The Jackal 50 was created to give sport pilots all the speed and excitement of a jet without the complexity, costs or precocious flying manners of one. Its sleek, swept-wing design makes it possible to achieve scorching speeds using nothing more than Evolution’s economical .60NX engine and a high-performance tuned muffler. It also gives you the option of pushing the speed envelope even further with optional mechanical or pneumatic retracts (HAN501 or HAN502 –sold separately).

Assembling the Jackal 50 is as simple as any other Hangar 9 sport plane. Its low parts count and innovative assembly features, like the bolt-on horizontal stab and elevator servo tray, make it possible to have yours flying in a few evenings. Even the flaps are cut and hinged for you. Just drop in a servo and hook them up.

When it comes to no-hassle flying thrills that truly satisfy the need for speed, the Jackal 50 delivers.
