Parkzone Ultra Micro P-40 Warhawk (2S Brushless) "Stella" Landing Gear Test
I flew Stella today for the Landing Gears Flight Test from this afternoon till Sundown at David Lorenz Park with 6-7 mph gusty winds. Throttle management and speed are a must for landing her gracefully. Sadly no video at this time, but soon.
She passed beautifully.
Parkzone Ultra Micro P-40 Warhawk (2S Brushless) "Stella" - Gears On Flight
Best viewed in Fullscreen and HD! This is the second recorded flight of my Parkzone Ultra Micro P-40 Warhawk (2S Brushless) "Stella", demonstrating her flight characteristics with the Landing Gears installed.

With the Landing Gears on, her flight characteristics do not seem to be affected much if at all, thanks to the Eflite Brushless 180 2500KV Motor and UMX P-47 4-Bladed Prop. She can easily perform aggressive Warbird Maneuvers, even with the larger 1" foam wheels, taken from a spare set of UMX Habu Wheels.
Cold temperatures have arrived in Colorado and my hands were freezing at the park. I could feel the Eflite 2S 200mAh 30C battery struggle a bit in the colder temps during the more aggressive maneuvers, however lasted easily through the 5 minutes of flight.
Landings can be a bit of a challenge as the P-40 has a noticeable stall speed that you have to be above. Anything below that stall speed and she will let you know with a wing tip. I've watched too many videos of this same plane with other pilots trying to glide her in too slowly, and have met the deck with a wing over or a tip. I've taken heed of this and am very mindful on that final approach.
Flying her now with the 2S Brushless Conversion is incredibly fun and thrilling, and landings test your finesse. I like that this is a plane that tests the pilot and loves to be flown like a Warbird.
What a great plane!
