Hangar 9 Katana 50 ARF


This is the Hangar 9 Katana 50. Like the sword for which it's named, the Hangar 9 Katana 50 was designed by champion aerobatic pilot, Mike McConville, to be exceptionally lightweight without sacrificing strength or rigidity. The amazing power-to-weight ratio this construction makes possible is complemented by an airfoil that has been specially designed for aggressive 3D flight. The result is explosive aerobatic performance that will let you boldly explore the limits of your abilities while enjoying absolute precision and control at every corner of the envelope.
