Very Nice Plane!
Review by Mr R. on 16 Jul 2019review stating Very Nice Plane!
I inherited a nice OS 91FS and was looking for a .60 class plane to lash it to and the Twist .60 did not disappoint. I was very impressed with the level of completion Hangar 9 provided. The control horns were preinstalled and everything fit together very nicely. The one comment that others have made that I found to be true is this plane is lightly built when compared to a GP Stick or Escapade. That is a fact as it is a "3-D" plane, however after at least 20 good flights with that big heavy four stroke it is holding up fine. Further, the plane balanced quite well with this set up - slightly nose heavy. There is no information in the manual on how to go about installing a four stroke, but anyone with any experience will have no problem. That task went very smoothly with a slight relocation of the throttle pushrod. I have no interest in 3-D and found this to be a very stable and fun general sport plane to fly. I found it to feel like a "Stick". It will fly easy or crazy and then slow down nicely to land. I think that light build will be enjoyed by those that fly electric. I did find the recommended throws to be quite conservative and I fly the plane using close to the high rates recommended.
This was my first Hangar 9 plane but it certainly won’t be the last!

Review by Dgholmes59 on 31 Jan 2011review stating Love this Plane
I started flying RC planes September 2010. My goal when I started was to fly 3D. I have progressed from the GP PT-60, H9 PTS P-51, H9 Pizazz 40 to the H9 Twist 60. I bought the Twist because I love the Pizazz so much, but still had not performed any 3D type of maneuvers until the Twist.
In the Twist, I installed a Super Tiger 90 with a 15 x 4 prop and installed Hitec digital servos with the wing CG set at 5.5". This has become my favorite plane! I just love flying it. Thanks to alot of time on the Phoenix Flight Simulator I even performed my first 3D maneuvers yesterday, harrier and hover. I could not believe how easy it was to hover this plane. It actually looked like I knew what I was doing. The landings are as easy as a trainer. Flaring to a 3 point landing is super easy. And that is on low rates (have not flown high rates yet).
Assembly was super easy. I think the only glue I used was to harden up the drilled holes for the servos. I used screws and tape on the canopy instead of canopy glue. Since I had never built a kit, I was surprised how little there was to do. Just install all of the parts per the manual and install radio equipment, engine and prop. Everything else was in the box. The most difficult part for me was drilling straight holes through the motor mount. I did have to Dremel a notch for the carberator main needle and drill a hole for the low speed needle adjustment.
I maidened the plane myself and only needed a few clicks on the ailerons and a click or two on the elevator for level flight. The plane flew absolutely great. I love how you can fly it slow or fast. Loops were straight and little to know drop in the turns. Due to its size, it was easier to see than my Pizazz.
I will definitely buy another Twist 60 when I wear this one out. Just too much fun to fly!!!

Review by P31lightning on 11 Jul 2012review stating Fantastic plane!!!!
If you have any kind of low wing flying experience, and want to have a blast, look no further, the Twist 60 is the plane for you!!!! It’s easy to see no matter how far away you fly it, it is rock solid once is properly balance, and it is capable of every maneuver that you can throw at it!! Because of its thick airfoil it’s super easy to control. This bird is a blast!!! To top it all the landing gear on this plane is super tought, it is capable of absorbing the roughest landings!! The wheels are made out of real rubber with an inside core of foam, so that they won't get out of shape and they also help to cushion the landings. I bought the 60 for me, and the 40 for my 13 years old son, and all I can tell you is that they’re awesome, trust me on this one get the 60 and put an O.S. 91 four stroke on it with an APC 12X9 and prepare yourselves to have a lot of fun!!! If you decide to go with the 40 strap a 46 O.S. AX on it with an APC 11X6 and be ready to rock and roll!!! These two planes are just great!!! They’re affordable, easy to put together, and a joy to fly!! Get e’m, you won’t regretted!!!

Review by Rsneakypete on 3 Apr 2011review stating Very nice plane
Bought my twist 60 from horizon hobby. It only took 4 days to receive it. The monocote job they did on the plane was excellent. It went together very easy. I would recomend this plane to anybody that doesn't know how to build a plane. I am very impressed with it so far.

Review by Pittsflyer on 3 Mar 2011review stating continuing exellance
I recently purchased the 60 twist as sadly the 150 is no longer available. The packaging is UPS resistant and the internals are nicely grouped, the only glitch was the two wing holddown bolts which were VERY sloppy. I replaced the supplied parts with some from private stock and all was well. As usual follow the directions properly and you will have something to truly enjoy.No suprises here. I am currently using this to teach a ten yearold to fly on suggested low rates and he truly loves it.Strange comment he gave me,its cool to learn on it cause it does'nt look like a trainer. Currently powered by a OS60FX and will be repowered by a YS110 further down the road for a little more juice for me. Thanks again for still supplying the 60 twist and I still wistfully wish the 150 could be rereleased down the road. In case you all were wondering I was shot down by a pit mistake during a flight demo for the scouts as I still fly a 9CAP on 72 mhz.
