After mastering a 4-channel trainer, a modeler is ready to move up to the next level, and this Cherokee ARF is the ideal offering. Pilots will find that not only is it sized for transportation ease, it also flies well with popular .46-sized engines – which makes it easier for you to support. Great Planes' Cherokee ARF also serves as a great transition into brushless electric power, along with the thrill of low-wing flight. And the sport-scale Cherokee profile is a great change-of-pace from Stiks and Cubs!
