NEW TOP RC HOBBY Hawker Hurricane 750mm NEW RELEASE





Well i have been in contact for Top RC Hobby who are a manufacture in shenzehen - southern China (a city very close to the Hong kong's border which i lived there for nearly 3 years )

Im going to be buying there FW-190B 1200mm+ GEEBEE R3R 1200mm+ 400 Class Cessna 965mm but when i received there price list i also noticed a Hawker Hurricane they make so i thought i would make a post and let you know.
I contacted the sales woman again on Friday and asked for photos of the hurricane and received them on monday.I have heard good things about Top Rc hobby so far and from personal experience i think they mite be true but i will withhold judgement until my planes arrive.

Here's the photos anyway ,quality on the hurricane is ok going by the photos but the FW-190 6 channel aircraft are amazing and low price if you deal direct with them.

The retracts look amazing on this bird.
THFW190 (1 min 47 sec)


SN Hobbies - Top R/C Hobby FW-190 Flight Testing (3 min 42 sec)

Flight



They make a regular blue and green colour as well and a much nicer looking brown and green coloured(you need to ask for the yellow version) Hurricane too.I just thought i would share my info as there are not many hurricanes to choose from.

nice Hurricane,but why did they make it so small! I would love to see a 1100mm version with retracts!
Still,due to the lack of good Hurricanes,if it hits US shores I will buy one....or two.

Nice to see another Hurricane - like the blue/grey cammo. The Windrider Hurricane is 48" and the Elfight is a little larger. This 30" is on par with the GWS original size. With retracts... we will have to see how it fares.

Check that last... this bird has no retracts! Not on par with their other planes.

I just went to their website.There is a pic of an awesome looking T-34C(turbine version).No specs posted so I can't tell what size it is.It might be small like the hurri,but I hope it is larger.I couldn't copy and paste a pic from their website.Looks like it might be a pre production photo.Looking at it closely,I think I can see a gear well in the wing,so I am hoping it is the same size as the Focke wolf.If it is,I am buying one for sure!I looked closer and I now think it has fixed gearI emailed them for more info.Let's see if I get a response.If I do I will post it here.

Looks good, but I also like the big one, it is a little small I think.

i dont see anything on rc hobby's site about it at all. Where did you see a blue grey camo and yellow one?

Nicesky is releasing a 700mm Hurricane this month. Very difficult to find any info on it though and the only etailers i can find for it are in Germany, for some reason.

Amigo if you had read my first post properly then you would of known that the Hurricane is not on there website.
i had to ask for them to email me the photos to me and they also don't have a blue nosed P51 as well as a yellow one with a 750mm Wingspan on there website.



They also do a red & white (also not on the website) T34 mentor and a Blue and white version (on there site)



Hurricane
750mm Wingspan
622mm length
422g Weight
1:1 Thrust
DST-1300 (KV-1300) MOTOR
1000 mah 7.4v 15c
9g x 4 Servos
4 channel

I don't have any photos of the P51 apart from these tiny ones + basic info
P51 stats are the same as the above hurricane apart from length- 648mm

Darksaber.Do you have any info on the T-34 that is on their website?It is a T-34c model that is navy blue with sharks mouth at the intake cheeks.It looks awesome! I want one if/when it is available.Wondering what size it is.I emailed them,but haven't had a response back yet.I am guessing that the T-34 AND the P-51 are all in the 750mm range.

i just had a thought try contacting snhobbies.com as they sell 2 Top rc hobby aircraft so maybe they could put a order in for you if you live in the USA.
They also stock the Geebee 1200mm made by TOP.

Well,I contacted Top RC Model days ago and no response back.Sooo,I sent an email to rc-castle.Guess what,no response from them either.Don't these companies want to sell their products or what?I've had that problem before when contacting similar companies that are not on us shores.So I went ahead and spent the money I could have used to buy these.I'll try a few more emails before I give up.If I still get no response I will just move on.
