Savage Bobber from HobbyKing


The H-King Savage Bobber is an easy to assemble and fly, small semi-scale model of this popular STOL lightweight aircraft. It is supplied as an ARF (Almost Ready to Fly), it requires assembling, and your own choice of motor, ESC, servos, receiver, and LiPo battery adding.

The full-size Savage Bobber was devised by the Zlin Aviation Company. The Bobber as in the motorcycle world means that it is a stripped-down, customized version of an original. The Savage Bobber is a stripped-down, customized version of its older brother the Savage Classic. It is lighter, more maneuverable, has a slightly narrower fuselage, and the absence of covering to the rear of the fuselage greatly improves the crosswind handling.

The H-King version of the Savage Bobber has been designed in the same spirit, but unlike previous versions of this model that have been on the market, this one has been rigorously test flown during development. Our pilots have spent many hours flying and tweaking the setup, including changing the flap hinges to hinge at the bottom to allow for a full 90° deflection. Its slow flight characteristics have subsequently been improved, control is retained down to quite low speeds, and steep landing approaches are achievable. The big tundra-style wheels and robust landing gear allow the Savage Bobber to fly from most types of terrain. The Savage Bobber is a fun plane that is easy and amazing to fly and one of the lightest in the 1000mm wingspan category (approx 650g depending on set-up).

The model is hand-crafted from balsa and has a crystal clear plastic windshield, carbon wing joiner, carbon wing struts, and factory-applied covering film with colorful decals. Also supplied is a vacuum-formed plastic cowl, a comprehensive hardware pack, and as mentioned before, it is supplied with scale wheels with large, oversized tundra-type tires.

Although small in size it is large in stature, it will definitely stand out from the crowd at the local flying field. The large, open-sided cockpit lends itself nicely for some added scale detail and possibly a full-length scale pilot! So why not add the H-King Savage Bobber to your model hangar today and have a lot of fun, flying in parks, and those smaller places where you normally are unable to fly with the bigger models.
