Default RE: All around fun-fly plane

My club favours the ModelTech Magic because It's cheap, reasonably tough and suits the type of tasks that we have on fun fly days. We have a crash/damage rate of about 30% on any given fun fly day so we want something that we can abuse and replace cheaply.

The Magics have been in short supply here so we've been looking for a suitable replacement.

Last weekend i entered the club fun fly with a Hangar-9 Tango and it worked well. The Tango is a very similar design plus it's cheaper and it practically assembles itself when you shake the box. Just about everything is pre-built so it's possible to buy one on Sat and fly it on Sunday.

It actually out performed the Magic on some of our tasks so i think it will become the model of choice as long as local supplies are available.
