Sooo hot.

I have hundreds of flights on my PZ Corsair and I'm not even close to sick of it yet. If this one is half as entertaining, I won't be flying much else.

the KV on this motor is low (720kv?) to allow the use of that beautiful 3-blade prop... but that might make for a slower model.

I'm thinking 10x10x2 on a 4s pack to keep up with the Corsair (on 4s).

The flight performance of this plane is as similar as we could get it to the T-28 and Corsair. When the video is up in the morning you can see how it flies. It uses the 1800 3s battery, same as the F4U and T-28. Battery is not worked hard as we have flown this setup alot during the summer on hot days. Wait until you guys see the production version in the gallery on the website. Lookes even better than the pics that John posted. We are very excited with the Bf-109 and worked very hard to provide the most scale Z-foam warbird yet. We tested a 2-blade prop with this motor and it needed an APC 12 x 12E to get similar flight performance, but the 3-blade looks so much better.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Can you tell us if in fact this model comes with the E-Flite 15 power or is it a PARK ZONE copy?

a little history of the Messerschmitt Bf 109

Messerschmitt Bf 109 (Wikipedia)

The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was a German World War II fighter aircraft designed by Willy Messerschmitt in the early 1930s. It was one of the first true modern fighters of the era, including such features as an all-metal monocoque construction, a closed canopy, and retractable landing gear.

The Bf 109 was produced in greater quantities than any other fighter aircraft in history, with a total of 33,984 units produced up to April 1945. Fighter production totalled 47% of all German aircraft production, and the Bf 109 accounted for 57% of all German fighter types produced. A total of 2,193 Bf 109 A-E were built prewar, from 1936 to August 1939. Some 865 Bf 109 derivatives were manufactured postwar under licence as Czechoslovakian-built Avia S-99 & S-199s and Spanish-built Hispano Aviación HA-1109 and HA-1112 Buchons.

The Bf 109 was the backbone of the Luftwaffe fighter force in World War II, although it began to be partially replaced by the Focke-Wulf Fw 190 from 1941. Originally conceived as an interceptor, it was later developed to fulfill multiple tasks, serving as bomber escort, fighter bomber, day-, night- all-weather fighter, bomber destroyer, ground-attack aircraft, and as reconnaissance aircraft. Although the Bf 109 had weaknesses, including short range and challenging takeoff and landing characteristics, it remained competitive with Allied fighter aircraft until the end of the war.

The aircraft served with several countries during the war, and with some for many years after. The Bf 109 was flown by the three top-scoring fighter aces of World War II whom were credited with 928 victories between them while flying with Jagdgeschwader 52, chiefly on the Eastern Front, as well as by the highest scoring German ace in the North African Campaign, claiming all of his 158 victories flying the against Western Allied pilots. It was also flown by high-scoring non-German aces, notably from Finland, Romania, Croatia and Hungary.

Originally the aircraft was designated as Bf 109 by Reichsluftfahrtministerium (German Aviation Ministry, RLM), since the design was submitted by the Bayerische Flugzeugwerke company. However, the company was renamed Messerschmitt AG after July 1938 when Erhard Milch finally allowed Willy Messerschmitt to acquire the company. Subsequently, all Messerschmitt aircraft that originated after that date, such as the Me 210, were to carry the "Me" designation. Despite regulations by the RLM, wartime documents from Messerschmitt AG, RLM and Luftwaffe loss and strength reports continued to use both designations, sometimes even on the same page. All extant airframes are described as "Bf 109" on identification plates, including the final K-4 models, with the noted exception of aircraft either initially built or re-fitted by Erla Flugzeugwerke, which sometimes bore the Me 109 stamping. "Me-109" is usually pronounced in German as may hundert-neun ("hundred-nine") while English-speakers usually say "emm ee one-oh-nine".

=Designation and nicknames=

The aircraft was given several nicknames by its operators and opponents, generally derived from the name of the manufacturer (Messer, Mersu, Messzer etc.), or the external appearance of the aircraft: the G-6 variant was nicknamed by Luftwaffe personnel as Die Beule ("The bump/bulge") because of the cowling's characteristic covers for the breeches of the later Bf 109G's synchronized 13 mm (.51 in) MG 131 machine guns, while Soviet aviators nicknamed it as "the skinny one" for its sleek appearance (compared to the more robust Fw 190). The names "Anton", "Bertha", "Caesar", "Dora", "Emil", "Friedrich", "Gustav" and "Kurfürst" were derived from the variant's official letter designation (i.e. Bf 109G - 'Gustav'), based on the German phonetic alphabet of World War II; a practice that was also used for other German aircraft designs.

It is not the E-Flite Power 15. It is a different kV version of the 15 motor in the E-Flite Apprentice. Same diameter as the 480 in T-28's and F4U's but longer length.
