The Best of Both Worlds. Hangar 9 and Carden Aircraft have come together to offer a scale aerobatic aircraft for everyone.

The Hangar 9 Carden Aircraft Edition Yak 54 ARF is a shrunken version of the popular Carden 150cc Yak 54. Carden Aircraft participated in this endeavor by working with Hangar 9 to provide their construction techniques, drawings and designs to be used in the creation of the Hangar 9 Carden Edition Yak 54 ARF.

This level of completion is beyond comparison in the giant-scale market. The kit comes highly prefabricated with the fuel tank assembled, hinges and control horns installed and hinge lines sealed. Constructed from durable, lightweight balsa and foam and covered in genuine UltraCote®, the Yak 54 ARF also boasts a balsa truss fuselage construction and balsa sheeted foam-core wings that is Carden Aircraft construction to a tee.

In addition to the unparalleled level of completion, the Yak 54 ARF also has smart design features such as a two-piece wing and stab—standard on all Carden kits—that ensures convenient storage and easy transport to the flying field. Also included are top-quality, durable components like the fiberglass cowl and lightweight aluminum landing gear.

At Hangar 9 and Carden Aircraft, we know how you want them to fly—and nothing less than first class is acceptable.
