    Hangar 9 ASH 31 ~ 6.4m ARF

    So here it is gentlemen, what you all have been waiting for



    Hangar 9 ASH 31

    Features
    • Pure scale glider or electric powered sailplane option
    • Fully molded to deliver the utmost in precision fit, low weight, and outline accuracy
    • Constructed with layered carbon-fiber and other premium composites
    • High-gloss, painted in the mold for an outstanding appearance
    • Four-piece wing with wing bags for ease of transportation and storage
    • Heavy-duty carbon-fiber main wing joiner block and carbon-fiber wing tip joiners
    • Removable stab allows storage to be as compact as possible
    • Factory installed control horns, completed flight control and gear door hinging, and more
    • Hidden, quick-release clear-canopy hatch mechanism, installed
    • Factory-installed, proportional electric spoilers
    • Factory-installed, carbon-fiber electric retract with aluminum wheel hub
    • Giant-scale, tow-release mechanism included (servo required)

    • Complete hardware to finish the minimal assembly required
    • Decal set included


    Giant-scale soaring is a premier model aviation activity that allows RC pilots to grasp everything sailplanes have to offer in miniature. Nothing compares to the thrill. Even standing on the ground, the seemingly simple experience of your model finding lift is nothing short of breathtaking. The Hangar 9® Elite Series ASH 31 6.4m ARF is a giant-scale marvel that combines premium fully-molded composite construction with a high-level of completion to deliver a scale sailplane experience that’s simple with unexpected versatility.

    The Hangar 9® Elite Series ASH 31 6.4m ARF sailplane delivers a premium giant-scale soaring experience with elegance and innovative convenience that makes flying a huge 252-inch wingspan glider simple. Like its full-size counterpart, premium composites meticulously combine with fully-molded construction to deliver a state-of-the-art design. As a result, unmatched airfoil accuracy is maintained while painstaking-engineering produces a strong, lightweight wing load for impressive performance capabilities. Fly it as an authentic scale replica or just for sport. Beyond the stunning appearance of its accurate outline, the fit and finish of every part creates a model that’s elegant in every respect.

    Better than many all-composite aircraft in its class, a Hangar 9 Elite Series model offers a higher level of completion—all of the “hard” parts are done for you—so that your time at the workbench is minimal. Appointments like the special retract and electric spoilers come factory installed; all of the hinging is done including doors for the retract wheel. Even going further into detail, like on the cockpit, is made easier because we’ve already sourced outstanding partners in the industry to have quality options ready for you. Despite its dramatic 20-foot span, convenience features make the model easy to enjoy. The wings attach as four convenient panels with plug-in wing tips, and the stabilizer mounts with just a few screws. It’s a giant-scale thrill that packs up easily.

    Haven’t got a tow plane available? No problem! Have a blast at the slope. Better still; the ASH 31 can be enjoyed as a self-launch motor glider. Just add the versatile E-flite® Power 60 brushless power system for launch performance that’s practically vertical. Combine use of the flaps and spoilers together and explore its STOL capabilities. Aerobatics wise, this ASH-31 will perform beyond the scale aerobatic book of sequences, especially when motor equipped. All combined, the Hangar 9 Elite ASH 31 6.4m glider is in a class by itself that sets a new standard in giant-scale soaring fun.


    Hangar 9® Elite Series
    Hangar 9 Elite Series, like this ASH 31, is part of a bold new venture that offers only premium composite aircraft. All-molded full-composite construction ensures strength, lightweight, precision, efficiency and a premium finish unachievable by any other means. The result is an attention to detail that extends Hangar 9® manufacturing expertise while increasing your ability to enjoy a premium giant-scale replica at the highest level of finish and completion. However, these hand-made results take time and are naturally only available in small quantities. We highly recommend placing your order as soon as possible—it’s an easy, no-charge guarantee you can cancel at any time.

    Motor-Glider Conversion
    To make the ASH 31 extremely versatile, an electric power system featuring an E-flite® Power 60, 470Kv motor and 90-amp ESC that uses either a single 4, 5 or 6S Li-Po battery can be easily installed. It allows the ASH 31 to launch without assistance and deliver powerful short-field takeoff performance. The recommended spinner is contoured to match the scale outline and, along with the propeller, can be painted so that it’s nearly invisible in flight.

    All-Composite Airframe
    No painting or finishing is required. The outstanding fit and finish of an all-molded airframe is well known. Not only is it a tribute to the construction of the full-scale, it delivers accuracy that translates to high-strength, lift efficiency, and precision flight. Better than many all-molded composite aircraft in its class, the ASH 31 doesn’t include a hefty hardware bag weighted down with mystery components. Instead, the complete hardware kit included is minuscule because tedious parts of final assembly are done. Everything that needs hinging and precise fitting is complete, even on the landing gear doors.

    Premium Accessories Included
    Hangar 9 Elite Series models are developed so that you can enjoy a premium experience as quickly as possible. On the ASH 31, this means that accessories such as retracts, spoilers and wing bags, for example, are factory installed, tested and packed in the box.

    Hey Chaps. A quick heads up. The ASH 31's are finally starting to ship. Sorry for the delay. Its been a real fight getting these into the USA and out to customers.
    Craig G, A member of our quality team and myself pulled multiple kits from stock and spot inspected them last week. I was super impressed with what I saw. I would honestly say, they are a better level of finish than the three pre production samples we have been flying!
    One slight issue. Our vendor let us down with the manuals. We had a choice.It was either print new manuals and put them in here in the USA. But that would have meant waiting till well after Christmas to ship them to our customers?? Or.......... Send them out without the manuals in the boxes, and ask our wonderful, delightful and super considerate customers to go to the ASH web page and download a copy of the manual. They can either print a copy, or just view it on their computer?

    Thanks for your understanding. rest assured. We will have this taken care of for the next shipments. Please let me know if I can be of any help?

    Regards Ali

    Can someone that has a 31 post the dimensions of the lettering on the fuse and tail? And possibly the dimensions of the wing panels? Want to get some vinyl ordered from Callie.

    Ali asked me to post this from RC Groups!

    What do you chaps think about this??

    I have been working with the factory to try and offer a pre painted spinner and prop? Its been tough because the factory who supplies the props and spinners could not paint and get a close match. Anyway... I finally managed to work it out where I am happy.

    So. The question is... Will there be enough of a demand to warrant us going to production? As well as what would people be willing to pay to have matched spinner and prop?
    Right now. The Spinner sells for $21 and the Carbon props are $43 a pair.

    Let me know your thoughts please...

    Regards Ali

    P.S. I know I am going to be asked. First shipment of ASH 31's was scheduled to leave the factory on the 24th of this month, but that's been delayed a week due to an issue with freight. The booking is now the 2nd of November. Sorry. I have no way of knowing who will get their kit on the first batch? But rest assured. The second and third order is already in production as we speak.
