Focke wulf FW 190 by Guanli 'The Butcher Bird'
I picked up this cool little Guanli FW 190 off EBAY here in Australia for what I thought was a pretty cheap price of $75 which included shipping It has a 1m wingspan and is a nice parkflyer size. The foam is a very tough EPS, not brittle like some EPS foams out there but definitely not as bouncy as EPO. The level of detail is ok and overall it looks not too bad....for the price
On the down side I have to say the aileron control system used allows for too much flex and the results are a sluggish feel. I've since now installed servos in each wing to fix the problem and it's worked. If you want a good flying, cheap little parkflyer that you can just toss in the car then this FW 190 would fit the bill nicely The power system I chose for it works very well with good flight times of around 8mins of mixed flying with a 2200 3S and has enough power to go vertical with ease.
Power system is as follows : 262 Watts @ 22Amps on 2250 3S 20C battery and 9x7.5 2 blade EMP prop. Motor is a Moxie 1100kv with 25A ESC.
EDIT June 2011: if you want a power upgrade or just want even more grunt from the start then this 1200kv motor
I have found to be very good, but depending on what prop you use you may have to go up to a 40A esc.
