Hanger 9 Saratoga

Any one seen one of these or know anything about it? I just found it as I was looking through Horizon Hobby UKs site I think it looks pretty good, and being Horizon it should work well also.

Shows on the web site late May release. Appears to have a design similar to the Pulse with different shaped wing tips and an open cockpit and different color scheme.
I like the look of it alot- If it is anything like the Pulse series it will be a winner
I am going to Seff in a couple of Weeks - hopefullt Horizon will be flying it in the noon demos- I will try and check it out.

It looks like the shoulder wing version of the Toledo...

Both look great!

You're thinking along the same lines as me, this seems to have the classic sportster lines that I like with the mid to shoulder wing design that doesn't ape the now ubiquitus Extra, Edge, or Funtana style. Which I find IMHO all a little samey.
I've no idea when we will see one this side of the pond, but if you say it should be available State side around May-June, we may get them a couple or three months later. I certainly hope so, and if she's as good as Horizon products usualy are she'll be a cracker.

Visited the local HS today and had the opportunity to see the Saratoga first hand. As the sales person was handing me the box he said he recieved two of them Friday and sold one of them about an hour before I walked in.

I opened the box and the covering sceme was great. The finish looked very good as well. The plane has sexy lines and would be a great candidate for a 4 stroke engine.

I don't have experience with Hanger 9 planes. It seemed pricey for an ARF ($249) when compared to a Four Star at $149. It's on my list as far as cadidates go for my next plane.

I spoke to the Horizon UK guys at Wings and Wheels this weekend and they told me they'd be with us next month. Yes the price is high, but then so is the quality, and with horizon I know it's going to work
