Van’s RV4 checks all the boxes.
The quality laser cut balsa and ply construction means Hangar 9 Van’s RV-4 is lightweight a real pleasure to fly. Naturally, the Hangar 9’s Ultracote is the choice of covering.
Whether gas or electric tickles your fancy, the RV-4 has you covered. Hardware is included for both types of power plant.
Don’t let the RV-4’s 85” span fool you. Transport to the field and assembly, once you're there, is very straight forward. Two piece wing and tail plug into the fuselage with the greatest of ease. The large top hatch makes replacement batteries ever so easy.
