HobbyZone airplanes have helped thousands of people get started flying RC models. The new HobbyZone Champ is a great airplane for those people. This airplane is good looking, very durable (due to its very light weight) and easy to fly, This one easily takes the shock out of that “first flight” when you first experience all the things about flying that you didn’t expect! The Aeronca Champ can truly teach you to fly in your own backyard. Eric Johnson, HobbyZone Category Manager has brought an example in so that we can get the low down on all the features of this new Champ. There are some new ideas incorporated in the Champ and I think every kind of RC flyer is going to be interested in taking a look.
In our video Eric outlines the details of this model, so you can see for yourself just how easy it is to get it in the air.
