I have the old 84" version with a G26EI up front and it is a joy to fly. Very easy handling and gorgeous in the air.

This one looks even better with the updated lines and features

Have the 85" version also--elec powered. Yes, there are some nice detail features on this new version --I especially like the gear fairings.
It's tough to beat the lasting nostalgia of a Cub but for me the H9 T Craft is a close 2nd & flying offers much better aerobatics.
I can guess this will be near the $500 range.

Funny thing.. ..I emailed Horizon just 2 weeks ago about bringing this plane back. I was told they had "no information on any new products coming out anytime soon". I have the first version using a converted Homelite 30cc on C-H Ignition. GREAT flyer. I think I remember paying $349.99 for mine, dealer prices were around $399.99 best I recall. I bet mine has less than 20 flights on it and still looks like new. I would buy this one just beacause it looks so good....BUT FOR $549.95......yep....file this one away with the overpriced Horizon ARF's My Horizon ban is still in effect.

Wow, that's a good lookin' plane! Wow, that's really expensive! I think the RC Guys 98" Decathlon for $399 sounds like a pretty good deal in comparison...

DiabloKid, does your G26 stick out of the cowl?
If i got this new Taylorcraft i want a gas engine in it
that will not stick out to preserve the scale look.
Thanks!

Nice looking T-Craft !
I still have the older 84 inch version still NIB and came across a Lanier T-Craft kit still NIB at an LHS that was a swap for another airplane.
Anyone have any information on what a Lanier T-Craft kit is quality wise?
Also have a scratch built 80 inch T-Craft from RC plans that is bout 50% complete.

I don't like to throw cold water on all of the enthusiasm about this beautiful airplane, but I do wish that they could learn to build them a bit lighter. The wing loading of around 30 ounces per square foot is just too much to expect very scale-like flight from this bird. I have a Super Cub of a similar size, and it weighs about half what this T'Craft does, and it is still almost too fast to appear very scale in flight.

If a person wants a plane that flies like a fighter, then they should buy P-51 or Sabre Jet.
