Van s RV-4 30cc from hangar 9


Among the hundreds of homebuilt aircraft designs that have taken flight over the years, few inspire pilot devotion like the Van's RV line of airplanes. Just ask any of the faithful. It doesn't matter which RV they fly. They will all testify to a balance of stability and nimble response that just makes you want to smile whenever you're at the controls. Master model designer, Ali Machinchy, has perfectly captured that Van's experience with this 30cc reproduction of the RV-4. It combines superb detail and thrilling flight performance to give pilots of almost any skill level a giant-scale experience unlike any other.

The Hangar 9® Van's RV-4 30cc ARF has been designed to make every step of your giant-scale experience as hassle-free as possible. It all starts with the assembly. The two-piece plug-in wing and horizontal stabilizer slide together on aluminum tubes and bolt into place. The large fuselage access hatch makes electronics installation easy, too. There's even a pre-assembled, self-aligning drill guide to speed the installation of whatever powerplant you decide to use, gas or electric. Once in the air, you'll find the model's wide flight envelope and forgiving flight characteristics just as easy to enjoy. It will do it all, from touch and gos to advanced aerobatics, with the same smooth, predictable response the full-scale version is famous for.
