Overview

Hangar 9’s Taylorcraft 20cc ARF is a gorgeous re-creation of a one-of-a-kind full-scale, clipped-wing T-Craft built by renowned aircraft restoration expert, Jim Moss. Ever the innovator, Mr. Moss took a run-of-the-mill Taylorcraft and turned it into a single-seat hot rod that looks every bit as spectacular as it flies. Hangar 9 has reproduced this Moss masterpiece in stunning detail with scale touches that include a prepainted cowl with intakes, an air scoop and louvers, a detailed cockpit, Pitts-style wheel pants and landing gear. This 80-inch giant-scale Taylorcraft combines stunning aerobatic capabilities with the stability of a high-wing aircraft. As with every other Hangar 9 scale ARF, the model is expertly covered in genuine UltraCote® from wing tip to tail. All necessary hardware is included and the model comes with everything you need to equip it with gas or glow power.
