Saratoga 40 - The Saratoga 40 ARF from Hangar 9 is an easy flying shoulder wing .40 size sport airplane designed for relaxed flying. With its open cockpit, rounded tail surfaces and classic looks the model is reminiscent of aircraft from the 1930ís, however despite its classic looks the Saratoga is capable of a wide range of aerobatics.
The Saratoga is constructed from sturdy lightweight balsa and plywood covered in UltraCote with a black and white checkerboard design on the bottom of the wing contrasting nicely with the clean sharp lines on the top of the wing, this not only adds to the classic looks it also makes the model easy to see and helps the pilot with orientation in the sky.
Assembling the model could not be easier as most of the work is already completed for you. The control surfaces come pre-hinged with pre-installed control horns, pre-painted fiberglass cowl and wheel pants and a two-piece bolt-on wing that removes quickly and easily for easy transport whilst the bolt-on tail plane ensures proper alignment without the need for gluing.
The Saratoga can be powered with either a glow engine or an electric motor, a clear (dummy) see through cowl is included to assist in engine installation and should you wish to fly electric power, all of the neccessary conversion hardware is included and thanks to the top mounted battery hatch, access to the flight battery is quick and easy without the need to remove the wing to change the battery.
For even more fun this versatile sport model also comes with float mounts allowing the Hangar9 40-size floats (HAN4015) to bolt fitted easily so you can take off and land on water!
