FMS 800mm P-38 Lightning Coming Soon?

Maybe. Source: http://motion-rc-community-forum.107...1807p1859.html

I don't know about you guys, but this would be my dream warbird. The P-38 always has been my favorite WWII plane, and with the quality and value FMS puts in their planes, I'm more than excited! I love the 800mm series, and wow, a twin would be just killer!

If it comes to fruition, I'm suspect it will be four channel, with twin rudders please. I also suspect it'll be fixed gear, and no flaps. Not a problem for me, as long as they add the drop tanks for belly landing skids. Flap mods are always easy, too.

CCW props are a must, and I would hope they use them.

I'm like a kid on Christamas Eve. Please, please make my dreams come true, FMS...

Cut-n-paste from the thread, from Tom at Motion RC:

I suspect there is zero chance of a 1700mm P-38. It sounds like FMS is very concerned with the development costs of these larger planes. 800mm would be a much greater possibility.

If they're worried about development costs, wouldn't it make more sense to revamp the current/discontinued p-38. It was a beautiful plane, just a few bugs and hopeless mtrs. At the current rate nobodies getting my money, HH/Parkzone seems lost and FMS seems to be on a diet! At least Dynams got a cropduster coming out

I've also been wanting one for a while just a wee bit bigger! Been looking at the 1400 for a coons age and hoping for a new version! Thas all!

A 31" P-38 would be kinda' cool honestly. I like my Micro P-38 but the undercambered wing and general squirreliness in anything but dead-calm conditions kind of takes away from the experience. 800mm with an actual airfoil and full-house would be nice.

Got it. No harm, no foul.

I was eyeballing the 1400 as well, flaps, gear and lights, looked very nice. I'd still like an 800-1000 P-38 though, four channel would be fine with me. If you haven't tried one of the FMS 800's you really should. Small enough to fly just about anywhere, and they fly amazingly well. IMHO, it's hard to beat the bang for the buck on this series of planes.

Still hoping that a smaller one shows up, I'd be first in line to buy one...

Maybe it'll come out around the same time as that Flyzone B-25.

You really would to the thread and us a favor if you at least put a question mark after the title sentence...

It's too much of a stretch to say it is coming the way you wish it might. It's barely suggested to happen.
