We recently received a shipment from Hangar 9 and Seagull Models and in this blog post, we’ll take you through our favourite aircraft. Let’s get into it!

Ultra-versatile Ultra Stick RC plane from Hangar 9

The Ultra Stick RC plane has a tried and true design that is extremely popular. If you go to any flying field in the country, you’re likely to see this model plane and for good reason. The Ultra Stick is an easy to fly model, which has such a wide flight envelope that it suits a range of pilots. It’s capable of sport, high-speed, aerobatic precision and 3D all in the same flight. Plus, included in the box is an electric motor mount, so you can choose whether you power your RC plane with a gasoline engine or electric motor. Talk about versatility!

Hangar 9 have two sizes of this model plane available, the 10cc and 30cc. The 30cc is obviously a larger plane, but both models are quite simplistic in their design. Both the 10cc and 30cc planes come as ‘Almost-Ready-to-Fly' (ARF) meaning you’ll need to add your own electronics, servos and power plant of choice. If you’re looking for an aircraft that does it all, the Ultra Stick may be the choice for you.

Van's RV-4 replica

Van's RV-4 model plane

Hangar 9 have produced a scale model of the popular Van’s RV-4 Plane. Van’s do a range of popular full-size kit build aircraft that a lot of people build themselves from the ground up and now you can have your own Van’s RV-4 in an RC version. This is an ARF model that is pre-covered with superb scale detail, and you will need to add your transmitter, electronics, servos and choice of power plant - you can use a 30cc engine or the equivalent in electric power.

The full-size aircraft has a lot of great features, it’s sporty, does a lot of aerobatics and has some nice tendencies as well. The RC model is no different – you'll be truly satisfied by its wide flight envelope and forgiving flight characteristics.
