The Saratoga 40 ARF from Hangar 9 is the perfect .40-size airplane for relaxed sport flying. Characterized by an open cockpit and rounded tail surfaces, this airplane’s looks are timeless from nose to tail. Its classic styling is reminiscent of aviation subjects from the 1930s. The Saratoga is also dressed with UltraCote® in a classic scheme. The black and white checkerboard design on the bottom of the wing contrasts the clean, sharp lines on the top of the wing—making it easy for the pilot to distinguish orientation in the sky. And, the included pilot figure looks natural in the cockpit.
Because of the stability provided by the mid-wing (or shoulder wing) placement, the Saratoga is a great second or third airplane. Despite its casual feel and easy handling, this airplane provides plenty of aerobatic thrills for a pilot of any skill level. The Saratoga is constructed from sturdy, lightweight balsa and plywood, and includes factory-painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants. For sport flying fun off land or water, this 40-size sport plane also comes with float mounts so the 40-size Hangar 9 floats (HAN4015) can bolt right on. Assembly is easy because a lot of the work is already complete. The control surfaces are pre-hinged and the control horns are already installed. For convenient storage and transport to the flying field, the two-piece bolt-on wing removes quickly and easily, and the bolt-on tail ensures proper alignment and means no gluing is necessary.
The Saratoga can be flown either glow or electric. A clear cowl is included to assist in glow engine installation. In addition, all of the hardware is included to fly electric right out of the box—no conversion necessary.
