Hobbyking Katana .46 EP 1400mm (ARF) (AU Warehouse)

Hobbyking Katana .46 EP 1400mm (ARF) (AU Warehouse)
Hobbyking Katana .46 EP 1400mm (ARF) (AU Warehouse)

This high quality Katana has been built to satisfy both 3D pilots and precision aerobatic flyers. It features huge control surfaces and a light wing loading, the perfect recipe for some extreme aerobatics!

The build quality is quite superb and is both strong and light, the covering is expertly applied and the attractive colour scheme is ideal for orientation. The glass fiber cowl is nicely painted and lightweight to keep the flying weight down. The supplied hardware is excellent and this model offers an easy and quick build due to large amount of pre-fabrication. This kit includes the hardware to go with either a glow or electric build, making it very versatile. Wings are plug in as you would expect to make transportation easy and the large canopy is of course removable for easy Lipoly changing.

This very attractive Katana offers superb performance on the reccomended set up for both the 3D pilot and the sport flyer, the .46 class models are popular as they fly like a large scale plane but are relatively inexpensive to build and are very practical. This Katana is the perfect all round model for the intermediate to experienced pilot. It looks good, flys great, is practical and doesnt break the bank!

Can I use a G60 in this Plane

Where did you install the throttle servo on this plane ? There´*s a throttle servo board in the manual, but there´*s none included with the plane. What about the hinges, would you recommend any better ones ore are they ok?

1 thumbs up!
I have had three flights with my Katana, on the first flight on the second turn.
Half the tailplane & elevator broke off. I managed to land it ok.
On the second flight same thing repaired it again.
This time with epoxy and extra gussets.
Third flight boke in flight again not happy.
I have it ready for the fourth flight I rebuilt the tailplane and strengthened the elevator. Hope it holds together this time.

Hi, I love this little plane. My setup is using an OS 55 nitro with a 13x4.5 Turnigy wooden slow fly prop. COG is as per manual. Has heaps of pull and flies nice and straight without any bad tendencies. I fly IMAC and came 3rd in my class with this plane! There are a few things to fix, first I swapped all the plastic clevises, I broke a few just looking at them. Next the tank is too small for a nitro engine and needed to be replaced with a larger tank (no issue for electric setup) The elevator joining section is too weak and needs to be reinforced. The landing gear mounting is a bit weak too (pulled that out on a bad landing because of the small tank) Overall a nice looking little plane, a few things to fix but at this price you won't find any better. Good job HobbyKing!
