This superb scale model captures the spirit of the Golden Age of Aviation perfectly, models of this scale and quality are often out of reach of club modelers, not the Hobbyking Monocoupe!
The quality of construction and level of finish on this model are excellent, the airframe is of a traditional balsa/ply type that offers both a decent flying weight and the kind of durability that will give years of flying pleasure, The Monocoupe offers quick and easy field assembly courtesy of the 2pc wing and quick attach struts, this also makes for simple transportation. As you would expect, all hardware is included and assembly is suprisingly quick.
Despite the high wing configuration, the Monocoupe was a performance aircraft in it's day, and the wide choice of engines courtesy of the huge cowl, allows you to set up this amazing scale model to suit. The H-King Monocoupe is a truly superb scale model that is going to look just stunning both on the flight line and in the air, this is a limited production model which at this price, is just too good to pass up for any scale fan!

Great airplane, have put a Turnigy 30cc gas engine in it. Light, quick, good flyer. I beefed up the nose and firewall some, it seemed lightly built to me, more like an electric model. Airplane, radio, engine, servos, wiring and switches are all from HK. Nice quality stuff. Thank you, HK for your great products and service.I received my Monocoupe 2200mm yesterday from the USA warehouse. It looks better than the pictures. It was packed in a double carton with each piece individually wrapped. There was very little packing material, however there was no damage whatsoever. But the manual was missing. Premium covering was used and had no wrinkles. I think the covering is Oracover. The landing gear is painted aluminum and the four wing/stab tubes are carbon fiber. Two bolts hold each stabilizer onto the fuselage. The elevators and rudder are air foiled. The contents of the box, without wrapping, weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz. (3458 gm). the firewall is 9 inches in diameter and the cowl is 6 inches deep with no fuselage overlap. The ailerons looks like there is a place to split them in two to add flaps to the plane. There looks to be three adjacent servo mounts built into the wing. I contacted customer support about the missing manual.
