Has anyone had any experience with the Hangar 9 Cherokee. A friend of mine is interested in it as a second plane. Thanks for any feed back.

H9 Cherokee

I've never flown one, but I work at our LHS and have seen the ARF up close; from what I saw it was a well built kit.

I also have no doubts that it would be a great 2nd plane !

H9 Cherokee..

Good points: It looks great, its a great flying plane and decent size. Bad points: The fusleage is made of thin foam which is pretty much impossible to repair if it hits anything. The covering tends to sag bad if you live in hotter states such as Texas. The stopper has to be replaced for the fuel tank. The end is made of soft rubber which can't be tightened down enough to seal off the tank. The cowl is made of paper thin plastic. You will need to reinforce the inside with fiberglass. Other than that the plane flys well and is pretty fast at throttle. Lands slow at idle.

Wow! I was just going to say that I have the H9 T-34 Mentor. Great plane, flies nice, with do most aerobatic manuvers, well built, fibreglass cowl and stinger fairing. Flies well with my SAito 56. I figured the Cherokee must be the same, since its from H9!! I guess FAstsky proves my thinking wrong. Musta been made at a different Chinese factory!! Maybe you should tell your friend about the T-34!

H9 Cherokee, part of the "Value Series" line ...

The words to watch for on the H9 kits is "Value Series". If it says that for the disrecption or on the box then that means it has the foam sided fuselage instead of balsa.

Hanger 9 Cherokee

Hanger 9 Cherokee value series has a lot of undesirable items that I did not like about it like the small wheels and wheel pants that will not work on a grass runway. The covering is a mack tac material which sags in the sun it is panted and hard to replace in a repair. The top of the fuselage is made of formed plastic and after twenty flights has stress cracks around the canopy. The wing did not fit to the body wit 1/4 gap so I had to redrill the dowel holes to make it fit right. The plane flies like a trainer and looks great in the air. Hanger 9 always made good arf but they slipped on their value series

I had one too. The cowl was the poorest part to me. The one I had flew really well and looked great. I saw them in the Tower Hobbies magazine at $99.00 U.S. Funds. I think that's hard to beat for a nice looking good flying airplane. I gave mine away to another hobbyist and he flew it for a season. My attitude has always been that we don't want these things to last forever so...........for the low price I say reasonable value. Mine flew great on a Thunder Tiger .46. Just my .02 cents worth.
