Hangar 9 Meridian Sport ARF and Evolution 10cc Gas Engine

A sweet looking new combo!

Overview

The Hangar 9® Meridian 10cc ARF aircraft embodies the pure joy of what RC sport flying is about. From its long fuselage and stylishly shaped tail surfaces to the super stability of its generously proportioned constant-chord wing, every feature ties together. A perfect next-level sport airplane designed to have familiar forgiving manners, it appeals to the veteran and novice RC pilot. Its exceptional construction is lightweight without sacrificing strength or rigidity and is oversized just enough to deliver better visibility and great handling. In addition, its functional flaps add a level of capability that complements the ease and grace in which this low-wing model performs sport aerobatics and smooth landings.


The Meridian model shines when powered with the Evolution® 10cc gas engine. Besides the thrilling experience this engine offers, you’ll enjoy the ease of use and reliability that outclasses the hassles and expense of using glow fuel. Because the Evolution 10cc gas engine is so economical, you’ll carry less fuel in the airplane, which means less weight for the same amount of flight time.

looks good, but no way with that weight I would go with power 46. Power 60 1200 watts target.

By design, this model flies on the wing, and a Power 46 is plenty. A Power 60 will naturally offer higher performance if that is your taste. You'll have to determine your own mounting.

I love it. Looks great, nice colors. Should be a fun sport flyer. I plan on buying one and putting in a 4 stroke 91 that I have sitting on the shelf waiting for a plane. I know its more than what the specs call for, but it should be ok.
Craig, Are there any pictures of the bottom of the plane available?
Thanks...

Craig, I like my sport and warbird planes to fly with authority. I do not make them rockets, but I like at least 150 watts per pound. That's what I fly my P-47 60 and Toledo special at.

Similar planes from Hangar 9 used Power 60 and 6S, like Pulse XT 60. I´m curious to see that plane with Power 46 and 4S.

This one looks alot like a Bingo! from the back. Should be really nice.

Any word on when to expect the nice little gas engine that would go in it?
