Hangar 9 Christen Eagle

Mar 08, 2012 8 Comments by

Aerobatic biplanes are always a favorite of any pilot, and the bright color scheme of the Christen Eagle puts it right up at the top of favorite planes.  The new Christen Eagle from Hangar 9 is sure to be winner.  This great looking color scheme is already done up and add to that, a quick building ARF means the pilot will have this plane at the field within days. Be sure to check out the complete review in the June issue of Model Airplane News.

About the author

West Coast senior editor About me: I’ve been involved with RC aircraft since high school and have flown just about everything. I started my RC career with scratch-building, but now like many pilots I rely on ARFs to get me in the air. My main focus is on pylon racing, aerobats, combat and scale warbirds.

    Did Mike put it into the gravel on that landing?!? I swore I heard a “crhrhrhsh” sound at 3:25 as he veered to the left! :D

    He did put it into the gravel on that landing, but there was no damage at all. I was trying to save Mike the embarrassment of that landing, but Derek, you are too sharp, and you spotted it. Sorry Mike :-)

    would a comparable gasoline powerplant fit under the cowl or would you even recommend gasoline power?

  8. Randy Davis says:

    Would you recommend using a small gasser? If so, what size.

    Thanks.
