Operate the included flaps with a 5-channel radio for even greater realism and flight control.
Tricycle landing gear provides positive handling on grass or pavement.

The Cherokee ARF goes together in just a few hours. Its factory-built main structures are covered in MonoKote film, and the fiberglass cowl and wheel pants are painted to match. Pre-hinged control surfaces save you even more time!
The cockpit area – with installed pilot figure – doubles as a hatch that removes for easy access to batteries for an out-runner brushless motor system. The fuselage offers generous space for radio gear, allowing you to use standard-sized servos and receivers.
Separate standard servos control the pre-hinged ailerons and flaps. Flap operation requires a 5-channel radio system; you can use your 4-channel radio to fly without working flaps. Hardware for both set-ups is provided
No glue is used for tail assembly. The horizontal and vertical stabilizers install quickly with screws, which align them automatically – and allow you to remove the surfaces easily for transport if desired.
The Cherokee excels with 2- or 4-stroke glow or brushless electric power. Its detailed, photo-illustrated assembly manual takes you step-by-step through installation of either power choice.
The fiberglass wheel pants and cowl arrive painted to match the trim scheme. Each wheel pant attaches to the landing gear with two screws and a nylon strap.
The fuselage offers generous space for radio gear installation, allowing you to use standard sized servos and receivers.
You'll enjoy positive handling on grass or pavement from the Cherokee’s tricycle landing gear — a configuration familiar to anyone who’s mastered a typical 4-channel R/C trainer.
The Cherokee ARF makes a fine choice for everyday sport flying and aerobatics. With a 5-channel radio, you can operate the included flaps – for even greater realism and flight control.
