The PC-9 is a Turboprop military training aircraft that is used by several counties around the world, including Australia. Although built by Pilatus in Switzerland, the PC-9 is actually marketed by BAE Systems, armed versions are also in service with several countries, to date, over 250 have been built.
The H-King PC-9 is a great looking and flying easy build plug and fly model with great performance. The one piece wing is removable for easy transport and the fixed undercarriage can be removed for those wanting to bellyland, for those using the supplied under-carriage, the nosewheel is steerable to keep your PC-9 tracking true. All servos, the motor and ESC are pre-installed and the model features a novel swing up canopy for easy battery access. The model comes with a spare prop & spinner as well as the tools needed to complete the build.
The PC-9 is a great sport fly scale model that is capable of all the basic aerobatic maneuvers, it is made from super tough EPO foam so it can stands some knocks, it is nicely priced and cheap to get into the air, practical and good looking, this is a great scale parkflyer!
Pilatus PC-9 (PRODUCT ID: PC-9-PNP) is my third model from Hobbyking, and for the first time, I am not very pleased. Is there anyone who can tell me how I mount the elevator. Do I have to cut some of the fuselage (tail) or have I been supplied with the wrong elevator? (see picture).
On the real aircraft they are stencils that show where the lifting points are in case you need to lift it with a crane after a wheels up landing for instance - it is supposed to represent a hook rather than an upside down 2
really? Looks like that is what it means here doesn't it? although it should strictly be yellow *******aviationancestry****/articles/markings.html you can also here it here with the words 'aircraft lift' over the hook www.link -but what do I know
Hey, I bought one of these, and firstly, it came in a bad bo- well it wasnt a box. just some carboard with parts strapped to it. And it didnt come witha manual, so can I be told where the CG is? Thanks!
ok, so that didn't work :o/ but they're art tech planes, that link will get you there then look for the PC9 it the roulette colours :) and watching the vid on there makes me wana get one :) but I've already got the seagull 1300mm wing span and 1500mm wing span :oD
It's caused by the turboprop-system the original plane has. It need to look like that. www.link
Hi to all readers - I bought this PC-9 on a wim as it is an aircraft type that I did not have in my airforce. The attraction of this model was the size and the attractive RAF colour scheme. This took a little while to arrive, however when I opened the box I was very happy to see the model was very well protected and was damage free. On closer examination there were no instructions which is important for the assembly of the tail and the C of G. I assembled my model in just over an hour. There is a little issue with the assembly of the vertical stabiliser as this has an interferance fit with the fuselage - easily overcome with a fine nail file. To assemble the tails horizontal stabaliser you will need to remove the moulded stern post on the fuselage. I cannot wait for some good weather to get it airborn. The detail of the model in the cockpit is superb and overall well worth the $89. So what are you waiting for guys get buying :-)

I've always liked the look of this one so I bought one as my first plane. Great plane out of the box, little assembly required and looked smick! My instructor handlaunched it and found it didn't have enough power. I finally got a replacement prop and off I went. It's super maneurverable and I maneuvered it into the ground on it's maiden flight. Some epoxy and off we went with a bent nose. I also dented the motor shaft so that was that.
I added a Turnigy DST-1200 Bell Motor and it hooked along! The bad news is a flew it on an overcast day and as someone else mentioned the colour scheme is not the most visible - so I destroyed it in a crash. It's a great plane and I'll get a another one soon.
