The Hall Cherokee is a high-wing, single seat glider that was designed by American Stan Hall in 1956 for amateur builders.  Its simple design and construction methods, together with its flying qualities led to it becoming one of the most popular and produced home-built gliders in the United States.

The Cherokee can be bungee launched and equipped with a servo operated tow release mechanism it can also be towed aloft behind an appropriately sized model such as the Durafly Tundra.

But in case you don't have a bungee cord or you can't find a tow pilot, there is another fun way of getting this version of the Cherokee airborne.  Included in the box is a 30A brushless ESC and a custom 64mm ducted fan unit which simply slots into place behind the cockpit of your Cherokee! 

Once in the air, the Cherokee is a breeze to fly, it is responsive but without any vices and the landings are feather light, no fuss affairs making it ideal for the novice and experienced glider pilot alike.

• Tough EPO construction

I have flown her three times now and the only problem I am having is a very hot speed control. I would suggest that you replace the speed control with at least a 40 amp or greater. The 30 amp esc is inadequate and will burn up if you push it to hard ( very easy to do because this plane looks so good climbing out after a full throttle low pass )
I have found that the speed control that is offered as original equipment on models that I have bought is just barely adequate. Your better off to replace the speed control before your first flight or it could be you first and last as you watch your model melt down from a "cooked" esc.

HobbyKing must have been clearing the last of these in Oz, as the price was very good. I particularly wanted a glider that could take off from my grass. It went together easily, & looks really great on the bench, but could it get off the grass with it's single wheel.

It was a bit squirrely for a few feet while it got enough speed to keep it's wings up level, & out of the grass then took off like a dream.

Flew just as well, easy & predictable & looked beautiful up there. Getting it down was harder. No sign of stalling or tip stall, & it will fly on by so slowly it is amazing, but it wants to stay up there. It took me 3 goes to get it down anywhere near where near where I wanted it.

I'd grab another for my grand son, if they were still available in Oz.
