CITABRIA can certainly be called this generations barnstormer.
Its role in general aviation for the past three decades, as
a sport aerobatic trainer and an economical utility vehicle, is unequalled
by any other recent production aircraft. The CITABRIA was introduced
in the early 1960s by the Champion Aircraft Corp. as a sporty alternative
for private pilots who wanted something different than an all-metal
nosewheel airplane. It was a direct descendant of the venerable Aeronca
Champ. By spelling airbatic backwards, they came up with
the name CITABRIA. Sport fliers fell in love with the CITABRIA because,
even though it had more horsepower and new aerobatic capability,
is still a sweet flying Champ at heart.
Ideal For Sunday Flying or Sport Scale Competition!
This scale model of the CITABRIA flies just as good as the original!
Its big flat-bottomed wing makes it easy and gentle to fly.
Loops, rolls, hammerheads, Immelman turns, and spins are all part
of its aerobatic routine. The CITABRIA can bring you hours of enjoyable
R/C flying. KIT
