Horizon Hobby Electric Civilian Planes for 2022


Figured that since activity has been light lately in the 2021 thread, and given that new plane releases have been slow due to various effects of COVID, I'd kick off the 2022 thread a week early.

Post away!

LOL! Along with a Twin Beech (of course), I'd also go for Gene Soucy's Showcat! Remember that plane - a crop-duster that can do nearly unlimited aerobatics?

Gene Soucy "Showcat" Aerobatics - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 (8 min 24 sec)


Or, along with Kyle Franklin's Twin Beech - how about his Dracula bipe?

Kyle Franklin "Dracula" Biplane - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2018 (11 min 24 sec)


Kyle is a fellow RCer & uses his RC planes to teach himself new full-scale aerobatic maneuvers - so I'd think that licensing would be fairly easy!

Still hoping for a Cessna 336/337/O-2.

I would buy one, but there would only be a couple of us that would.
The plane is soooo ugly, that it takes a twisted mind to truly appreciate its beauty.

I'd actually prefer the plane it was developed from, the Bennett Airtruck!

Nice round engine...

That would work too. An Airtruk would sure be different from a Cub/Cessna/Timber/Tundra high wing STOL.

Omg - that’s even uglier than the Avia!

First time I ever “encountered” the Avia Airtruck was when it appeared in one of the Mad Max movies (Thunderdrome?). At the time I thought it was the product of some Hollywood model builder’s demented mind. It fit in so well with the post-apocalyptic setting that it couldn’t possibly be a real plane…

Boy was I surprised!

Looking at the Airtruk (or Airtruck for that matter) I always imagine the designer walking into a hangar full of disparate airplane parts and thinking "Wonder what I'd get if I put them all together?"
