Don Lowe’s Phoenix-series of airplane designs dominated pattern aerobatics during the 70’s and 80's. Their point-and-shoot precision and slippery, swept-wing aerodynamics completely revolutionized the precision aerobatic scene. And while all of them still enjoy a sizable fan base today, the Phoenix 7 is considered by many aficionados to be the best of the bunch. Now you too can experience the ballistic aerobatic performance of the Phoenix 7 in a fraction of the time it would take to build a kit with this exceptional ARF from Hangar 9. Built using original Don Lowe plans and molds, it shares the exact same dimensions and construction as a scratch-built Phoenix 7 kit right down to the fiberglass fuselage and fully sheeted wing and horizontal stab.
Hangar 9 has even gone so far as to deck it out with the same trim scheme the Phoenix 7 champion pilot Mark Radcliff flew in F3A World Championship competitions from 1975 to 1981. Add to all this the fact that it comes out of the box ready to accept retracts and any lightweight .60-size 2-stroke engine with a tuned pipe and you’ve got a blast from the past that’s truly a blast to fly.
