Sold
REDUCED - 40N Giant Scale 6s w/flaps, lights & retracts 1700mm EPO - $SOLD shipped

For sale is a HUGE P-40N Giant Scale 6s w/flaps, lights & retracts 1700mm EPO (PNF). Everything is included to fly, with the exception of your own Tx / Rx, and 4000mAh~4500mAh 6s Lipoly Battery.

It is brand new in the box, and I just opened it to check for shipping damage. Woo hoo! There is NO shipping damage! This is the 2nd one that I received, and the 1st one had a slightly bent tail, BUT THIS ONE IS PRISTINE! It is hit or miss with planes like this from China, and this one was packed and handled well.

I lowered the price to $SOLD which includes FedEx ground shipping to the continental US. Please PM me if you are interested or have any questions.

You can find information about this beast here (note the 5-STAR rating!):

Additional info:

The P-40 Warhawk saw action in many theatres in WW2, including the Mediterranean, North Africa and the Pacific where it was used as both a fighter and more successfully as a ground attack aircraft. Most famously, the P-40 was used by the Chinese Flying Tiger squadron flown by US pilots, the success of this squadron against the Japanese airforce in China, even against the feared Zero, made them household names around the world.

This P-40 Warhawk is simply huge for a foam model! Being EPO, it is as tough as you would expect but at the same time, the moulded detailing is simply amazing. Despite it's size, this Warhawk should be easy to transport with it's removable 1pc wing and removable tailplane. The plastic moulded part details, like the very scale exhaust stubs, 3 blade prop/spinner, bomb cradle, .50 Cal machine guns, cockpit detail just go on and on and make for a stunning scale model.

The list of working features is equally impressive, pre-fitted split flaps, pre-fitted nagivation lights, superb twist and turn electric retracts that feature sprung legs and large rubber tires which like the retracting tailwheel, are also pre-fitted. The landing gear is linked to a sequencer for the U/C doors for that final scale touch. We have been extensively involved in the development of this stunning P-40N and the end result is a not just a scale model to be proud of but also a superb flying model that looks every bit as good in the air as on the ground. This P-40 is a must for warbird fans and is so easy to fly it is also a great choice for the intermediate pilot looking to move up in scale, as the saying goes "the bigger they are, the better they fly" and they don't fly any better than this beauty!

I've come back & looked at this thing 3-4 times now....want you to know that. If it only had the 'soft' struts I'd have been all over it!

What do you think it'd take to get it changed over to the traditional 'sharkface' scheme? (I'd much prefer!) Is there a decal/sticker set or something in this scale available out there?

Hmmmm.....trade, eh? I've got a couple of quads, but they're each worth more than your P-40.
(In fact if I'd realized how expensive those darn things can get up to, I'd have never gotten started!)
