Hangar 9 Valiant 30cc ARF

Built light for great performance from a 30cc.

Splash

Classic high-wing looks with aerobatic performance

The all-balsa and plywood Valiant is a 30cc giant scale high-wing aircraft with some classic lines; in our opinion it falls somewhere between the styling of a Stinson and a Cessna 180, with a cowl resembling a Super Cub. The Valiant features a 108" wingspan and is ready for the Evolution 33GX gas engine or a similarly sized electric configuration such as the Eflite Power 160. The Valiant was designed to be light enough to perform all the standard aerobatic maneuvers without needing the power and subsequent weight of a 50cc engine.

Standard on the Valiant are flaps, fiberglass cowl, tinted lexan cockpit windows, and removable tail surfaces. Optional floats and tundra tires are also available.

Specifications:

  • Wingspan: 108.3 in (275 cm)
  • Overall Length: 78.2 in (199 cm)
  • Wing Area: 1663.0 sq. in. (107.3 sq. dm.)
  • Flying Weight: 16.5 - 17.5 lb ( 7.48 - 7.94 kg)
  • Engine: 33cc
  • Motor: Power 160
  • Radio: 6+ channel
  • Servos: Gas: 8 servos EP: 7 servos
  • Wing Loading: 23-24 oz/sq ft.
  • Prop Size: Gas: 17-18x8, EP: 18x10
  • Speed Control : 80A
  • Battery: EP: 37.0V 10S (5S x2) 5000mAh LiPo RX: 6.6V 2S 2200 - 3000mAh Li-Fe

I like the idea behind this plane. Fresh airframe that seems to be a good for multitasking. I would like to know if the cowl can accommodate a 50cc engine.

It really like this plane too. A 50cc should fit maybe stick out the bottom a bit.

Seriously looking at this one as my new tow plane!
Should work great with a Rimfire 50 or 65

Just my opinion but would prefer it was a scale-like C-170 or 180.

Will the DLE 33 or the OS GT33 work in this plane? All of the ads mention the Evolution 33 only.

Yes, any 30/33 will fit, but since no one has one yet, it remains to be seen if any cowl trimming will be needed for various engines.
