Giant P-40 EPO 1400 mm

http://www.ready2fly.ch/shop/USER_AR...ID=419#Ziel419

I believe another FMS product. If it's just as nice as my FMS P-51, I'll be getting this one too!

* Span: 1400mm
* Lenght: 1198mm
* Weight: 1750g
* Engine: Brushless Motor
* 50A Brushless ESC
* Mechanical(?) retracts (incl doors and rotating(!) main gear)
* steerable tail wheel (not retractable)
* 7 Servos
* Battery: 14.8V 4S 2200mAh 20C Li-Po

No flaps, but by the looks of the pictures, the flaps are already pre slotted and there are cut outs in the wings for the servo's.

Wow. Looks nice and with rotating retracts. The FMS P-51 has fixed LG right?

Alan...The FMS P-51 version Hobby Lobby was going to issue had fixed LG, It seems all the disributors are selling them with retracts.

Nop, the version of the Mustang I have, v3, has retractable LG. I think the v3 version is only sold in Europe and Asia.

Now this might be a plane I can get my Son hooked on as he like the P40s! I am trying to get him involved in RC along with ol Dad!

Dave

It would also look good along side the P-51 !

Looks great. I just hope we aren't forced to buy it thru banana hobbies like the retract version of the p-51. Otherwise it will just be another plane I want but won't buy because of BH.

What you got more???

BTW the other one will be given within a week so I should be able to give you a report.

Funny I was thinking the same thing about what I needed to sell to afford the new B-25 from HL and the Stuka from hyperion!

Why Banana? you can get it from http://aerialhobby.com/ and maybe even NitroPlanes now.

My workshop is getting crowded
Although I prefer balsa, one very great advantage with foam is that you can store them in a hot/cold/freezing attic without risking warped fuse/wings and sagging covering.
