Wonder Why

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
RC Guys though not an advertiser on here get a lot of mention,from us the hobbyist. Whether it be for an airplane for sale or someone building one. I have oftem wonder the wisdom of RC Guys discontinueing the Treehopper Kit(designed by our own Gary Maker). It is a n easy plane to build definately a trainer type but versatile in its design that it can carry a large payload, great as a float plane good in rough weather when you have just got to fly.The motor that is needed to power it can be a 25cc gas to about a 65 glow or even an electric. The price wasn't to shabby either at about $120. plus taxes. Oh well maybe the company AMR that does advertise on here will pick up the slack in this department as the two planes look very similar. H... all box type trainer planes look similar
To a tree, balsa wood and MonoKote taste just like chicken!

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.

Pee on it and walk away.

Re: Wonder Why

Discontinued generally means lack of sales, not sure if this is the case here or not.

Re: Wonder Why

As all other 'manufacturers' they are now only selling ARFs.
Where are they built?

Re: Wonder Why

Had I seen this plane a couple years ago, I would have bought the kit and built it as my first plane.

A gas powered trainer is a great alternative to .40 size trainer.
