Hangar Rat. Classic simple indoor rubber sport model. Design by Harry Barr, with mdifictaions by M Starick.

The original 1979 Hanger Rat article in MB had the following qoute from the designer:

"Hangar Rat owes its existence to the 'Sig Parasol,' a simple, easy-to-fly, tissue-covered profile model. Having built one of these with a cambered wing, I proceeded to fly it every lunch hour in the hangar, where I worked, until it was so tattered it was retired to a place of honor above my bench. Needing another fun machine that could be built in a hurry, Hangar Rat evolved, using the same airfoil I had used on the Parasol".

"It has been a success right from the first flight, with average flight times under a 20 foot ceiling of 50 sec, with a best flight to date of 1:08 and many flights over a minute. It is easy to adjust and build and will bring pleasure to both the beginner and the jaded R/C nut (like me). It brings back memories of simpler times when modeling was less complex and expensive."

Avetek have taken this design and laser cut it to make building it even easier than ever!.

Kit incudes precison laser cut parts, wire, motor bearing, built up prop, rubber and tissue.
