Hangar 9 Tiger 30cc

For the balsa enthusiast, the new Hangar 9 Tiger 30cc delivers the classic looks and performance of the popular Tiger series in a larger 30cc platform for common gas engines and electric power systems. Taking its cues from the Tigers of old, this sport plane is streamlined with a complete fiberglass cowl requiring no additional work to get ready for the runway. A smart red, white, and blue color scheme highlights the modern sport plane's looks with nods to its rich past.

Hangar 9 Tiger 30cc ARF Airplane (3 min 41 sec)

Bigger than the Tigers of yesterday, it only needs a 30cc-class gas/petrol engine to deliver outstanding performance.

Is that a "Flap" on the inside of the aileron?

Flaps are built in as an option.
Out of the box they come joined to the Aileron. The builder decides if they want to leave them as they are and run full span aileron. Or cut them free and install two more servos and have flaps?

That looks like a semi-symmetrical airfoil...???
It seems some of the "roar" could be missing... ...the old, small one was fully symmetrical.

Very Nice Ali. Can't believe that hasn't been done on a lot of other models. Flaps can be a lot of fun and in some cases very helpful on short runways. Kudos to you Ali

It looks like this plane is built by the same builder that made many of the Great Planes ARFs. I noted the Monokote covering, hardware and general construction methods. Apparently Horizon has maintained a relation with this builder after the Great Planes / Hobbico takeover. Any chance we will see some of the other popular Great Planes ARFs reappear?

I mentioned the same thing in the thread on RC Groups. Clearly has the GP lineage. Probably was something that was already in development? Not sure what factory they have building it. I thought I heard that they lost the one that was doing a large portion of the bigger GP models.

Thanks guys, but I cant take much credit for this one. It is a project that has been in development for a long time. Long before we ( Horizon Hobby ) bought what was left of Hobbico. I just made a few changes and finished the project off.
I would be proud of it if I were the lead developer. It is a really good flying and honest plane. A lot more fun than I expected it to be.!
This is an existing vendor that carried over from the Hobbico days. In fact. It is the last vendor who produced wood arf's for them that is still in business.
We are working hard to keep this wood arf business alive. But trust me. I see the real life sales numbers and costs and complications in making wood ARF's. Dating back to "the good ol Hobbico days" No one wants to keep wood ARF's alive more than me. Not only am I a life long RC flyer ( Like many of you reading this ) I am also a fan of many an old ARF classic design. Oh. I almost forgot to mention that my livelihood depends on it!
However. Working on the inside has opened my eyes to many fundamental truths about what has to happen for a business to stay afloat and profitable when producing wood ARF's
Simple fact is. Even if we had the vendors available. Which there simply isn't!!! Just in the past 4 years that I have been a PD I can think of 5 very big players in the wood ARF producing business that have closed their doors and stopped producing.
Even if there were the vendors. The fact is.... keeping older and less popular ARF's in production actually ends up costing the parent company money. It's a sad fact and I know one that gets some people quite riled up, but it's just not possible to keep every ARF going or bring every ARF back. It will be interesting to watch the Tiger 30cc and see how well it does in today's market place??

Perhaps focusing more on marketing these and similar and less on foam throw-away planes for newbies? I'm well aware you fish where the money is, but to shift more focus on these just might make the foam fliers aware of something to look forward to.
