  • Official Black Horse Super Decathlon 2450mm ARF Thread

    Super Decathlon 2450mm (96.4") Wingspan from Black Horse - Balsa Wood ARF - BHM1006-001


    The American Champion 8KCAB Decathlon and Super Decathlon are two-seat fixed conventional gear light airplanes designed for flight training and personal use and capable of sustaining aerobatic stresses between +6g and −5g.

    Black Horse's RC model is scaled to approximately 1:4 scale and attention was paid to a true to original appearance and best flight characteristics. The model can be operated using an electric power system or a gas or nitro power system.

    Visit the Official Black Horse Super Decathlon 2450mm Discussion Thread on HobbySquawk.com for additional photos, videos, reviews, and customer Q&A.
    Detailed Cockpit


    A detailed cockpit and painted pilot adds to the realism and scale appeal. An opening door reveals the detailed instrument panel and false floor that conceals other electronics.
    Fiberglass Molded Cowl


    The one-piece painted cowl requires minimal adaptation to your preferred power system.
    Gas or Electric Power


    You can choose between gas or electric to power your model depending on your preference.
    Scale Details


    The Decathlon sports several scale details and functions including opening cabin doors and metal braces. Clear molded plastic windows and windscreens enhance the realism and provide a view into the detailed cabin, including painted internal bracing structures.
    Vibrant Paint Scheme


    The model comes with a bold and beautiful red and white paint scheme that is highly visible. Its airfoil is carefully selected for class "high-wing" flight characteristics, with a very mild stall, high lift, and stable behavior.

      Anyone know if a 50cc engine would be too much for this one?

        50cc would probably just be to much for what the airframe needs. You can check the manual here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/10...lon_Manual.pdf

          Kind of what I figured. I have a spare 50cc laying around looking for a new home, LOL. Thanks
