Product Information

Soar the skies with the Hangar 9 Valaint

Hangar 9 Valiant RC Plane

The high-wing full-scale version of the Valiant is widely regarded as a classic. You’ll be thinking the same of the Hangar 9 Valiant 10cc as well after one flight. The Hangar 9 version is designed to classic scale and engineered to utilise smaller engines for optimal performance. Without making any modifications you’ll be able to install brushless electric power systems if you are looking for a non-fuel option. The Evolution 10GX is a 10cc gas engine that will give you a long flight on the smell of an oily rag. The 7.5-ounce tank costs next to nothing to fill but will get you plenty of time in the air. If you choose the electric option there is easy access for battery changing through the large front hatch.

Incredible scale detail

The scale detail and classic lines of the Hangar 9 Valiant RC plane are further enhanced by the genuine UltraCote covering that allows for easy outer surface maintenance. Assembly of the Valiant is largely based on bolting with the exception of the glue in control surfaces, vertical fin and horizontal stab. Set up at the flying field is made simpler with the two piece cantilever wing design that gives the Valiant a slick look along with removing the need for wing struts. The factory machined hinge slots and holes allow for an easier, more enjoyable setup, and, the hard points that are also factory installed make putting on a pair of separately purchased lightweight floats simply a matter of turning in the screws. As well as looking good the wheel pant accessorised undercarriage is also robust enough to handle the less than average grass runways you may encounter.

Model Airplanes

The Valiant has been designed to be versatile with a semi-symmetrical airfoil providing excellent wind penetration and stability for flying when conditions are not optimal. The Valiant’s operational flaps allow for super short take offs and landings (STOL), and, very enjoyable slow speed flying. With the flaps up the Valiant can shift to an aerobatic sports flyer with this high wing cabin model capable of crisp roll performance, serious loop capability and the rudder surface area to achieve knife edge manoeuvres with precision.

Lightweight, yet durable

For durability and exacting scale standards, the Hangar 9 Valiant is constructed with laser cut, lightweight plywood and balsa enabling cruising or sport flying with confidence. To ensure an easy to maintain, good looking finish the Valiant is covered with genuine Hangar 9 UltraCote.

Power it how you like

Versatility has also been built into the design of the Hangar 9 Valiant 10cc. You have the option of going with the Evolution 10GX 10cc or 11cc four stroke gas engines. If electric is your thing then conversion to a brushless electric power equivalent is simply a matter of utilising the motor mount that comes with the hardware kit which accommodates either fuel or electric installations.

Whether you choose a fuelled or electric power source you will find the Valiant’s semi-symmetrical airfoil and light wing loading is very friendly to the flyer whether you’re cruising or sport flying. The operational flaps give your flight envelope enough versatility to accommodate short take offs and landings.

If you like this plane, you should also take a look at the E-Flite Valiant 1.3m Plane.
