For the balsa enthusiast, the new Hangar 9 Tiger 30cc delivers the classic looks and performance of the popular Tiger series in a larger 30cc platform for common gas engines and electric power systems. Taking its cues from the Tigers of old, this sport plane is streamlined with a complete fiberglass cowl requiring no additional work to get ready for the runway. A smart red, white, and blue color scheme highlights the modern sport plane's looks with nods to its rich past.

Why do a lot of these planes stipulate a gasoline engine or electric, but they don't mention glow engines? What's with that? I have several glow four strokers that will perform as well as a 30cc gasser. I'm not interested in moving into gas engines and as long as I can afford glow fuel, I won't be. I like that big Tiger but until I understand why they say "Gas" and not glow, I'll hold off ordering.

Glow isnít as popular. But you can probably slap on any 1.50+ sized 2-stroke or 4 stroke glow engine.

I still donít understand why Horizon had to change this of all their options and make it their own. This is kind of a slap in the face to the late great Carl Goldberg... this is one of his original designs; they should have left it alone and released in the original color scheme... a proper tribute to the father of model aviation.

Personally I like it. If I happen to write off my GP Escapade 61, this would be an excellent replacement/upgrade!

Horizon has one interest, dominate the supply side of our hobby by eliminating any reference to the creator. Horizon is a corporation with a ravenous appetite for our hobby dollars and they donít seem to care how they feed that hunger. Iíll just buy from places like SIG who refused to cave to the demands of Horrorison

Well no one makes a large glow engine anymore. Glow engines have become less popular over time while gasoline engines and electric motors have become more popular. They can't suggest a glow engine for planes like this anymore if no one makes them now.

That's a good point... however both of these would haul it around with no difficulty:

This is the kind of airplane that will last many, many, years if set up properly and taken care of. Why not consider a partial or even complete recover if the only thing you donít like is the color scheme? I would strip the fuse and vertical stab and then recover in red to match the cowl.

One could do that, if wanting to throw another 100 bucks on top of a new ARF. This one is the worst scheme that Horizion has put out to date, just reinforces the fact that they have very little control over there product.

I wish there was a measurement of the width in the fuselage for batteries?

approximately 10.75" X4.5" . I know it looks like 5" width but there's a former/bulkhead there that takes a bit of that away. Yes, you'll notice a magnet on one shot but the hatch actually secures with two dowels that have springs on them up front so you shove it forward to compress the springs, drop the rear and it slides back with a catch on the rear. Spring pressure keeps it in place. If you're so inclined, or run gas on it (thinking of vibrations), there are two blind nuts built in at the rear and you just need to put holes in the covering on either side of the fuse to use an M3 bolt and/or thumbscrew on either side. Pictures below are of an electric one but we even fly one with a DLE35 and no bolts, just the springs and rear catch. In any case, all options are available out of the box.

there is no problem using two 6s/7000 packs (12s/7000). plenty of room. however, that's a bit overkill if using the rimfire 170. That setup with an 18X10 and 12s/5000 has unlimited vertical, is in the 50's in current on the ground, 27 at full throttle level in the air, and 40's in climb. Depending on how aggressive you fly it, from a low of 5~6 minutes to a high of 10 really isn't a problem. i set a timer at 8 and use throttle appropriately, landing with enough reserve left in 12s/5000's.
